I THINK I've been hacked

Post by SuperLoki on Thu Nov 11, 2010 10:17 am

Obviously I'm not certain, but just seconds ago, I watched my Rebecca1208 MSN account log online, while I'm active on my main MSN. Having sent a message, the account isn't responding, and it's not notified me.

While writing this, the account suddenly logged off. I logged in myself (though appearing offline now) and am about to do a whole load of check ups and password resets.


So please be aware - something may have gone very wrong, and if "I" act out or do anything unusual, please, block me.

That seems suspect Suspect

Changing or resetting the password is a great idea. I had to do it with both my hotmail accounts and haven't sent out spam ever since.

Ok, the user is back on, and signed on from a mobile device... my phones are incapable of that!

Something is definitely wrong here. I've already resetted some passwords - gotta change a whole lot more.

Hmm, I can't tell from my side, but if you reset the password now and they log off later, they won't be able to log back on.

If you sign onto MSN from somewhere else, it will log you off. I don't think it's hacks, they just know your username and password.

I think Becca has two MSN accounts, and finding out someone's pasword is hacking in a way.

Thing is, the only places that would save my passwords is this laptop and the computer my sister is using right now. I know for a fact I've never logged into that account on Jakey's computer, and NEVER in school, college, or any other 'outside place'.


And yes, I have 2 accounts.

Well by using the term hacking it sounds like this hacker is messing around with your computer and looking at your personal info, but it's just MSN.

Do you have your MSN set so it remembers you? Or if a computer is restarted that it auto logs in?

Andy- Not at all - different user names, different MSN names, different browsers, and she'd tell me if I sent her a random message on MSN, as we sometimes do.

So with a lot of certainty I can say it wasn't her :s

The account hasn't logged back on yet..



Saki- Ah, I have a different meaning for the term. My bad. Still, as far as I'm aware someone has gotten a hold of my password, which could actually be very bad, as sometimes I use same/similar passwords. Yes MSN remembers me, but only and strictly on MY usernames on the computer and laptop. No one can get on to my laptop without my permission, and the computer, no one knows my user-password.

Yikes. I've had that happen to me before, and it feels like your privacy is completely gone.

Anyways, check your computer for viruses like spyware and such. That's how some hacker a while back got a hold of a bunch of my passwords. If you find any, try to have your anti-virus program remove them. If it can't, then simply call someone up who will know what to do. Also, keep resetting those passwords.

That's all I really have to say.

A hacker grabbing a bunch of passwords is nothing. Back when we only had dial-up to access the interwebs, some hacker took my computer hostage while I was using it.

Luckily, he explained in pop-ups where to find and delete the spyware that made it possible. Shocked

Are you sure Becca, that it wasn't your friends or family? I have and could probably figure out a few people's passwords.

lol what Andy, a friendly hacker?

You think that's bad?

My Gmail account has recently been used in CHINA. It turns out 'I' sent spam promos to everyone I know.

Oh ****, I forgot. Earlier (yesterday now) when Jakey was going stuff to my netbook a couple of warnings came up with a program called 'Hackertool'. He said it was nothing when I said to do scans. I'm doing one now, mainly because of the warnings I saw and not the MSN-thing, but it's not 'til now did I connect the two together.

Ark- Lol, lucky.. My Dad did something similar to us, but without telling us.

Saki- I honestly doubt it.. The only person who can guess my passwords is my sister and Jakey. My sister was too busy with her own stuff and I know she wouldn't mess around with my stuff - if she did I'd ban her from my laptop, and she already seems quite attached to it. Jakey, he knows I had a bad day yesterday, and I think the last thing he'd do is purposely **** me off again.

Lum- It's not a competition.

I know, it's just that I'm starting to think that everyone's gonna get hacked soon. It's possible that we accidentally downloaded spyware from a common site.. study

But the program I found on my computer was called HaxCam, so probably not.
