Back in 2010, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney noticed something weird about his email. Someone managed to break into his email and started sending out messages to everyone on his mailing list. They said something to the effect of “Help! I’m stranded in the UK and I don’t have any money to get home. Please send me some cash.”
Dozens of texts came in alerting Patrick that he’d been hacked. Fortunately, the hack wasn’t total and Patrick was able to log into his account and shut it down before anyone sent any money to the wrong people. He’s had a much more robust password ever since.
Yesterday, we spoke of some Audioslave issues.
