I got hacked :(

([msg=30206]see I got hacked :([/msg])

I play a program called Steam, and i've had the same password for years and the same odd username.... Never used that username on anything else.

I wake up this morning to look at my email.... it sais my contact information has been changed, and then my password....
:(

fml..........

I tried looking for ways to get back into my account but it all fails.... so I had to contact steam. and now im going to have to wait 3/4 days for them to respond.....



I just wonder how they got into the account... the only way I could think is a keylogger. bruteforce is out..... theres no inbetween...

I'm gonna go pout in the corner with my dunce hat.

you can't undo the pass change? most games i played send you an email, and within the email it says your new pass or otherwise an link were you can undo the change.

I tried it :(


If they get your password they can change the contact info.

so now the password verification goes to his email.

if only i knew his email........ oh boy would I. :twisted:

but eh, i'll just to wait. It's been a good run though, 5 years and no problems.

I use also Steam. If anyone change your password and/or email, you can recover password with the CD KEY of the game you bought for steam.
Maybe you have write you password in a phising website that save your password ?

You may have used some sort of program that had a stealer binded to it. It's a pretty common way of spreading malware.
