Re: Hacked/online game

Either:

1. You wireless router has been compromised and they have access to data on your PC that way, or
2. Your computer security is generally low, this allows them to continually re-compromise your computer and thereby gather your credentials, or
3. The email account you use to register for the game has been compromised, allowing someone to request a password recovery and thereby compromise your account that way, or
4. You have an easy to guess password on your account, probably something that's personal to you or is a dictionary word.

Forgot:

5. You're using the same password on this account as you're using on another account, and it's the other account that's been compromised.

Re: Hacked/online game

Do you have an email address associated with that account? If so, has the password for the account been sent to that address? Have you changed to password for that email address? Is your password still a dictionary (or frequent use) word?

Not sure how you'd switch off the wireless on your router. If you let us know what model it is we can check.

Re: Hacked/online game

If your game account has an email address associated with it then it might be possible to have your game password sent to that address from within the game/web site. If that's the case, and they've compromised that email account, then they can get your game credentials back easily.

Change that password as well, make sure it's really complex, and make sure it's different to all your other passwords - never re-use passwords across different systems.
