I wasn't hacked, but I recently forgot my password, my secret question answer, and I didn't set an alt e-mail. I ended up finding this site when I was looking for a solution, and here's what I got my the FAQ:

Go here: 123 msn messenger

And then go to where it says, "your account has been hacked?" It has up to date information (8-1-08) on MSN Messenger and recovery.

It's worth a shot.

    * Your Internet service provider (at work or at home).
    * The date and approximate time of your last login.
    * The information below:

hey guys i jus read through your messeges and i have a easy solution for solving this MSN HACKNG!!!.

1.Rebot your computers (that's an option if you still have the backup cd which has all the files you need for the computer)



1.Turn off your computer from the main.
2. Turn the modem or router.
3.leave it off for about 5-6 day (not lesser)
4.After the 5- 6 day's turn the MODEM OR ROUTER ON first leave it on for about 5 to 6 minutes
5. Last of all turn your compuer on.

I have just had my email hacked! I have a lot of personal information in my account. If you have any experience in contacting hotmail customer service or could you tell me how you recovered your password, I will greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your help.

marsha there are alot of hackers out there, i believe more than ever, you shoild also install spybot, which works very well, people are cruel, and if they find something that fascinates then, or give them kicks of laugh, what they do is blog. God Bless....Aloha

Hello, I had my account hacked, I know who the person is, and I changed my password a few times because they hacked into my facebook and my myspace, when they hacked into my myspace page, i had it on an old e-mail so I could reset my password and that's when I found out which password they were using, and now they have hacked into both of my accounts, and they deleted all of my stuff, at least on my facebook that I know of, and I still want to get onto my msn, I've tried everything but they changed the answer to my secret question so I can't even change my password now. I really don't know what to do. My life is getting ruined over rumours, and I'd like them to stop that is why I need to get into my accounts. I really need help.
any ideas?
thank you

Please use better English when posting.

Secondly, formatting your hard drive... you really didn't need to do this for an MSN email account (hotmail I'm assuming?) because all the data is stored online, if he changed your password and other information, reformatting your hard drive won't do a thing about it.

I would suggest contacting MSN support, they will be able to help you most likely.

I've had my windows live account hacked, but recently got it back....the reason this person hacked my account is to get my xboxlive, where a lot of people use credit cards to purchase numerous items such as games and online gaming gold cards. The guy who hacked mine is from Ohio but luckly i noticed i had been hacked within a couple of hours so i was able to act on it qiuckly, there are a few sites online which give you step by step instructions on how to hack into someones msn including youtube, i cant see that anyone has much to gain by hacking into msn unless you use xboxlive as sites like these all use windows live app. ( Facebook, my space , xboxlive...ect ect). The guy who hacked me managed to buy 10,000 gamerpoints £85-00 and a 12 month gold gamer card £40-00 but he got caught as you have to be pretty clever to cover all your tracks, this guy wasn't as he couldn't change all of the details on my account. The hacker usually looks for an active gamer and then once he has your gamertag he then goes to where they vertually give you all the infomation of there windows live details , then they can change your personal details ( email add. and password ) then they change your gamertag to there own, from there they can get into your system and transfer all your games and info to their xbox. Microsoft thinks that most people give out personal information, but this is not the case as they won't admit theres a flaw in pipeline, its a microsoft problem and they just don't know how to deal with it. One guy who had his account hacked and reported to the police, they told him to go to microsoft and ask for the ip address of the hacker, but they refused to give him the address so in my eyes the hacker seems to be protected by microsoft...DAMN YOU BILL GATES!!!!!

My account was hacked on yahoo and now my friends account on msn. What fixed my account on yahoo (or at least stopped the hacked emails from keep sending) was to delete all my contacts. I exported them first and saved them. So far I haven't had anymore hacked emails get sent out. Can't these people think of better things to do!

just fill in the details on that, make sure u say ure msn has been hacked and u need them to help u get account back, after that they will send u an email ( there is an option where u have to type in ure friends email address and another 1 were u type in ure own )
they will send ure friend an email with a bunch of questions for u to fill out, so fill them out and send it them bk, after that, they will send ure friend a link to reset ure msn password and after that ure msn is back,
just make sure it a friend u can trust lol

My hotmail account was hacked into. For the last 3 hours, while hotmail's crack team of employees aren't resetting my password, my friends have been conversing with the scum who have sent everyone in my address book an email about what a lucrative opportunity I have found in England while attending a youth program.

And I'm a paying customer. I have only the small satisfaction of having been able to cancel my subscription in the meantime.

Abandon your hotmail accounts.

Some website called
"checkwhoblockedyou" or whatever(Ive never heard of the site until now).
If you have found a way to fix this PLEASE PLEASE email me.

Me- Oct 24, 2008 04:40PM
I had the same thing happen. Same issue of the hacker sending an email to all of my contacts basically stating they ("I") am in England and stumbled across a great opportunity. Please send money.

What did you end up doing?
Should I be afraid of identity theft?

Right. I'll make everything clear. The hackers are using a backdoor trojan virus to get into your computer and then into your msn. Once this has been completed, they can find out all your details as if they were you. This makes things easy for them to keep accessing your msn with out the need of a password. This backdoor trojan must of been obtained by either...

1. A website you once clicked on that downloaded without your knowledge the virus
2. One of your contacts sent you a file with the virus embedded.. this could even be a song.
3. A link through an email.

SO. How do we solve this? Well.. first of all, we need to scan, then quaranteen all of your received files. Then.. scan your whole computer. Whilst doing this, disconnect your modem/router. This means the hacker can't access you computer to obtain your msn with out a password. Once completed, put your firewall back on the highest setting (assuming you folks have a good firewall, if not.. then its your own fault) and reboot your computer.

This should conclude all the problems you have had an finally have you back up and running.

Try this out and see if it works. Let me know by replying to this post.

Thanks, Ryro.

Hi Ryro-Spectical,

When I tried to check hotmail account in company, someone saw my secret question. But then I feel it is not security to check email in public machine so I didn't type the password and log out. Later on when i log in the email at home, the first time I typed correct password, there is always an error message pops out. I need to typed my password for the 2nd time then I can log in my account. I want to know whether someone can access my account without changing my password?

Marsha- Oct 1, 2008 12:45AM
Hello Again,

There is almost one site you can enter to almost make your computer hack proof. when you enter the site there is a disclaimer that states your computer will be monitored....So if you have a hacker in your computer they are good as caught when you enter the site... there are no secrets.... The national security agency has a program called Project Echelon..... This is star wars stuff.... I know nothing , I know nothing....
