    Hey guys, i need your help, my account got compromise, I dont know how the hacker did it, but he/she login my account, even my account is secured with 2 factor authentication, but the good thing is my coins is still intact, I got 100$ of coins in the account, maybe I am thinking that my account is so little to hack.
    But not only today, last 2-3 days also my facebook is also hacked but facebook is to smart, he block the hacker and automatically locked my account. Same day also my paypal is also compromise, paypal is also smart, paypal made my account locked.

    Can anyone can advice to me, what I am going to do?
    What I did is change my passwords everything connected to every accounts I have.
    and I also added 2FA to all of my email.
    And what I regularly do with my pc, is I clean my %temp% everyday and also clean my cokies and cache every week.
    I am very confuse right now, what do to, if my accounts are still secure.

    reinstall your operating system.
    in the clean system
    - change all your passwords
    - use strong passwords
    - use different passwords for every website
    - use 2F auth
    - encrypt all sensitive information before storing
    - watch for shitty browser plugins

    keep your software and OS up to date

    check if your phone is not compromised if you use your phone for 2FA don't root it, don't install shit, encrypt it.

    for shady stuff use a Virtual Machine.(use snapshots 1 click and you have a fresh system)

    if you must connect on public wifis or shitty networks, use VPN ALWAYS(private one pref) or a good public one

    if you are holding long you cryptos, store them on offline wallets, don't use exchange wallets for it
    pray xD

    If you want to be 100% sure it wont happen again, reset ALL of the PC's on your network, unroot your phone, change ALL passwords, and don't download shady shit. :)

    Ahoj!
    Another advise, bitch windows and install an updated linux distro. If you need to run windows software, use another machine with windows crap installed.. and never ever do anything serious from that machine. No, virtual machines won't work!!

    I live alone, and I dont even use public internet. I have decent internet connection which I am using alone.

    I am using Asus phone the OS is marshmallow 6.0.1 and its not rooted, I only have reliable application in my phone. No extra application, except steam app, i dont even have games on my phone.

    I would love to transfer OS, but the problem is linux OS is giving me headache, its not user friendly, and I cant install all my games. Thats why I stick on windows.

    Use Mint Linux which has almost everything you will need, except for the games ofcourse. This may also indicate that you got those viruses from game keygens may be?
    As I said, keep a windows pc/laptop if you ever need one. Do what you need to in there.. don't use the same machine for trading cryptocurrency ( or doing anything serious for that mater).
    As for budget, used laptops/pcs come very cheap.

    I am an advanced computer user and yeah.. I know my shit. Still, I hate windows. If windows 8 wasn't crappy enough, they released the spyware.. windows 10. Seriously, I have successfully bitched windows for almost a yr and no problems whatsoever in terms of production.

    I have everything I need in linux, including awesome code editors ( atom/netbeans and many more), vector editing software ( Inkscape), Raster editing software ( gimp), video editing software ( kdenlive), ftp clients ( filezilla and a lot more), SSH client ( by default), Office package ( I use google docs, but nothing stops you from using Libre office etc), virtual drive software (sshfs), pen testing softwares (much better support than windows) and many many more.. oh, and those are all free and open source!!

    Just tell me one reason to keep using windows spyware?

    who the fuck updated to windows 10 or even 8 :eek::eek:
    I agree, windows 8 and 10 suck. I'm still rocking that windows 7 and have never faced major issues. If you're using Linux and enjoying life, good for you! I'm not trying to convince you to go and buy the best windows PC around. Just saying that ALOT of users that use windows don't face any problems at all. You only hear about people with problems because whats the point of posting on a forum saying 'hey, i love windows. bye.'

    yeah you are correct. Actually windows 7 was the best in terms of stability/ui etc.. sadly, the service won't last forever.. that's why I chose to migrate.

    The problem with them ( from what I have heard.. as I can't see the source code.. it's proprietary) is the fact that they almost have the same kernel they used to have.. without any major upgrades. What they did is made they UX better so that it could attract more users. That's very stupid!

    I used to love windows at one point of time, but not anymore.. Let's see if they come up with something in future..
