Hotmail and Wow account hacked

Recommended Posts

I was told to repost the topic here with logs, so here goes:

I was kicked out of World of Warcraft while playing, and realized quickly that I was being hacked by someone else logging in with my account and pword (my account was automatically temporarily disabled). What I realized is that my Hotmail and Wow account pwords are the same--my other email account, which is actually the acct keyed to my World of Warcraft account, wasn't hacked into, but because my hotmail and WoW account had the same password at the time, I'm guessing the hackers got in that way. This is the 2nd time I've been hacked--the first time I had no antivirus or spyware stuff, this time I had Online Armor, Malwarebytes, NoScript, and Spybot S and D, which I updated regularly and checked regularly (I used the free versions if that helps). Online Armor had both the Program Guard and Keyloggers detector checked as active at the time.

After I was hacked, I ran scans on MBM and Spybot S and D. Scans showed no keyloggers. What I suspect might have happened is that I clicked on a phishing link via my Hotmail at some point (it said it was a Blizzard address--and this was before I reactivated my WoW account and before Hotmail wised up and spotted these emails seemingly sent from Blizzard as fakes).

How can I find and root out the likely keylogger presence on my desktop, and if I can't do that, what would you recommend I do? I have changed my Hotmail password, and deactivated my WoW account temporarily while I wait for my authenticator to get here and while I prepare the account recovery form I need to send to Blizzard (basically it asks for proof I'm me).

I run a Windows 7 desktop, if that helps. I could post the MBM log here but it literally just says "0" threats were detected, so I don't think it'll be of much value. Still, if you'd like logs posted, please let me know.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I don't mean to push, but....I'm afraid that as the thread was on page 5 as of today, this won't be spotted by anyone until I bump it...so here it is. I'm quite afraid my computer is not secure. If it helps, I think I clicked on one of the phishing emails in my Hotmail, and though the page didn't load, it must have logged my current password or some such? Or did it install a keylogger that is still active on my computer? None of my scans are showing anything, including Lavasoft's Ad-aware.

How would I disable Noscript? I'm using a Korean desktop so I can't really understand all the stuff it's saying--and how would I reenable it after disabling it?

Would simply not opening Firefox work to allow Noscript to not interfere with DDS, even though the internet connection would be active?

Thanks for the reply! I'll get the logs to you as soon as I know how I can get Noscript safely disabled and then reenabled.

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Here is a guide on how to disable them:

    If you can't disable them then just continue on.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
