Is my Gmail account compromised?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Ok so I just learned how to track my Gmail activity.

It says that my IP address xxx.xxx.148.148 is located where I live, as thats my IP address.

It shows when I log in normal.

However there is this other address 174.140.173.93 that it says is located in Washington.

Here is the ARIN on the address: http://whois.arin.net/rest/org/DIREC-104

It said that that IP address accessed my account about 1 hour ago.

I also noticed a minute ago that my password did not work and I had to reset it.

But heres the thing, I have ran several anti-virus scans and even removed all the "riskware" like keygens that I knew to be safe, just to be 100% safe. I changed all my passwords to a different one twice now.

This is getting frustrating. How the heck can they keep hacking me, if they are?

I would say change your password to something difficult like what i use. use the max amount of characters allowed with caps and specials characters in it (working for the military has helped me with passwords) and see if it happens again. seems to me like keygens dont pick up when shift is hit in passwords anytime I have had keygens tracking me changing my pass to something with caps and special characters in it has never been compromised.

about a month ago, GMail informed me upon signing in that my account had been accessed from an IP address in Egypt. I changed my password and everything has been fine. They probably got access to my bank account and had a good laugh and moved on.

I am just dumbfounded how they could have possibly gotten my password a 2nd time after I had just changed it days ago?

How the heck do they find out my password?

well, i use the same password for everything, and so do a lot of people. maybe you don't, but i thought mine was super secure. mine was 17 characters, unequal mix. stuff happens.

Mine has been logged into from China for a Battlenet account, and then a month later for some Adobe related from Switzerland or something like that......seems like Gmail is extremely easy to hack these days.

I've had my compromised twice now.
No idea how, because I never get viruses ever. I just can't work it out.

But, to keep it safe, I signed up for their authentication service.
Basically, when I login to my Gmail from any other computer, it'll send me a text/call my home phone and give me a code to enter to make sure it is in fact me.

So no more compromised accounts.

It's in your gmail user settings. I advise using it.

Don't have a phone. frown.gif

I am getting an authenticator for wow.

I just don't understand how I could prevent getting my gmail password hacked?

I don't get phished, I don't have a key logger, I don't go to unknown websites, I run virus scans, I have a complicated non-dic password... what else can I do?
