My boyfriend got his Yahoo E-mail account hacked SEVEN times, It seems someone is only hacking his account to get on his http://theninja-rpg.com/ Account, they sign into his game player he has for three years.... he can't report it or else they will delete his player. again, he played this game for three years...

how can this be solved?

he changed his Yahoo Password seven times, my boyfriend has the boy's email address because the guy left his email address when he signed into the game (as a 2nd email)

it makes me a bit scared, If this happen to me I would cry...

how to stop this from happening again? All he wants...Is to be safe and not have to deal with the same guy over and over, trying to change his game player or being in his account.

can someone help with this?

TELL him to stop! This is illegal unless he owns the computer..
....do you really want a boyfriend that would do this, or that won't stop when you ask him to?

Re: How to Stop a Computer Hacker?

Yahoo is hardly a "secured site"  and in fact is a major snooper/adbot/spybot  in itself...so much so that while I do have a "trash Email" account there I keep my security mode on high and often Yahoo "clunks" or complains my computer's security settings won't let something or other mess with my computer

 

Your boyfriend can use his service provider e-mail with the security questions feature turned on so you have to answer 3 or 4 questions only your boyfriend should know if logging on from not his primary computer

Re: How to Stop a Computer Hacker?

Basically by using his Email address, the hacker can get his theninja-rpg.com password.

All he needs is his game's password.

the hacker can go into his account and request theninja-rpg that he forgot his password, that site will send him my boyfriend's password from that site to his Yahoo Email.

this lets the hacker get into his game account.

All the hacker needs is his password and he can play the player and be able to mess it up or whatever he wants with it.

so my boyfriend has changed his account. However the hacker is using someone else's account and keeps asking questions through the game account he's on and asking 'what's your birthday?' or 'whats your fav color?' etc

because he's trying to get into his account

The man said "look, this is getting old. Lemonade’s all we’ve ever sold. Why not give it a go?" The duck said “No.”
Then he waddled away. He waddled away. He waddled away
Till the very next day.

Re: How to Stop a Computer Hacker?

From what I'm told, this guy just hacked into his E-mail...for some reason he doesn't change his email password but goes into his rpg game and changes his player by making him weaker, getting rid of his weapons.

Now I don't play this game and I have no clue about how it works but my boyfriend says that his email address is link to his game player. This person must be from the game or someone my boyfriend knows.

My boyfriend uses his brother's laptop, he told me his brother doesn't know his passwords (besides i really doubt his brother knows how to hack into people's accounts)I asked him if his friends know his password: no

So all I can think of is it's an outsider who plays the game and maybe saw how powerful his player is and wanted to do something about it.

as I said...this person left his email on the game's website. you know when they say second email address? well he put his email address there so neither this guy is showing off that fact that he can get into his account...or he's stupid. LMAO.

Re: How to Stop a Computer Hacker?

Well next time never expose anything that is related to your email account. Use stronger password and also be aware that if you are using an internet cafe computer your account is always at risk because you don't know weather that their computer is secured from key loggers. There is a way to trick a key loggers. Do you know how to do it?

Re: How to Stop a Computer Hacker?

OK - well, I'm still not clear on how "hacking" his yahoo is connected with the game, and he may be jumping to conclusions on what exactly is being hacked.
At any rate, as Pizzle mentioned, a keylogger controlled by the person is the most likely method - but, not knowing exactly what is being 'hacked', there are other possibilities. The fact that he's using an "untrusted" system complicates things even more.

How to avoid it?
1) start by using a "trusted" system that he has full control over (i.e.; his OWN computer)
2) keep that trusted computer secured. If it's Windows there are entire books written on that subject. if it's a Mac or Linux, basically just turn it on
3) once on the "trusted"(1) and secured(2) computer, follow safe-computing guidelines: Never open unexpected attachments in email or IM programs, never download/install software from untrusted sources, use a safer browser (Firefox instead of Internet Explorer) always install OS security updates (automatic on Mac's and newer Windows) etc
4) after following 1,2, & 3, reset ALL passwords on ALL accounts

Sorry but there is no quick/easy answer, especially with the sparse information we have.

Re: How to Stop a Computer Hacker?

If he changed his password multiple times and it keeps happening I would be concerned about keyloggers. Does this person have physical access to his computer? Does he know this guy? I'd be worried that this guy would log in and then change the password. That would create another set of problems.
