uh it was so strange how the "person" just changed stuff on some things not others and yet he left a paper trail of all the reset emails lol.

As dog is not the same as hot dog, ethical hacking is not the same as hacking.
I would argue that those dictionary definitions are not really valid. This is where general understanding is often behind technology. If I broke into my library and turned on their PC is that hacking? IMHO no. To me, "hacking" would be:
Gaining access to a computer system by means of exploiting technical vulnerabilities.
That distinguishes it from social engineering and so on. Also seeing as "ethical hacking" is a common phrase, and something we (as a company) pay for (as penetration testing) - it's not illegal at all, and yet still "hacking"!?

Well it "I" requested a password reset for most of my accounts which then the password was changed to something else.
I have not logged on to any public network.

No one gets 'hacked' nowadays, it's not possible. Phished, malwared, social engineered, yes.
Enable 2-factor authentication after you've reset everything, check your logs (gmail), sent items, trash etc.
I found the Ip address of the person who tried to brake into one of the games i play, I wonder what you can do with it?, apart from block him.

I woke up this morning to discover my Uni email , and two other personal emails were hacked what I have lost I cant tell. each email had different passwords. I have reset all three and changed passwords to brand new ones. Other passwords to games have be also hacked and im going though them , Can you give any advice about how this could have happened, and the best way about not letting it happen again?
