Since the date that my computer was hacked, I was able to successfully resolve the issues with Paypal, my bank accounts and the unfortunate people involved who were also victimized as a result of this incident. Paypal has provided me with a Secret Decoder Key card to use which utilized several safety password features and precautions when logging onto their site when/ if I need to make an internet purchase. I have also opened a separate bank account just for the sole use of making internet purchases. When I get ready to make an internet payment, I simply transfer funds into that particular account and then utilize Paypal. I have been doing this on my other computer which was not violated because until just recently I had not felt safe doing this on the computer that was compromised.
Now that my computer is clean, firewalled, and active spyware is installed, is there anything else I need to do? Should I get rid of emails that contain passwords to accesss other sites and accounts, or simply hide them in non-conspicuous files/folders in my computer? Or should I just keep them manually written down and totally off the computer?
Any advise regarding this would be greatly appreciated.
