Admitting failure is not a pleasure but a requirement

with one comment


Over the past several months I have being forced to put much effort in other tasks then following my actual business of Coaching and Mentoring. The reason is that I now have to clean the mess some people, that I have no clue for now who they are, created within my Social- and Business Network. What has happened?
 
The short story is; my computer was compromised. It looks that I had a Trojan that allowed those who planted it to monitor just everything from Voice, Writing, eMailing, Video etc. In short just all. My PW vault became a wide open book where I have stored over 100 PWs. Even when Mentoring Clients Online using Skype it was possible to monitor that confidential conversation.
 
The long story is, I am not yet able to write in details about it as we are still combing through the mess to find clues. So much only – my internal business statistics over the past 18 months have shown weird results. I was never able to understand what really happened. But sometimes in the second part of 2011 I found  evidences that this could only be related to a compromised Computer. Since early this year I have setup a new computer and tightened security. Only time will tell if I was right.
 
It is never a pleasure to admit your computer was compromised and you have being made a fool. But I’d rather tell this now as my business and company was badly shaken by this. And not telling publicly would only encourage further manipulations.
 
This is a work in progress and I will post here any news coming out.
