gmail and facebook accounts hacked

Question: gmail and facebook accounts hacked

My gmail account got hacked. Offenders changed my pw, alternate email address, and deleted my contacts. They sent email out to all the contacts saying that I was stranded in the UK without money and asking for contacts to respond to arrange to send $2000.00. Offenders changed settings so that response email would be forwarded to their account. Friends who got these fraudulent emails called and alerted me and I contacted gmail and reset the alternate email address so they could send me a link to reset pw. Upon regaining access I discovered the extent of compromise.
I also rec'd email from facebook that my account with them has been breached. I still have not regained access to that.
I had Norton360 v 3.0 running on my computer the whole time. I have scanned my computer with it then with Norton 360 v 4.0 and with Trend Micro and no virus or malware is detectable. How did my account get hacked?????

Preferred Solution: gmail and facebook accounts hacked

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: gmail and facebook accounts hacked

Norton is mainly an antivirus product, maybe they include anti-spyware too now, not sure. There are many ways to steal access to your gmail. One of the ways is to install a keylogger on your pc, and steal username and passwords as you type them. But if you have accessed your gmail from another computer, like at university; public library, your friend's PC etc, then it may be that those computers are infected and not yours. Also, it may not be a technical attack. Simply being able to look over your shoulder as you enter the passwords will get you hacked just as easily. Then, there are whats called brute force attacks, where a program simply points to a login page, and tries each combination in sequence till it hits the right one. Gmail may not fall to brute force attacks, but if you use the same password on multiple sites, then there is a chance that they hacked that account first and tried to use the same password on gmail. Then there may have been phishing attempts made at your account and you mistakenly entered your password into a web site that only looks like Gmail. There should be more ways to steal your gmail, but I am not a hacker.

If you are running Trend Micro along with Norton, you might end up with them interferring with each other. You cannot run multiple real-time antivirus products together.

When you reset your Gmail, use a complex passphrase that is easy to remember. Eg. The phrase "Kirk is the rightful captain of the USS Enterprise" can be transformed into "kitrcotusse". Throw in a number and that becomes "kitrc999otusse". Adding a symbol like "&" and using mixed case will help too. The key thing to making brute force attempts harder is making the passphrase longer and not using dictionary words. Also when selecting the security question, just treat it as another passphrase, and avoid things other people can get to know, like things published on Facebook.

how do people hack facebook accounts ...im talking from a technical level now
and how do they get into the email from there and change the password?
as your email password isnt in your facebook details is it?

if a facebook acc has been hacked, and the gmail / hotmail acc...is there any hope?
 

Answer:Hacked facebook accounts

Well you aren't going to find a tutorial here!
I can think of two methods of getting a password for any site. The first is to write a piece of malware with a keylogger component to steal your password as you type it or from where it's saved; if that's the main attack then the same botnets that spam through email will probably be responsible for spamming through your Facebook. To stay safe you simply have to keep your computer free from infection.
The second is to use a phishing email which tricks people into going to your own lookalike and handing over the password and username blithely unaware of the trickery. A related approach is to create some other site that requires registration with an email and password; far too many people use the same password on all their online accounts and such a site then owns their email, facebook, etc. To stay safe here a bit of common sense is required. Check that links in emails and on the web go where they say they go, be careful what you sign up with, use different passwords for different accounts, and don't assume that anything was sent by a "nice/smart" person who wouldn't do something like that.
There may be other approaches, but I'm not aware of them.

As to recovering from a hack, most sites have a system in place to get it back.

Gmail accounts hacked via unpatched hole

By Scott Spanbauer

Exploits allowing hackers to break into Gmail accounts are likely to occur, if they're not already circulating, after security researchers released details of a hole that Google has reportedly declined to patch.

There are steps you can take to reduce the risk of using a webmail account, but it appears that the usual tricks won't solve the Gmail problem until Google fixes the software.

The weakness that researchers say afflicts Gmail, a free e-mail service hosted by Google, belongs to a class of attacks known as cross-site request forgery (CSRF, pronounced "sea surf").

Besides Gmail, CSRF holes affecting YouTube, Netflix, and NYTimes.com have also been found and repaired in the past. CSRF attacks use security flaws in cookies, password requests, and other interactive Web components to intercept communications between your browser and a Web site's server.

The first report of the Gmail problem within security circles was written by Vicente Aguilera Díaz of Internet Security Auditors (ISA) on July 30, 2007. The next day, ISA issued an alert and included a proof of concept illustrating how the exploit could be used to change a Gmail account password.

After more than a year during which, according to ISA, Google was repeatedly contacted privately about the problem researchers publicly released a detailed description of the exploit on March 3, 2009, according to a Secure Compu... Read more

Hi,

I need help! This started a little while ago, less maliciously, on my other computer. Evenutally I allowed AVG to remove all the threats it found and it completely messed up that computer (as yet undealt with and presently unable to even enable the wireless connection). On this computer (which was networked to the other one), occasionally a Google link would open as a page I hadn't clicked on and I would have some sort of AVG warning or a Yahoo! Error page. Then other sites started coming up (a whole pile of different sites), but I figure they were just bad links. Then, a few days ago, my gmail password was reset and I was temporarily unable to access my account (I had Google help me with it). I didn't consider a trojan or malware or anything, yet (I'm not a techie, and I figured my three protection programs would have caught it). Then the Google links problem started happening much more often and with links I new were good (like nhl.com, bbc.com, etc). At the same time these links started popping up as new windows or sometimes new tabs, even though I wasn't opening them in new windows or tabs. That's when I realized I was infected. I ran scans with AVG Free 11, AdAware, and Spybot S&D, and found nothing. I started searching for solutions online, and found your forum and others. I download HitmanPro 3.5, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes Anti Malware. I ran the first two and found and deleted some tracking cookies. Malwarebytes wouldn'... Read more

Over the past 3 weeks my battle.net and gmail accounts have been hacked on 2 major occasions. The first time the hacker seemed to always know my passwords after i changed them and i was engaged in a 30 minute battle of change-the-password before the hacker attached an authenticator to my account and locked me out. I then had to contact Blizzard to restore my account. After that i installed AVG and removed 4 infections and thought myself safe but last week i got hacked again when i was out, i didn't leave my pc on so he must have gotten my passwords earlier.I tried running DDS but it just quits and doesn't give me the logs. Tried GMER twice but both times my pc BSOD'd.

