Someone just hacked me. And thinks it's funny that they log me out of everything at once.



HOW DO I DELETE / CANCEL MY ACCOUNT?!?!?!?!?

THANKS.

I don't think it has anything to do with his account here. Most likely a program or directed attack from a source outside of hts.
IMO, it's more or less a botnet controlling his box...

If you got hacked on HTS:
Contact the Mods/Admins/Devs

If you got hacked on a different site:
You can generally cancel your account through them/change your password in the "Settings" page

If your personal computer got hacked:
Download an Anti-Virus (preferably one that's free and can run from a USB drive), run it from a USB drive. Run it again. Download a different one, and repeat. If your problem still persists, download Ubuntu, and move all important personal information to a USB/CD/External HardDrive (PROGRAMS CAN BE REINSTALLED. DON'T MOVE THEM.). Then reinstall the OS of your choice, and you should be fine.

If your server got hacked:
Immediately change all passwords and advise everyone else on your site to do the same. Everything else should be the same as the section, "If your personal computer got hacked".

General tips:
-Run an anti-virus off a USB stick
-Change your passwords (make sure NONE of them are the same)
-Run an anti-spyware and anti-malware (a good AV should be able to catch them, but it never hurts to be cautious).
-Reinstall OS if problems persist
-Run DBaN and then reinstall OS if problems persist
-Burn computer in satanic ritual if problems persist

I would also reccomend running a rootkit checker.
