I've been hacked!

yes...someone hacked my youtube account and posted some fake video about "free samples" of some sort. They stole some video footage and made some fake video with a link asking for people's email and things.
I am so sorry that someone has done this. I  am blocked from youtube right now and they also hacked into my email so I can't get into my emails either.
The only things they didn't hack and I have different passwords for is my facebook, my blog, and a few other things.
I spent the afternoon editing a hair video to post tonight too! (hopefully youtube will fix this soon!)
Thanks to everyone who knew this was not a typical Kandee video...(no intro, no intro music, no usually kandee-ness in the beginning)..and reported it to me...I'm just waiting to hear back from youtube and my email account! (don't worry anyone that emailed the glaminar email is safe!)
AND THEN.....
I remembered this guy!
i remember my mom just took this picture of me in the airport...and the look who showed up in the background...poor guy!
Look at the guy in the background...I will admit I struck his same pose tonight after finding out about the fake video, my youtube being hacked and being blocked from my email!


The good news is, at times like this..and ofcourse times when things are much worse than being hacked...we can choose to be victims and say "oh no!" look at all this going wrong.....
OR we can say....what can I do to try to help and fix this!
Short of changing all my passwords...calling and texting all my friends who have inside tech knowledge...and getting them to help me....I'm on my way to hopefully fixing all this soon!
OR I could've just sat with my hand over my face and tried not to have a little breakdown.


Everyday, no matter what happens we need to think like someone that refuses to be a victim of life and it's "junk" that gets us down...(breakups, family problems, relationship issues, being hacked, financial matters)...
we need to think OFFENSIVELY, react like an conqueror, a warrior..ready to take back control of your day...and your life! (and your youtube channel! ha ha ha)

I read this little story today and man is it great for me today!
 2 fisherman got caught in the middle of a lake during a big storm....
the one fisherman asked the other, "Should we row? Or should we pray?"...
his wise friend said, "BOTH!!!"

REFUSE to be a defeated by anything life dishes out to you...AND start your day and your thoughts saying "you can try to stop me..but I'm gonna be like a huge warrior that plows through anything that gets in my way!"
Take back the victory in your life!
And like those fishermen...I'm gonna row through the stormy waters of the internet and pray!

I feel sorry for the person that hacked into my youtube...that must feel very sad inside to have to try to do things like that...
no one's gonna get me down...let's refuse to be victimized....and keep going until we're waving a VICTORY flag!

down but not out, crushed but not destroyed... kandee

Nice fishermen story... I needed that today. Sorry about your accounts Kandee. Wishing you and yours a good week!

SarahSmile said...

unfortunately, i fell for the hack. i clicked the link and filled out the info. :( then it started looking weird so i stopped. then i noticed another beauty guru had the same video and i got suspicious. so ive changed all my passwords. hackers are so sad

Foxy said...

instead of youtube, try posting to http://vimeo.com/ :)

Saria Rin said...

You tell 'em, Kandee!
Stupid hackers, if they put half the effort they put into hacking in to something else more productive, it'd be a lot more, well, productive.

How lame.

annisuvi said...

Ouh, how sad :( I hate hackers!!

Shinee_Gurl18 said...

It always leaves me speechless when someone does a harmful thing to another person who doesn't deserve it. I get angry and annoyed by the person's meanness. How can anyone be willing to do even the smallest harm to someone they don't even know? What do they get out of it? Is it such a big satisfaction to see someone hurt by your own deeds? I say that it's more than mean, it cruel and diabolical. And it's not just about the account, but generally speaking. And I'm also talking about the people who say harmful things to another person they don't even know, which is worse than any hacked account...:(

I'm sorry for what happened to you, Kandee, but don't worry, we will support you to the end. Because it's not about how many times you fall, but about how many times you get up!

:*

MYMiC said...

Aw >_< those people are so mean, I'm happy they did not hack all of your personal stuff.. Glad you're back <3

Love,
My in Sweden ^_^/

Some things in this world are just plain crazy but I've got to tell you thanks for refusing to be a victim. Two years ago I was laid off from work after 30 years on the job. At this moment my bank account is overdrawn and we don't have much food in the house right now for me an my invalid 84 year old mother and my cat. I've been watching your videos for make-up advice because frankly no one seems to want to hire me. (I need to try to look younger somehow...I go on the interview but thats as far as I get.) Anyway. Your words are so inspiring, I forgot what it's like to feel victorious in the face of circumstances. I've been feeling like the guy in the background for quite a while now, letting myself down in the face of life. I am a warrior, I've done it before, I can do it again. I'm sorry you got hacked but I've awfully grateful to read about it in your blog. I am truly inspired by your words.

Kayla said...

Some people... Yeesh!
Good for you for not becoming a victim!
I hope everything gets sorted out for you very soon!!
Sending love~

tanamojo said...

oh my gosh. i signed up for the samples, thinking it was you. Kandee, please help me. Will I get hacked?

Selena said...

Awwwe Kandee I love that VICTORY flag you put there at the end =)
You are so encouraging and positive <3 <3
When I clicked on the link, it brought me to a blank page that never loaded. I guess it got taken down, which would be awesomeness.

PS I love your zebra print bag. I just bought a zebra printed purse perfect for school :D

PPS I still love that you travel with your mum^^

Gina said...

I hope this can get fixed quickly so we can see your hair video!!
Have a super great day,
Gina

Kandee, I'm glad you're positive about this and come to think about it, maybe this is God's way of putting you through a bad thing so that you can inspire so many people to be strong!

kiss

Kanaan-Z said...

Kandee, whoever did this to you is shameless and deserves a serious punishment. problem is his/her editing is so CRAP and their purpose is so pointless. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH and CANT WAIT TILL THIS PROBLEM IS FIXED!

Kat said...

VioletPhoenix said...

Jodi said...

Amen sista!!

Katherine & Jesus said...

Sorry that happend, I did think it was odd that you werent talking in your video....so now I know why. And btw thanks for being so sweet and cheerful. I am going through infertility issues and when I read to keep going and to take my life back it really made my heart happy. You rock!

ktrnk0rn said...

wow. Whoever participated in that really needs a life. It's happened to me too, usually it happens to people that get attention on the internet. Keep your chin up; they're just insecure little idiots that know they'll never be like you.

Nicole✗✗ said...

It's inspiring to hear how positive you are about this.

Tink said...

They got to Facebook. People are horrible. Sorry you have to deal with these horrible people.

Jade said...

swampwateralgae said...

Your hackers are located out of Hong Kong. I traced the ip address. I took a screen shot if you want it.

o0.needia.0o said...

Well said! I hope everything is fixed soon! =)

Ann said...

What an awesome post! Great inspirational fisherman story.

You're so awesome in that you tag the problem, instead of just sitting there sulking about it!

LOL @ the guy in the picture. Poor dude... makes me wonder what his woes were.

marston said...

What will happen if you did fall for the link and did fill out for the info like emails and address?

Ariel2010 said...

I hope it gets fixed soon. I'm glad you are staying positive.

Kacie88 said...

Ugh Hackers are annoying!!! I had my email hacked once and I no lie they sent porn to all of my contacts..I had to e-mail every single one of them apologizing even people I don't talk to anymore or had gotten into it (fights) with! So I changed my passwords and then deleted all my contacts and got a new e-mail address so others can contact me haha...but hey your back online and thats something to be proud of you definitely showed them that no one can take the Kandee away!!
