    two days ago payoneer has contacted me because of an unauthorized attempt to charge my card and that i have been compromised and they are blocking my actual card and sending me a new one for security reasons.
    i checked all my social accounts and vital emails ect but everything looked normal. today when i checked my email twitter has mailed me that there was some suspecious activity on my account that there was an attempt to login from an other location or device..i googled that same message and it seems alot of people are getting that notification but it doesn't necessary mean that your account has been hacked. however i'm panicking right now, i'm performing a full computer scanwith microsofot total security antivirus. i want to format my computer and start with a fresh copy of windows but it will take days to backup my files and data. i dont want to format unless i really have to.
    im posting this to know if there is a legit tool that can tell if i have been hacked.

    Have you downloaded any cracked software recently?

    Be safe, Change your email, paypal and all main passwords using a different, clean computer or device.

    There have been a lot of sites getting user info leaked in the last few months. Is it possible you are using the same login details on different sites?
    Check your emails on https://haveibeenpwned.com/

    Boot in safemode and check for anything unusual in startup and services using msconfig.

    Sad fact is if its a root kit you probably see nothing anyway and will always doubt your pc until you do a format/reinstall regardless of how many av scans you do :(

    As mr fishkin says above did you run any dodgy exe's or pdf's before this? If not my money is on you used same email/pass combinations on a site that got hacked.