Question: Gmail hacked

Hello, I hope I am just being paranoid but on Aug. 1st I couldn't access my gmail account for three days. And when I finally was able I got a meesage saying my account may have been comprimised. I scolled down to the bottom of the Gmail page where you can see past ip addy's your account has been accessed from and one or two were unknown to me and google. I immediately changed all my passwords and thought I was ok.

Tcpview log looks clean. Red highlighted entries are just connections that are being closed. They do not necessarily indicate anything bad.

Question: Gmail Hacked?

My Gmail account was temporarily disabled after a "suspicious" login occurred. The login was through a Windows computer, which I don't have, so evidently something was wrong. I changed my password after re-activating th account. However, my email address is no longer displayed at [email protected] but [email protected] with no period separating. Also, when I send emails the address that I am sending from (and what people see) says "Match.com". I have absolutely no idea how to fix this short of deleting my whole account (which I don't really want to do).

Answer:Gmail Hacked

Don't know how your email was hacked, but I will offer some advice from personal experience:Check all of your online activity -- especially anything associated with financials like your banking and credit card accounts. Immediately change the password to your online bank account and credit card access and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft.If you are in the United States, you can easily put a 90 day fraud alert on your social security number. You may think this is being a bit melodramatic and over the top, but I assure you that if someone accessed your email and it was linked to recruitment sites, whoever did this could possibly have access to all that is needed to steal your identity.Go to: Experian. At the bottom of the page under the Additional Products & Services section - Credit Report Assistance, click on Fraud Alert. This will bring you to a page where your first option will be to click on Initial Security Alert (90 days). Click on that link. It's a secure site. Once you fill out that information, your information will be provided to TransUnion and Equifax (the other two credit bureaus). You can then print out a credit report if you wish. This 90 day alert can be renewed every 90 days forever if you desire.Be proactive. If someone has accessed any of your personal information, don't let them walk away with any more of it. You may think I'm an alarmist, but ask anyone who has had their identity stolen and they'll tell you that it all ... Read more

Question: hacked gmail

If I have posed this in the wrong place, advice as to where to post it is welcome.

My gmail account was hacked. I advised gmail they cancelled it, I went through the process to get back the account name with a new password. Today, gmail returned an email that I never wrote as undeliverable leading me to believe that my account is still being used by someone. The gmail account is attached to many things including my blog, so I would like to keep the name.

However, it seems I still have the problem and don't know what to do.

Can anyone offer advice?

Answer:hacked gmail

This does not necessarily mean someone has hacked into your account. You can log in to Gmail and go to sent items and see if that specific email was sent from your account (although this is not a foolproof method). You can also see at the bottom of the Gmail screen when your last activity was.
For interest sake anybody can set up their email account but use your Gmail address as the "reply to" address. In fact this is what a lot of spammers and bots do. The spammer can then send unsolicited email to people and the recipients think the emails come from you.

My wife is having some abnormal issues with a few things regarding her computer, and I was hoping someone here might have a little insight and a few tips.

Earlier last month, her Myspace account was hacked into. This isn’t a big deal. It happens a lot, and she doesn’t have any sort of financial information on there. The biggest worry is how someone got her password. Then, earlier this week, she got an email from eBay, which stated the following:

”It appears your account was accessed by an unauthorized third party and used to send unsolicited emails to other community members, including email offers to sell items outside of eBay. It does not appear that your account was used to list or bid on any items. Additionally, the email address on your account may have been tampered with, which is why you may not have received any emails about this activity.

At this time we have taken several steps to secure your eBay account. Rest assured that your credit card and banking information is safe on the eBay site. This information is kept encrypted on a secure server and cannot be viewed by anyone."

Fast-forward to today, and she got an email from PayPal:

"You are signed up for PayPal's daily updating service for auction listings with PayPal logos for eBay.

During our last update, your eBay User ID, ****, and password were denied as invalid by eBay. Therefore, your listings were not updated with PayPal logos."

This “daily updating service” ... Read more

Answer:Hacked accounts....

Did she use the same password for her other accounts that were compromised?

What programs did your AV software remove?

When you tell Windows to remember your username/password, it stores them in an area called "Protected Storage" It is not uncommon for attackers to pillage the data stored there which often results in them gaining important passwords. So if it wasn't a key logger, the attacker may of gotten access through Protected Storage. Either way the computer she uses to login to those sites may be compromised.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I would cancel my credit card and paypal bank account if you're sure they are compromised. A long with changing my passwords and posting on security-forums.com which might be able to help you the best.

