Myspace getting hacked

  1. Not sure if this is the right spot to post this thread, but whatever.

    Here's the deal. My myspace account got hacked, bulletins that weren't posted by me were up, and also, the hacker added himself to my friends list. I changed my passwords a couple times, as complex as possible, but he persisted and got in. Finally, I deleted my account, and started over. Everything was good for the first 24 hours, and now I can't login just like before. I'm assuming it's a brute forcer, because it locks my account for too many password attempts and such. If anyone understands what I'm talkin about, please help me out here. I'm rather frustrated and sick of this.

    hate to tell you, but social sites like these are infested with all kinds of nasty
    people and bad motives ... suggest you accept the environment or get off
    myspace altogether. You're luck to have not yet infested your home computer!

    Not the answer I was looking for, but it is true. :\

    yea, it's not pleasant to even report it to you, but it's not a perfect world and
    there are those with no respect for anything or anyone. all we can hope is
    someday they will grow up or get locked up -- don't care which myself!

    myspace is notorious for identity theft. There are many criminals that hack myspace to get access to your personal info. I suggest you check your credit report right away and change all your passwords.
