Default some stupid shitheads

Okay, so some shithead hacked into my email, nexon account, and facebook today. They used my email to gain access to my nexon and facebook accounts. Now, I've gone through google's services to get my gmail back (google is way better than these damned game companies, took google like, 20 minutes to get my account back). After that, I reset the password, and regained my facebook.

HOWEVER.

Nexon's password retrieval system allows for like... 1 reset per day.

...

Guess who got to use the one reset?

Well, it certainly wasn't me.

So basically, if I want to log back into my account, the soonest I'll be able to have it back is...

5 and a half hours from now, if nexon considers "per-day" as starting at midnight PST. Even so, that's 3 AM my time and I sure as hell won't be up. Yes, I'll be able to get my account back. But by the time I get it it'll probably be completely stripped.

I think they're only hacking my maplestory though lol? Because I found in my inbox several messages. A request for my nexon username, a request for my nexon password to be reset, and a request for my maplestory pin to be reset. So if they're only jacking my maplestory, then I don'l really care. If they jack my mabinogi though... It's on.

The fact that they managed to jack into your ANYTHING is a sign that you have FAR worse problems than just potentially losing an online gaem account. I'd be a LOT more worried about the security of your PC at this point.

Start going through the usual rigmarole of scanning for malware, virii, keyloggers and the like.

I'm running one now.

But yeah, as far as access to my email account, I'm concerned how they got in...

Don't bother. Just reformat. It's probably faster and will certainly be more thorough.
