Grey Hat ??? Identity Compromised

November 20, 2006 11:52 pm

I got a weird voice mail on my cell phone today that said “Gary Have You Heard of Grey Hat” i was thinking to myself at first what the fuck is that? Is it my friend Trevor calling me from Edmonton as the voice sounded very similar. I called Trevor to see if it was him but it wasn’t. While talking to Trevor I got a incoming call from the same number that left the voice message. I picked it up and the guy was like.. “Are you Gary Lau? I have all your personal records from your computer. I was like Who are you. He’s like I’m part of a Grey Hat Society. I was stunned. Than he goes into explaining to me how Grey Hat finds volunterabilities in your system and exploits it. He verifies some of the files I have on the system. He goes on to say I’m not going to do any damage with your data I just want to let you know that someone else could have and that you should change all your passwords for all your online sites.

I am now freaked and don’t know what to do. I have already changed all my online passwords off a clean machine and have contacted the credit bureau and my bank.

I searched google and found that grey hat hackers are people who hack / exploit system to later contact the system owner about it. Now I’m thinking that’ great. What do I now.

Any suggestions?