Hi my laptop recently died, and in the interim I borrowed my fathers laptop so I could keep up with my college assignments. But I have noticed something weird when I try and login to various sites I'm a member of. One of the sites is facebook, and the other is a paid subscription members only weightlifting forum. When I click on the login name boxes for these two sites, before I enter my email a drop-down box appears with my previous login details, but there is also another email that always appears. [email protected]. When I googled this email to try and find out what is happening I found a twitter account with the same email address, and the owner seems to have reported that her twitter has been hacked. https://twitter.com/caT_XXXXX

Answer:Has someone hacked my accounts?

If you are seeing a email account on the login account drop down, and that is not yours, it just means that that email was also used on your machine to access that site. Most of the times those email addresses used to login to the site are stored as cookies on your machine. Try clearing cookies and see if that email still appears.

Yesterday I went to sign on to my computer and it would not accpet my XP password. I tried it sevral times and ensured I didnt have caps lock and did have num lock on. I'm not at all a computer beginner. I know I typed it correctly.

I then re-booted and tried again - same problem.

I then shut down and powered off, then booted back up and then the accounts listed had changed to Administrator, and my name. This was different than what I had before - which listed no Admin account. I had changed the Admin account to my name, then had another non-admin account, then an account for my dauighter.

Later I booted into safe mode with network support and was able to sign on as Administrator. I ran CleanUp, AdAware, & Spybot. AdAware turned up only cookies and Spybot had one item whyich said something about a Registry change which would prevent Windows Security center from advising me that the firewall had been turned off.

I tried to run my anti-virus program _ Trend PC-Cillin, but it would start to initialize, then shutdown. I then tried to run several on-line scans (Trend Housecall, Panda, etc), but could not in either Firefox or IE because Java was not turned on or something like that. I was able to run Symantec's scan, which turned up nothing.

I was talking with the IT guy at work this morning and he thinks I might have been hacked.

Any ideas on how to begin to resolve this? Also, how might I determiine if I've... Read more

I hope I can explain this well enough to get help.
I'm running Vista with all updates and Trend Micro . All are updates and scans are run.

I have a few accounts where I do surveys. They require a log in and password. I have changed passwords and email addresses on the affected accounts. I use a Dell desktop and no one but me is ever near it.

Someone has been going into these survey accounts and doing surveys with bad answers forcing me to be dropped from the groups. Also, where I have earned points they have redeemed them. They never take anything for themselves, they donate them or have something silly sent to me.

I have also has passwords changed on my Yahoo and AOL accounts where the passwords were strong.

A Trend scan shows no problems. I used to use Symantec before I had trend Micro and still had the problem.

I ran the recommended programs and the details follow. I had trouble with GMER. It would run when I clicked on it. When I unchecked the boxes as instructed , and clicked scan nothing happens. It does not scan.

Here is what I have from the runs , please help. I've tried everything I know but this is way out of my league. Seems like someone can go into my accounts no matter the password and act as me.

Answer:My accounts are being hacked please help

Hello gerys,

I'm not seeing anything in these logs. Let's see if an online scan reveals anything for us.

**Vista users - right click the IE icon and Run as Adminstrator

Using Internet Explorer or Firefox, visit http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/par...avwebscan.html

1. Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.


2. To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:Close any open programs
Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

3. Click Run at the Security prompt. The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database. Please be patient as this can take several minutes.Once the update is complete, click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.
Click View scan report at the bottom.

Hi All at Bleepingcomputer

I've been hacked.
Both Facebook and gmail have warned me themselves - FB said a south korean IP gained access and gmail said a US IP gained access.
I've changed passwords everywhere, but they managed to empty my battle.net wow account first for around 100.000 wow gold, sigh.

I think they still have access to my PC and possibly keylogging my new passwords.

I've read the forum introduction and saved a tcpview.txt file and I also got a hijackthis logfile ready.
What do I do now?

Question: Facebook Hacked

A friend of mine's Facebook account has been hacked. I've advised him to change his password but he doesn't. Anyway, that's his problem.

I have some other friends who communicate with him via Facebook. Would it be advisable for us to avoid interacting with him until his account is secure again? Can it cause us any problems?
 

Answer:Facebook Hacked

It would be advisable to use Bitdefender app for Facebook to scan your profiles, and tighten up your security settings. You can change your friend's updates on your facebook, by setting for "Only Important", by clicking on the arrow to the right of the person's name, when you are viewing your newsfeed.

Hi
My Facebook and Twitter profile have continually been hacked. By this I mean some info was changed, then info and posts were deleted. Then i kept on receiving emails from FB which actually came from 'facebookmail' to change my password. (The mails were exactly FB's design and said FB, however when I went to 'view address' it said 'facebookmail". I went directly onto FB and changed my password several times. Following this I found that someone had added their email addresses into my admin page on my FB profile. I deleted their admin email addresses and re-changed my password. Then ALL my friends and work profiles and work pages on FB were deleted. Most posts and info on My Twitter profile were deleted too. There is/was a link between posts for FB and twitter. I have tried to recreate my FB profile, but I keep getting emails from 'facebookmail' asking me to recreate my passwords etc.

I have tried to redo my profile but it wont let me add new friends.

I have checked for viruses using AVG etc. I work from both my PC (Vista) as well as HP laptop. I have contacted FB directly but they have not been of any assistance.

Do you think that this could be a private person or a virus or both?

What is the best way to recreate and maintain secure Social Networking profiles on FB and twitter?

Would it work to recreate new profiles with a different email address? If it is a virus then that could affect the new profiles too??

I use Googlemail for my email address. Today I received an email from myself but copied to practically everybody in my address book. Presumably this means that my email account has been hacked so I have immediately changed the password. However, as my password was already a mixture of numbers, lower case letters, upper case letters and symbols, whoever got hold of it is unlikely to have just had a lucky guess. Is it possible that a batch of passwords has been stolen or have I just been unlucky?

