you wouldnt know until you tried to enter your password and it wont work

errm how do they hack your account? just by guessing your password?
#10
normally by either grabbing your password via spyware and a trojan.

Or the easiest way is finding another site your registered on like forum for example, hacking that site through a vulnerability and grabbing your password there.

Most people use the same password for everything, forums, online banking, email. Then think when you register on a site you dont know that well and give your email and password. Then they have your password. Even if you user a different one for secure sites like ebay, paypal and banking, all they need if your email password and to use the "forgot password" feature.

Stop using simple passwords. As they've already worked out your password what was it? You need to use alternating capital letters and numbers as this makes it harder. The longer the password the better too.

I had my auctiva account hacked and had some pink ghd's listed, thankfully spotted it almost straight away as I'm on ebay almost 24/7 lol. I did a search and someone elses had theirs hacked too. I think it was hacked so easily as they don't use https:// in their sign in thingy whereas ebay do. I usually log on to auctiva now by using their secure sign in tab now, but my auctiva has stopped working (not sure why) but it takes me forever to upload a picture so don't use it anymore.
