    so...some douche bag has hacked my personal email account 5 times now, he would go in and send aff links to everyone in my contacts.

    Any ideas on how to get rid of him, no idea how he keeps getting my password all the time, I mean if it was a keylogger wouldnt he fuck with all of my email accounts plus other personal things.


    wiered, any ideas?

    Eh u must be kiddying me?

    How he can change it that many times is most likely because u have a spyware/keylogger installed on your computer, and from that he can log everything u do ... Run a malwarebytes scan through your whole computer...

    the only thing that doesnt make sense is that if its a keylogger, he would have access to pretty much everything, but lets assume he is just a good kid and doesnt want to fuck with my bank account or other shit, still, why only hack to one email account when I use 3 almost on a daily basis, its just wiered.

    Another thing, ever since this email account got hacked, I cant recieve any email there. dont get it.

    Can you still send emails from there?
    Maybe the email provider blocked incoming emails or something like that for spam?
    Or he messed up with it. Check your incoming email settings, maybe he setup some sort of forwarder that forwards all incoming emails to his email? This way he knows what sort of response hes getting probably from the spam he sent

    I actualy dont care about this particular email too much, I mean Ive had for 7 years maybe but its so full of spam that thats all I use it for. Anyway, Ill run the spyware and hopefully that will solve it. thanks for the help.

    You silly goose. He knows your secret question answer. So he can just change your password.
    Change your secret question to something like "The last four digits of my SS"

    Wow, that guy must be really stupid if he didn't change your email password. You should thank him for that, not blame him...

    Why's it been assumed twice in this thread the attacker is changing the victim's password? Am I missing something?

    OP, is it a free e-mail service provider, or something else?

    He only changed it the first time he hacked, I changed it back, and he hasnt changed it since but manages to find the password, seems logical that hes got the secret answer somehow but I cant imagine how he would get it, its pretty specific and my password is like pretty damn strong.

    Random question but is your account linked to a Blizzard World of Warcraft account?

    Change your password and se if it helps, very often this occurs when ppl have shared their passwords on other sites, like "msn blocker check" and such.

    So change your pass and se what happens
