Hacked????

Recommended Posts

hi, I had my ebay account hacked so I canceled my CC. What I would like to know if it is possible for pc to be hacked as well because I have my verizon email account set up through outlook and I noticed my password for send receive has been changed when i did not change it? Should I change my password for my verizon account?

 

Plz let me know

Heck yes, they probably started with your email first.   

Change the email password, then everything else after.

So they had access to my computer? If yes, what do I need to do with PC because personal info is used on it?

They did not necessarily have access to your computer. Start by changing all your passwords (email accounts first). If you normally use the same password for everything, stop doing that, and use a password manager (like LastPass) to make sure you have a unique password on each site.
