I’ve been getting hacked for over 10 months

Recommended Posts

So on September the 24th I got infected by redline stealer from YouTube. I got help from cyber security experts and removed it with many avs including malwarebytes,kaspersky,hitman pro,eset and others im sure I also changed my passwords and enabled 2fa and did a windows reset. All was fine until 20th November when I had sync attempts to my outlook emails which failed but somehow they changed my region to Singapore like they somehow logged in without triggering 2fa or there being and signed they got in. They also hacked my gmail and it said my password was changed on my iPhone when it wasn’t as I had it with me. When they hacked me they would just change the password and not try to secure it like they were just showing they could do it but they knew I was valueless. A few months later they sold my Disney plus to a Turkish family I assume but we didn’t change the password to that so I know why it was hacked. Recently I’ve had signs on my accounts still being hacked as getting suspicious activity detected. My fathers steam was also hacked but idk if it was related. It seems no matter what I do they still hack me. I have since formatted my pc and I still get hacked.


here’s a sample:

Hello @Imbeingreasonable

We can assist you with scanning your computer for any possible infections or even provide information on how to properly do a clean install of Windows as well as how to keep your data better protected.

However, for the email scam you really should contact Microsoft Support so that they can assist you with properly clearing, setting, fixing your email account. Microsoft is not immune to threats in the Cloud but they should be able to assist you in correcting issues with the account.


As for the computer, here is what I would recommend.

1. DO NOT use a Microsoft Cloud account to sync data with other devices or across platforms. Not as convenient but it does give you much more control over who, what, where things get saved or connected.

Bypass Microsoft Online Account Creation during installation of Windows 11

2. Do a CLEAN install of Windows 11 that includes removal of ALL partitions.

3. DO NOT install and use programs like uTorrent

4. Get Windows cleanly installed first. Ensure that all updates and security are set on Windows before you install any 3rd party software. We can help you to check on the system right after you finish the Windows install if you want.


Here is some generic advice to help protect the computer going forward.


  1. Recommend using a Password Manager for all websites, etc. that require a password. Never use the same password on more than one site.
  2. Make sure you're backing up your files https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/136226-backup-software/

Okay then. Throw the computer away and stay away from computing the rest of your life.

Sorry, obviously I'm being sarcastic. You have not tried everything and you have not followed good sound advice. People that follow good sound advice are not plagued with issues like this.

If you want to trow in the towel then by all means go ahead it's your choice what to do. I'm simply offering advice on how to prevent it.