Answer:Have Gmail passwords been hacked?

I doubt that your Gmail password was hacked by brute force because it's very strong and Gmail should have blocked your account after multiple failed login attempts.
The most prevalent method to harvest login credentials is via an email supposedly sent to you from a friend or colleague who has already been hacked. You receive an email and assume it was sent by them and the email has a link that says something like "click here to view the photos/documents". You click on it and it asks for your email address and password. Because you know and trust the person who sent the email you happily enter those details.

I was wondering if you would mind helping me (I am very anxious for my problem)Today on a computer (without any especial AntiVirus) which is in a public place for everyone I checked my Gmail account by IE and I received a bunch of strange emails. by opening of one of them I was diverted to another person's email and then when I tried to sign in with my username, gmail said you are trying to use your old password. you password has been changed for 33 days. So I was frustrated because even I did not know the security questions; I could not sign in for around 2-3 hours and after that when I tried my password (This time in my personal Computer with ESET Smart security) I could sin in; once I signed in, I changed my password and now I would like to know whether this email address is safe anymore or not? Can I still use this email address knowing I have changed my password? Also I would like to know whether there is a risk of getting a keylogger after being hacked? Is keylogger installed on the system or email? When I got hacked I was with a public computer, so this means that if any keyloggers have been installed, they have been installed in that public computer? Right?and Now that I'm using the email address in my personal computer there is no risk of having a keylogger?

U can make your e-mail safe again by using google's Two step verification process which makes ur account very secure even in public places as it generates random numbers and sends SMS to ur regestered mobile no.Now getting to antivirus ESET is one of the best available in market but if u want more security then it would be better to for BIT defender or Norton 360 .

This past summer in May, I had my Battle.net account hacked and they had also gotten the registered e-mail information and kept changing the password. I contacted Blizzard and had the email changed and password changed and then ran AVG antivirus (free) as well as Malware Bytes. It found quite a bit and removed everything but it seems it has happened again. My gmail account was hacked and this morning woke up to a changed password and mass spamming of all my contacts with an email advertising something. I ran Malware again and it found 1 file and AVG found nothing. I also per recommendation downloaded Comodo Firewall. Just wanted to get some "professional" help to make sure I'm clean and what I can do in the future to prevent this. Thanks for your help!

Hi

I logged on to my Gmail account this morning, and found that the vacation setting was on. I thought this was strange, as I hadn't set it, so I opened the settings and found that it was set to send some dodgy mail to anyone who wrote to me, inviting them to meet online and sending a link to some pics (obviously, I didn't click this link).

Then I checked my sent messages to see how many people it had been sent to, and found that not only had it been sent to people who wrote to me during the night, but also that a different mail had been sent to a whole list of people whose addresses were all very similar:
pers-(then some letters and numbers)@craigslist.org

The mail said only "heyy, i think we can fill each others ad " - with no link. One person actually replied to this wanting to meet up!!!

The subjects headings were replies, like "Re: Fun witty guy Looking - 26 (Central Point)" or "Re: anyone real? - 19", suggesting that they might be replies to dating posts.

I do not look at Craigslist.org, and have not looked at any dating posts anywhere.

How has this happened from my email address, and how safe am I now? It seems to be back to normal now.....

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Answer:Has my Gmail account been hacked??

To read: http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/586...B4eB3JLpcFLZA5

E-mail spoofing

A feature of the protocol that email is based upon is that the email message itself has a number of spaces (data fields) for information like the "intended recipient", "sender's email address" and the "return email address", "CC", "BCC", etc etc. within the email datagram (think of email like a picture postcard with spaces for the sender name and address as well as name and address of the person it is being sent to).

What someone has done (or rather set up a piece of software to do) is send a spam email to so many million email addresses with the sender's FROM email address set to be the same as the "intended recipient's" TO email address. This is done for two main reasons, partly to try to get past email spam filters that filter on known spammer's FROM addresses (or email domains) and partly to hook your interest in getting an email from yourself - which it achieved.

So the spammer is not sending spam email from your email account (that is - they are not hacking into your account and typing messages), but simply using your email address to send spam email to you. Just as if you had got a picture postcard through the post addressed to you with the offer of cheap Viagra but was signed with your name.
You can also try a program like MailWasher.

Hey,

About six weeks ago, both my Gmail and WoW accounts were hacked. I recovered my accounts and changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran Avast, Malwarebytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials. They found a few viruses and they were deleted, and I received no more trouble.

However, just a few days ago my Gmail and WoW account were hacked again. I once again recovered my accounts, changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran the same three anti-viruses. This time, however, they didn't find any viruses.

I very strongly doubt that someone got a hold of my passwords because a) no one knows my passwords, and I change them regularly, and b) the accounts were accessed from China both times (and I live in Canada). Both times, the hacker changed my passwords, and despite having access to a lot of other information, only used my WoW account to sell in-game items.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in helping me find what I assume is some sort of keylogger. Thanks!

Answer:Someone has hacked all contacts on Gmail and

Hacking Internet email accounts has nothing to do with your PC or type of machine. Opening emails from unknown sources is potentially dangerous to anyone. Chances are someone has either guessed or found your passwords to these sites. Logging on and changing the passwords may re-secure those accounts. If they have changed the password, you may need to send lots of emails to prove you're the original owner. Worse case, you have to create new accounts. " I do not belong to NETLOG" ...your account does, now....If you run into a problem, post it. Someone will give you insight to the problem.

