    I know this is not a "hacking forum" but I don't know any hacking forums ;)

    I've had my personal youtube account hacked. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to get it back. I've tried password retrieval. Not sure how you would go about contacting Youtube and if they would take an action?

    Someone stole your account through an istealer, keylog, or rat..

    So, you may have more accounts to worry about as well.

    not much you can do about the YT account except to contact YT and explain.

    Also, check and see if they are uploading videos with links from your account
    then follow those links (safely) and if it's affiliate, contact them .

    Set a masterpassword in your browser and you will be save from all stealers.

    Then you just have to worry about someone exploiting youtube, but i think that will not be the case.

    And like above mentioned, change your other much more important accountpasswords.
