Pinterest Hacking

In the interests of social media, I have dabbled, all be it very slightly in Pinterest.

I was most surprised to receive multiple notifications of interest in the boards/ pins over the weekend. In fact my e-mail account nearly had heart failure over the numbers. Not having been active on the account for a while I smelt a fish!!!

Upon inspection my account now contained many boards which I had not created nor pinned items to. I deleted all rogue boards, only to have more appear over the next few days. Good old Google search informed me of hackers accessing Pinterest and being responsible for these boards. I have now changed my password and we wait and see. So be warned if this happens to you.