Hi!
My android phone suddenly lost all network connection.
When I came home in two hours time and tried to log into my gmail, I got message: your password has been changed. I managed to log in and change password to a new one.
I saw the recovery email was changed to some unknown to me; which I briefly changed back.
I also saw that this activity was from somewhere London (I live near London, but for my activity gmail shows my town).
No emails in inbox and in sent folder, but in trash bin I saw two emails from Vodafone: (1) we got your call that you lost your phone and we blocked your phone (2) we got your call for swapping your SIM card.
I called Vodavone and cancelled all this.
Once I got my SIM unblocked, I change gmail authentication to 2-step.
I realize that my gmail was hacked because I use it for about 10 years without changing password and I used same password very long ago on some other sites :( I also find my email was leaked when LinkedIn was hacked and my home address and phone could be available to hackers.
My question is what to expect next?
It is very difficult to find any information on my gmail, because first, I write to myself tons of very long emails and if I search words like 'bank' it brings hundreds pages of results; second, I try to keep all sensible information using hints known only to myself.

I was unfortunate enough to have my personal Google gmail account hacked this morning by one of these spammers that resets your password and then sends an email to everyone in the address book that you've been robbed in London and need the recipient to wire money so you can make it home. I haven't been able to access the account and I guess it is gone for good because Google keeps rejecting my account recovery pages. So far, apart from the damage to my pride, nothing seems amiss. I have some annoyed and some amused customers contacting me but my main concern is is the damage limited solely to Google? I don't have a keylogger or anything like that do I? How would I know? Is there any way I can get back into that account without Google's help? I've been changing passwords and usernames all day but I'm paranoid that I've forgotten something. As an extra precaution I reset my computer to a clean restore point before all of this happened. Any help/encouragement is definitely appreciated.

I have two World of Warcraft accounts. The other night one of them got hacked, and Blizzard has already restored all the stuff I lost. Then today, my other account got hacked, and fortunately Blizzard must have noticed something was up because I got a temporary 24 hour lockout, for my own protection, before anything bad happened.

I need to figure out how the hacker is getting my account information. I use 2 different computers. After the first account got hacked, I scanned the computer I was on and found a trojan, which I removed. But then the other account was hacked today, even after I had removed that trojan and changed the passwords to both accounts.

Somehow they got my new password. I have installed AVG, ZoneAlarm, and HijackThis on both computers, and since getting ZoneAlarm I realized that SpeeditupFree and PCCheckup are bad, bad things. So I got rid of them.. could that have been it? PCCheckup was trying to access the internet from the moment I booted up the computer.

Alright, a few days ago my PayPal account got hacked into. I am on a brand new computer and I will admit that I have not fully set it up yet. It is completely possible that I somehow got a keylogger.
PayPal is currently investigating the unauthorized activity, and they have already refunding the majority of my lost funds. However, if I do in fact have a keylogger, I want to get it off of my computer.

I am somewhat doubtful that it was a keylogger, because it seems that ONLY my PayPal account has been accessed. Of course I could be wrong, but nothing else was changed, and my online banking account was not accessed (as far as I know).

I admit that my password was not the best password ever, and it could have been guessed fairly easily (It was related to a username that I use on several forums). I deal with a lot of people online through PayPal, so many people would know my PayPal address.

So I am just wondering if you think that this is a keylogger or not. If it is, how can I remove it?
Is it true that keyloggers can be installed as add-ons to programs, so they actually wouldn't show up in processes?

Also, is there any antivirus program, free or paid, that could help me with this? I currently have AVG free and Spybot:S&D, and I also have a 60 day trial of Norton 360, which came with my computer.

For now I am just using an on-screen keyboard to imput important passwords.

Hello I'm totally new to the forums I'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right section sorry. (advised to come here by blizzard)
 
Here's some information on what has happened;
 
I had a text message from Blizzard stating that a security feature has been added to my battle.net account, which I did not add, I then discovered that my account had been compromised. So I full system restored my computer to factory default settings (Acer aspire 5332). I contacted blizzard and they changed my email for me (after I restored my computer), I specifically created a new email for my battle.net account. Everything seemed good as I could login to my battle.net account. Today I tried to log into the new email that I had created to find that the password had been changed on the new email including my partners email address, which took the whole situation to a new level because my partners email has sensitive and personal information in it. I am also concerned as to what other information this hacker has of mine and my partners. I have no idea why a full system restore to factory default settings has failed but I am determined to get this virus off my computer so here is a list of what I have tried thus far:
 
AVG antivirus- full scan nothing found
Adaware pro - full scan nothing found
Superantispyware- full scan nothing found

Answer:Help please, Email accounts hacked

who is the provider of your email account? is this webmail, or exchange? Also, do you have a secondary account linked to either of these accounts? have you contacted the security team for the email account provider yet to let them know of this issue? Let me know, and also, I would highly suggest looking into an application called keypass (http://keepass.info/) a great application to keep passwords secure.

How is "Guccifer" getting into so many prominent persons' email accounts?

I'm surprised how often this continues to happen. I've assumed it's via either guessing passwords (Password: "password") or guessing reset information (or finding it through publicly available info).

But even then, I still don't understand how accounts seem to be so easily hacked with "guesses" (if that's how the majority of these takeovers are happening) -- I'd expect the major email carriers to quickly block out more than a handful of wrong attempts, and if continued, ban IP addresses. Sure, there'd be ways around this through VPN's, proxies, automation, etc., but I'd still expect some form of authoritative quashing of such attempts.

It's been my understanding that the most prevalent methods are:

-Password guessing
-Security-reset information guessing
-Rogue links (w/ Java vulnerabilities)
-Trick emails ("Please respond with password for verification")

Any insight on how it keeps happening?

