Thank you so very much The Book Designer Blog Joel Friedlander and Nate Hoffelder for this very informative blog post about our CreateSpace Author Accounts being endangered!
By Nate Hoffelder
We’ve been contacted by a couple of our readers who have, unfortunately, had their Createspace accounts hacked, and we felt this was something you all needed to be aware of. We are pleased to provide this guest post by Nate Hoffelder on the topic. If you have a Createspace account, you will definitely want to read this.
Authors who have an account on Createspace should go change their passwords immediately — and while they’re at it, they should also double check their payment details.
Reports of Hacking
This story has for the most part been ignored by the press, but starting sometime in March or April 2018, hackers began to target author accounts on Createspace.
I have read multiple independent reports in several closed Facebook groups, Reddit, and on Kbaords dated in April, June, July, August, and as late as the first week of November from authors who say that someone hacked their CS account.
