    Default Well I Got Hacked (And Saved)

    So I was just gonna check to see how the sales were doing in my buy world before sleeping. Well I came on, I saw that I relogged after disconnecting, I figured theres no problem. Server has been bad today. Went to my friend, but the disconnection wouldn’t stop. I told him about it, he just happened to mention I was still in the world, doing absolutely nothing at all. I thought that my account must have been compromised. Also increased my suspicion that servers were crap today.

    Well, I got alarmed, and as a safety measure changed my password as fast as I could, but still slow becuase the site was as slow as the server, if not more. Quickly changed my password, Thought it was gone now, but no, apparently, the hacker had access to my email somehow, and requested a rechange of password, I got the notification, and this time really panicked. Went to see a guide on how to change gmail pass, with minor bumps along the way, changed that. Still scared, changed my gt pass again. And whew, saved. I turned on VPN, in case and it turned out that there was a temporary ban on my account caused by a darpiano7, but it seemed that was VPN problem and I turned it off.



    Wonder why the person was afking there, he took nothing (or so I think so) and it looked like he was trying to troll me. Well I figured the VPN was to blame so I deleted it. But whew, my legs was shaking quite badly.



    Thank god

    Mmm I rmember when I thought I got hacked.
    I logged went to the living room and logged in to GT using an iPad and saw that it was "ALREADY ON?!" kind of stuff and kept reconnecting. I panicked and changed my password as quickly as I can then I went to my bedroom and realized I left my computer logged in to gt abt an hour ago..

    Got really lucky there. Make sure to change your passwords more often to prevent such things from happening again and also adding more possible protection on it.
