    How exactly they got the password to your email account?
    Do you click on some links? Or you have weak password?

    + for this. I'm very interested in ethical hacking (but I'm a good guy).

    I don't see how you got hacked. They contacted you through BHW and somehow got your gmail?

    Did you give them your password? Because I'd call that careless.
    Your post doesn't say jack about how you got hacked...

    And this is why you use two-factor authentication on Google.

    I have a feeling it was a keylogger that was somehow installed on his system.
    I told "shadowcat" (who acted as a go-between for sameer) to tell him to
    backup his important stuff, reformat his hard drive, and reinstall his operating
    system, which I assume (or hope) he did.

    If it's a keylogger on the system, the act of someone pretending to be a newbie and then ask him questions is not answering the primary question on why he got hacked.

    Yeah, I know. I haven't really discussed it with him since his account was reinstated.

    If you do create another gmail account make sure to activate two-factor authentication. Its very easy to setup and will protect you from getting hacked again.

    Let me explain you how my password was hacked

    There was not only one hacker but a group hackers who changed all my info in all the different paid as well as free sites within a minute.Everything was completely planned
    He was ready with my similar skype name ,paypal id and everything else

    A newbie from bhw contacted me asking me to provide a review to his website but i refused to open the link as i felt the link fishy
    After an hour another newbie contacted me on skype asking me a favour that he is too small(by age) and completely new to IM business so he dont have even a sim to create phone verified account.He needed me to verify his gmail account from my sim
    He provided me his BHW profile ,facebook profile his bank account number with all details for the proof
    As usual i thought of helping this guy too by providing the phone code which i got in my cell phone.I was completely unaware that he was actually resetting my gmail account.
    After few seconds i got a mail that there is some unusual activity in my gmail account so i change my password immediately in the next few seconds but it was too late
    When i tried to recover my password from my alternate email id and phone number i saw that both the 2 way verification process is disabled now.

    I dont think i was careless
    I was just trying to help a newbie like before who was looking to stand on his own feet


    Hope i had answered all your queries..

    Thanks
