hello everyone - I joined last night and am very excited to be here. I do have one question however - I received a mail from HF after signing up asking me to confirm my email address (which is normal). One minute later however I got a mail from my email provider alerting me that someone was trying to connect from Germany but I dont live in Germany. One more minute later I received a second mail from HF with help on what to do next. I just think its odd I received an alert in between the two HF mails and wondered if anyone else had that happened. Is it a normal thing due to the fact the server is my computer ? If so I am relieved though would have preferred not to spend 1 hour changing passwords In all my years with this pc and my email account I have never received an alert like this. If its nothing to do with signing up it sure is a coincidence ! Please let me know thanks and look foward to seeing you all !
Most likely a coincidence the things happen
Thanks Menithal for getting back. Sighs…good thing i changed them all then! Though a very strange coincidence I think maybe it may interest the developers ie if some malicious third party is getting data on people connecting. I was reading the posts on the vulnerabilities in the stack manager so wonder still if related. Then again it may be my suspicious inner self talking
thanks again for your speedy reply.