EDIT (forgot to include what sourced my question):

Answer:Seriously, how are all these email accounts getting hacked?

I've always wondered about this too, you hear so much about people's email and facebook etc being hacked. I run my own email server so it always concerns me as I wonder if I may potentially have the same security holes in mine.

Hello TechGuy people,

We believe we have the same issue with keylogger and potentially other hacking methods but we are in the process of fixing the issue: swapping hard drives. I have been to the public library in order to try to get away from it in order to change passwords, etc. You know, do my computer stuff on a "free and clear" system. I noticed on two different computers that when I log into my Hotmail that a certain set of suspicious foreign IPs establish connection. At this time, I'm not looking to just delete the account. I would like to know if it is possible to have something implanted in my email account (e.g. if I delete all the emails in my account, will the suspected virus be eradicated?). And if it's possible to have something that is activated when I log in so it can gain access to that computer? If these are possible then I could hire a more tech saavy person to log into my email and they can view this foreign IP activity on their system or if they can do investigative work on it. It's important for what we're doing with our computers.

Thanks for reading and for your help!

A user in a game room in Yahoo said they were going to delete my girlfriend's account. Within 10 minutes he was able to change her password. I used the password reset on the Yahoo site on a different computer and then changed it. I changed it to an 18 character alpha numeric password. Within 5 minutes, it was changed. The guy doing all of this said he was using a freely available program. He was able to figure out her birthday and security question. Contacting Yahoo has been less than effective. Is there anything I can do?

She also created a different account, but he already changed the password on that one as well.

is it possible to format my pc with windows 7 as i did not receive a boot disc for it, i had to create 3 rescue discs when i started the system from new are these the discs i need to format my pc as i have a hacker attack all my accounts and i am getting a new email address aas well as router and more sercurity into the system i have but do i need to format my pc to rid any info on it as this might give the hacker a second chance.please advise thank you.

Answer:windows 7 and accounts hacked

Formatting and reinstalling is a good idea if you believe you have been hacked, however, you say you don't have a Reinstall disc. Formatting=Erase, So you would need to install an Operating System after you format. Before you format, try your Rescue discs on another HDD or computer so you know they boot and work and can restore your system

Sir/Madam
My emails xxxxxxx, xxxxxxx, xxxxxxxx were all hacked. The hacker can access all my accounts and sends abusive messages to my friends.
I joined a dating site and he is still able to block my friends and changes my pw everytime. Please help me how to have privacy. I created several email accounts hoping that he will not be able to access it but he is still able to get through my accounts.
 

Answer:Hacked email accounts

For one thing, you should never post your email addresses on a public forum or anywhere else on the Internet as they will be harvested by spammers so I've edited them out.

If you change the password and then this person can change it again then you must have a keylogger or other type of malware installed on your machine that is reading keystrokes.

The only way to be sure to be secure would be to back up your important things like documents, photos, music, etc. and reformat the machine and reload Windows then change all passwords from the clean machine.

Twitter Accounts Hacked Again

It seems a bunch of Twitter accounts have been hacked and are now churning out a steady stream of useless spam. Wait, how is this different from normal Twitter accounts? Kinda makes you wonder how anyone ever noticed.

Our source counts over 200 rogue tweets so far tonight. It?s not just new users getting caught out: famous tech pundit John C. Dvorak (@therealdvorak) got caught up in the attack, and was none too pleased.

TeamViewer is a remote desktop connection software that allows users to share screens and allow remote access from anywhere in the world. In the past 24 hours, many customers have claimed their computers were maliciously accessed by hackers. Hackers are accessing the computers late at night, out of standard USA working hours, and accessing bank accounts using saved browser passwords, or installing forms of ransomware. As of 12 p.m. Wednesday, the TeamViewer website remains offline, with their Twitter being the only form of comment so far from the company.

Hello,

I'm a regular Facebook user and this morning, I when I logged onto facebook, a funny surprise awaited...
During the night, apparently, someone posted massively on all my friends walls including my own, this lovely spam:

Martin posted something on your Wall and wrote:

"yikes) thought you might like reading this woman's weight loss blog http://www.facebook.com/l/a40e0;faceboo ? .com"

"Remember to clean your colon out smile http://www.facebook.com/l/a40e0;faceboo ? .com"

"I wonder how this woman lost so much weight so fast? those products must really work her blog http://www.facebook.com/l/a40e0;faceboo ? .com"

and several other messages of the same type.

How is this possible?

It has happened to a few other users already, if you type "facebookhealth4.com" as a keyword in google, you'll find a swedish user that had the same problem and a post on the wall of the Rio 2016 games on facebook.

So on Tuesday I went on my facebook to discover that my notifications weren't working probably with a lot of them just taking me to the person's page instead of the actual post. Then I found a bunch of facebook ads show up even though adblock was installed and kept them out till that point including suggested video showing up on top of posts from pages when they shared someone else's video. I'm wondering if someone hacked into it or not even though I didn't get the message that someone hacked into my account on neither of my associated emails. I thought that you were supposed to get a message when something like that happened. And my whole newsfeed is messed up too. I changed my password around just in case though.

So basically some guy knows my password he is in Japan I am in Australia so luckily thanks to Facebooks security systems he cant access my account at all even though he knows my password because he has to go through some tests that only I could pass (Facebook does this cause it recognises that Im suddenly signing in from Japan which is rather strange).

