Some of our members have had their accounts compromised recently and I thought I'd share a few tips on how to keep your account secure.

First of all, make sure you have an up to date antivirus program and make sure to perform regular scans with a combination of several antivirus and anti-malware programs.
NO ONE SINGLE ANTIVIRUS PROGRAM OFFERS FULL PROTECTION!
What I personally use:
-Avast
-MalwareBytes (always scan with this one if you suspect you may have a keylogger)
-RogueKiller
-Ad-Aware

Second of all:
DON'T USE THE SAME PASSWORD ON EVERY SITE AS YOUR E-MAIL/RS ACCOUNT

When you sign up for a site, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES use the same password you use for your main E-mail!
If the site has a security leak, the password you use for that site will be compromised and a person with malicious intent WILL CHECK to see if you were dumb enough to use the same password for your E-mail!
Needless to say, once soemone gets on your E-mail, it's game over.
This happened to me in the past and someone managed to gain access to my PayPal account and steal a whopping 2 EUROS! (wow!)


If you want to find out if your e-mail has been compromised, I suggest you check out this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hApNlDbCISw

I can confirm that this method of checking out if you're compromised works because my old E-mail appears to have been leaked from several sites and forums I used.
On top of all that, I was dumb enough to use a simple word as my password with no numbers or variations on everything I used ...

Learn from my mistakes and stay cheeki breeki,
Alex

You can still check to see what site your information was leaked from, you simply can't view the information.

Sometimes the owners of a forum will be kind enough to E-mail you when their database gets leaked.
I recieved such an E-mail today and this is what it looks like:

In this situation, simply don't panic.
If you can't remember if you used the same password on their forum as you do for your E-mail, simply change them.

One of our nubstripes recently got hacked by someone using this method.

Please take some time to read this thread and tighten up security on your email, rs accounts and other sites you may use.
