Hackers have tapped into the online job-seeking site monster.com, looking for user names and passwords.
They can then use all that personal information such as your name, address, phone number, and personal contacts.
Researchers at the online security firm Symantec detected the scheme last week. They're warning that those who've fallen prey probably had spyware or other malicious programs secretly installed on their computers.
Symantec says it has alerted Monster.com and is also advising that people with access to its system be given special passwords that are hard to guess and frequently changed.