But it is really annoying cause I keep getting signed out and I cant access facebook on my Ipod and stuff and basically I've run a anti virus test with Avira Anti Virus Free, MalwareBytes, Im using Online Armor Firewall and it still hasnt stopped... and yes I keep changing my password so somehow the hacker keeps getting it.

Ok, so I screwed up. I was in facebook and added someone I thought was a friend. Then, to make it worse, we were chatting and I was distracted and I clicked on a link they sent. Then all hell broke loose. Within a few minutes, my facebook pw had been changed. Then my email (hotmail) pw was changed. This was on Weds 3/9/2011. I ran through everything in the Malware section and jumped through hoops to get facebook and email back. I thought everything was ok until a couple days later (3/13/2011), and all the passwords got switched again. I had deleted the person, so I'm not sure what's going on, whether it's my computer or how they got the passwords the second time. I tried going through the browser redirect section and didn't seem to work. Also reset router, in case that was it. So, I went through the malware section again. These logs are from the second time, hopefully that's not a problem. I have windows 7, 64 bit. I have another computer with Vista on in and it seems to be acting funny too, but I'm not sure if there's a problem or I'm paranoid now. Please help!

It is about a year that my facebook pages & yahoo emails have been hacked.. I have found that facebook page had sessions from a wrong address but right browser. In addition in one of facebook pages igoogle apps have been added. I have been offered friends directly from my yahoo email contacts & a few days ago after I deleted my facebook pages a few communication emails with facebook (incl. offered friend) have been erased from my email address & I hardly use the email address which was half frozen.
The password of yahoo emails had to be changed extremely often because I couldn’t get the signing window with the security seal. In addition when I typed on firefox the email ulr it has been changed to another ulr & I received the wrong signing window. Chrome couldn’t find such ulr.
2 months ago I booted my computer to factory state, but everything has returned. I have run daily scans by McAfee which few days ago first time found & deactivated almost 200 trojans/cookies. Windows Defender also quarantined a few programs.

Hi. My friend's facebook account was hacked recently, it was a quite nasty attack by someone who clearly knows us personally. He was blocked out and regained access several times over the space of a month. Finally they got in and started posting malicious messages, changing details and mailing and chatting with people, pretending to be him. He has now deactivated his accounts. There was abuse posted that mentioned me and I'd like to find out who it was, the whole situation has left us all feeling suspicious of everyone we know because it was clearly a "real" mutual friend and I don't feel secure online anymore. Any help with ideas to identify the hacker or tips to make my own account safer would be very gratefully received. B.

Hello MG,

First off, thanks for everything you do. I've been using your site for years for software downloads and appreciate your hard work.

This initially started about 2 to 3 weeks ago when my Facebook account was hacked and I had posted several links to malicious code to my friends through their wall. I thought I had everything cleaned up (never found a virus.) and was in the clear to receive a call this morning from a friend saying that my World of Warcraft account (Which hasn't been activated in over a year.) was online.

I called and got that straightened out over the phone.

What worries me is that I scan my computer often, because it is a shared computer, and never seem to find anything. Most of the tool recommended here are tools that I use on a weekly/bi-weekly basis.

I am using Windows 7 64-bit and I was using AVG 9.0. After so many negative results from AVG I decided to switch to Avira but it to is showing nothing on radar.

I skipped a few of your tools as my OS is 64-bit.

Here are the files from my scans. Everything came back negative from what I can tell but I'm sure I'm overlooking something. While running the batch file for your little package of tools one of the programs crashed. I had no other option than to end the process. It appears that the rest finished out fine.

Thanks ahead of time,

Lucid
 

Answer:Online Accounts Hacked/Modified

Your logs are clean, just a couple of non-malware related items to address now.

1. Please go to Add and Remove programs and uninstall the following software:


Java(TM) 6 Update 17

2. Now Copy the bold text below to notepad. Save it as fixME.reg to your desktop. Be sure the "Save as" type is set to "all files" Once you have saved it double click it and allow it to merge with the registry.




REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0}]Click to expand...


Make sure that you tell me if you receive a success message about adding the above
to the registry. If you do not get a success message, it definitely did not work.

3. Use Windows Explorer to locate and delete the following bold directories:


C:\ProgramData\avg9
C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG

4. Also delete all files in the below bold folders except ones from the current date (Windows will not let you delete the files from the current day).

C:\Windows\TEMP
C:\Users\jaq\Local Settings\TEMP

5. Now reboot your machine and install the most current and up to date version of Java available here at the below link:

Java Runtime 6

If you are not having any other malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:

I was using my computer when a message started popping up that Windows encountered a critical problem and will restart. After that, I couldn't get the computer to turn on so I ran it in safe mode. Eventually, I was able to scan my computer with Avast and it found Win32:Adware-gen[adw]. I got a blue screen and restarted my computer and went to the log. It deleted the virus, or at least it said it did. Later, my computer still would not turn on, so I did another scan and found NSIS:Bundlore-C. Avast deleted that also after another blue screen. After that, I tried to turn on my computer in normal mode and it would not turn on at all. The computer went to the welcome screen but weird symbols popped up. Now, on my friends laptop, it says I am online on Skype when another computer I was using had been off for a long time. On Minecraft, I tried to play but it said bad login, which usually means that that account is in use. Please help me and let me know if you think my accounts have been hacked and tell me what I should do.

For months now, I've been getting spam links to sites selling pills from dozens of people who have me in their address books. I'm sure I'm not the only one. There is usually no subject, and there's never any text, just a link. Obviously I never click on it. It's mostly from Yahoo addresses, but occasionally Gmail and AOL also.

