    Hi,
    I would first like to thank BHW without which I would not have been able to make $150-$200 per day from 5 different websites. I have been ranking for few competitive keywords which I learnt it all from BHW.

    But, I have lost it all.

    My PC got completed Hacked 5 days ago. All the important files which I had stored in my PC has got deleted, all my websites & hosting accounts have been hacked even the Roboform Data files is just gone.

    The baddest of all is that I DON'T HAVE ANY BACKUP. Mistake is mine that I should have had a BACKUP of everything as I was always been cazy when it comes to taking BACKUP.

    I am sharing this here because I dont want anyone to suffer the same. So PLEASE TAKE BACKUP of all ur important files U may never know when ur accounts or PC may get hacked.

    I have learnt my lesson. Please don't wait until U experience it, learn from observation.

    One of the major problem which I am facing right now is that I dont know the passwords of most of my accounts as Roboform use to save it & there was never a need for me to remember any. I only remember the login details of few accounts.

    My major source of income is adsense but I dnt know the user ID and password of my adsense account. When I was a noob I got my adsense account approved from fiverr who had created a hotmail account for getting the adsence account approved & I never used that Hotmail account for anything else. The baddest part now is that I dont remember the exact hotmail user ID which is making me unable to use my adsense account. Though I will get this fixed but will require sometime.

    I had a Gmail account which I used for all my purchases online has been completely hacked.

    Sometimes I think I should try to find who did this to me. At the same time I even think I should not waste my time doing it, Learn my lesson & make sure my pc does not get hacked here after. What do U ppl suggest me to do ???

    The only good news is that I have access to my VPS which has SenukeX, ScrapeBox + other few applications running. I immediately changed the password soon after I got the access.

    At the same time I have some serious expense to take care off. I need $300 dollar in my bank account within 10days from now.

    I am looking for something which will make $300 in a week so that I can pay off my expenses as of now & start over again.

    But, the big question is HOW ??? If I sell my service on Fiverr it will take 15 for the money to reach my account. If I write artiles in Freelancer.com or Odesk I need to make a Profile with positive feedback which is time consuming.

    I can work for 10hrs/Day for the next 10days

    I can do almost everything related to On Site and Off site SEO. I can perform Keyword Research, Write SEO optimized Articles, get the whole website SEO optimized depending upon the targeted keyword & Create safe quality Back-links using both Manual & automated way.

    Please suggest me some ideas to make atleast $300 within a week using the skills & knowledge I possess. & PLEASE TAKE BACKUP of all ur important files. And please suggest me weather I should try finding out who hacked my account or just let it go & make sure I dont get hacked again.

    Thank You all in Advance !!!

    did you have any cracked software on your PC by any chance? or Java. Cuz recently Java has been found to have a major vulnerability. If you are not knoledgeable in computer forensics you'll not get anywhere trying to find the person that hacked you.

    I'd say Move on.

    Use last pass. Everything is stored in their servers rather than on your computer.

    Wait don't panic. I mean you have all the reasons, but try to restore what you can, while you can.

    First, you said your sites are totally lost. Well check their cache and I'm sure that you will have a preview of the main page of them, now I don't know how your sites were like, but if you had enough content on the first page, maybe that could help a bit into rebuilding them.

    Secondly, you said that all the data or some of it from your computer was lost. Don't panic because of that, get yourself a few data recovery softwares; I did a little search and found few top softs for that, you can see it here (note: not my site, that is a review site with aff. links, I just gave you the link so that you can read some reviews of some names and decide which one to get. Get, not buy.)

    As for the password things, I don't know much about what to tell you, except that you should try remembering what you can now, because later on it would be much harder. Maybe you can check your Fiverr account again and see the details of that order you had, and maybe you can find the hotmail log in, in there.

    I don't know whether you should worry more about recovering what you can or start working for the $300 you need, and I mean that I can't really advice you what to do first, but IMO you should better try to save and recover what you can from this thing, and then find a way to get your money.

    What really makes me curious, is how someone who makes $150-$200 a day aka $4.5k - $6k per month, needs desperately 300 bucks, and didn't saved a single penny. If I'd go by what my paranoia is telling me now, I'd say some nasty things, but I can't judge much about this because everyone has a different life, and different expenses. Hope you get well OP.

    Talking about my websites. They have deleted all my website files. I have sent a mail to my hosting company regarding this. Hope they can restore the files..

    I think the hacker has deleted some windows file which is making me unable to use my PC. I am using another PC. I am taking my hard-disk to an expert before I could do anything to it..

    I knew someone is gonna ask me this question.. Whatever money I am make online 20% I use it for my personal use 80% I reinvest on different projects online until I have steady income for life.. I usually have enough money in my back account but recently I had an emergency for which I had to withdraw all the money & at the same time my PC got hacked. Sometimes all the bad things happen at the same. I never thought a day like this is gonna come in my life. Talking about 80% reinvested money all important files of my projects are now not accessible. I dont want to borrow any money. Suggest me some ideas of making some quick money. Thanks for the reply.

    Sometimes all the bad things in life happens at the same time. I will for sure get back on track again. But, as of now I just want to take care of my expense. Thanks for the reply.

    You should call Hosting and Domain accounts immediately
    Hacker might try to shift your domains out to other account...

    I don't feel good storing my passwords on external servers.

    To OP, didn't your host do routine backups of your sites?

    I've never been interested in this, but isn't there a cyber police?
    I mean your case isn't a small matter. $150-$200/day can be considered a big theft and I assume that they would do something.
    Not to mention that other things have been stolen from your PC.

    Btw you should mind what mails you are opening.
    Few months ago I saw on TV how a hacker took him 1 min to create a mail that will enable him upon opening to get full control of the users PC...

    I have already made the call to my hosting and domain accounts. My websites are now under my control.

    Can U elaborate a little ???

    Ya, they do.. I will get it back I hope my site will run like before after it is restored..

    I feel I should just move on and make sure that I dont get hacked again.

    I really dont know how I got hacked. As I said in my earlier post most of the applications which I use is paid and few are cracked.. But, I make sure I check the VirusTotal scans + good amount of replies before using cracked application. But, from hereafter I will never even think of cracked application.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who make backups and those who will.

    hey man, that sucks really bad, i really feel for you. For your adsense login why not login to fiverr and find the gig and extract the info again, you should have it back soon.