Does anybody know the remedy for this? People get mad when I tell them they have a virus or their password has been hacked. Is there a name for this particular issue so that I can tell them exactly what to do when they say "but I have thus and so protection and it says I'm clean?" (Not every program catches every problem, is my answer, but I'd really like to be able to give them a name for this increasingly annoying issue.)

floridaze said:





Does anybody know the remedy for this?Click to expand...

In reality there a few possible type solutions depending on the infection your "friends" or you have.

Make sure that your PC is not the source. Some infections steal your address book and spoof your friends addresses in mail that is showing up when in it is actually coming from your account.
Have your friends fix their infection and it may stop.
If the infection is the kind that stole their address book, then you are already added to spam lists and the fix is to change your email address and not give it to these friends who cannot keep their PCs clean.
Just delete the spam when it arrives or possibly see if any particular spam filter can sort out the difference between valid email from your friends and the spam

Can anyone help me here? While at work on June 4th, I received a message from my hotmail account, from me, asking me to send money to London where I had been mugged. Of course I was not in London nor had I been mugged. I knew instantly that I had been hacked. I tried to log on to my hotmail email and the password had been changed by the hackers. I then went to my gmail account and sent a message to all contacts to disregard the hotmail email. Within a couple of minutes the hackers had taken over my gmail too.

I checked facebook and that has been taken over as well.

I then started frantically changing all my credit card password, bank and 401K passwords et al I also put a freeze on my credit.

I have since managed to recover the gmail account and changed the default email address to a new account I opened at yahoo.

My question is how can I get the hotmail and facebook account back under my control? I had iYogi scan my computer and no malware or virus was found so I think this is just the classic scam trying to trick people who know me into wiring money.

After much effort I did get a phone number for MSN and spoke to someone who told me because it is a free account they will give no support to it except for the online forum. I sent in the online forum form, but have not had any response to my pleas for help from facebook or hotmail.

Hi

It is about a year that my facebook pages & yahoo emails have been hacked.. I have found that facebook page had sessions from a wrong address but right browser. In addition in one of facebook pages igoogle apps have been added. I have been offered friends directly from my yahoo email contacts & a few days ago after I deleted my facebook pages a few communication emails with facebook (incl. offered friend) have been erased from my email address & I hardly use the email address which was half frozen.
The password of yahoo emails had to be changed extremely often because I couldn’t get the signing window with the security seal. In addition when I typed on firefox the email ulr it has been changed to another ulr & I received the wrong signing window. Chrome couldn’t find such ulr.
2 months ago I booted my computer to factory state, but everything has returned. I have run daily scans by McAfee which few days ago first time found & deactivated almost 200 trojans/cookies. Windows Defender also quarantined a few programs. In additions I have run scans by malware bytes, spy doctor, spy bot & agv but none have found malware.10bt malware fighter found windows registry, short cuts, privacy & junk files faulty.
How I get out of this mess?

Hey everyone. My Facebook and possibly my computer has been hacked and I am unable to fix it. I desperately need help. Yesterday I noticed on Facebook that my account had been reported for sending spam and nudity and I never did either of those things. First, I reformatted my computer and reinstalled from the recovery partition and I then recovered my Facebook account and while it was searching for ownership of the account it showed someone else plus myself which lead me to believe that my account has been hacked. This is not to mention the fact that my Facebook password in LastPass keeps getting changed to a single character. I changed my Facebook password and my LastPass password multiple times but the hacker still has access as I am still noticing my password getting changed in my LassPass. I would greatly appreciate help. I scanned with Malwarebytes and Super Antispyware but it didn't find anything but cookies. I should also note that I did have a Facebook app on my phone as well as a Facebook Messenger app. I use an Android phone. It's possible that the phone has been hacked too.

A warning being sent between Facebook users is causing an almighty scare, as it raises alarm that strangers might be able to access your profile.

The warning claims that entering your Privacy Settings on Facebook, and hunting for "Automation Labs" under Block Users, will display approximately 20 people you don't know.

A typical version of the warning reads as follows:






Quote:
All FB friends. This is important. Do this asap! Go to settings. Click on privacy settings. Click on block users. in the name box enter 'automation labs'. A list of approx 20 people you dont even know will come up. Block each one individually. These people have access to your facebook account/profile and spy on what You do!



And it's true, you will see about 20 names - however, it doesn't mean that they have any kind of special access to your Facebook profile and your security has not been breached as I explain in the following video:

Hello,
My gmail was hacked yesterday and a lot of emails were sent out in the space of half an hour (I found out it had happened when I checked my mail during that half hour) which were all - it appears - returned as spam. The person changed the sender name when he sent them out. I managed to change my security, making it much tighter, but I am somewhat paranoid about the mails (which looked to be encrypted to me, but not sure) to to nearly two thousand email addresses ending in .ru.
I considered that my email password was strong, but someone still managed to get in.
My big worry is that information about my credit card accounts, etc., was gathered, though there were no passwords or anything like that in my email account. I am in the process of changing passwords all over the place. Just very paranoid, and such a horrible feeling of someone getting into my account. Paranoid about all the encryption too.
Any suggestions as to what I should still do which I have not yet done (I have removed all the strange contacts, done two-step notification passwords, made a new account for banking only, told friends not to click on any strange links from me, and that's about it) will be much appreciated.

Answer:Gmail hacked - over 1800 emails sent out to Russia

I would do some general scans, and post a HJT log etc to the malware removal forum to check if you're infected with some kind of RAT / Keylogger. Change all passwords from a DIFFERENT computer if possible, try to make sure it's clean. Other than this I can't think of anything else you can do. Your mail was used to send emails that could be used for any purpose. I'd also create a new mail account, just incase.
