Some bad news guys my Gmail and Youtube accounts have been hacked and I no longer have access to them. Many of my videos have been made private and/or deleted. Once I can get a handle on exactly whats gone I will redo the vids and up them again. Any of you in my contacts list I appologize if you get spam mail via my gmail account, Im still waiting to hear back from Google on either getting the passwords reset or accounts locked.

Just the other day I setup a youtube account and it wanted my google account to work with it. Not feeling too comfortable now!

Hope you get your accounts fixed up SPPV!

Ive got my accounts back, friggen Winvestigator got installed on my PC somehow and was recording and sending my key stroke to some douche who knows where. So Ive upgraded my network to now include a hardware and software firewall and since Esets anti spyware didnt pick it up but my monthly SAS scan did Im running it on active from now on. Im going to have to re-add many of you since I gutted all my contact lists for my various email etc to try and limit any possible spam.

Sadly this was my main account that got hit (le0rt0v0/SPPV Youtube channel and my Gmail thats linked to my press email for PC-hq/Xbox-hq). Many of my modding vids and personal vids (last video of my brother before he was killed) were deleted so Im gonna have to go back through my HDD's and see which ones I still have hard copies of and which ones I will have to do from scratch.

Im not pointing any fingers but this did happen right after I clicked to DL a PDF from XS (which never DLed) and when I got home from work the next day my accounts were hacked. But never the less Im back (part of my abscence was due to a severe hardware failure on my gaming rig I had to sort out)

Sorry to hear man, I just hate people that do this to others. If it came from XS, you should give me a link to where you downloaded that file. I will sandbox the idiots and find out where the server is and mess with them instead Smile

Yep it really sucks. But ive fully formated my OS HDD and replaced it with a hybrid HDD and replaced my storage HDD with a brandnew one so my PC is now 100% clean. My Youtube and Gmail accounts have been returned and passwords changed and Ive been able to ascertain which vids have been messed with. All that had been changed to private are now back to public where they belong and Im in the process of replacing the ones that got deleted. Luckily most I still have on external HDDs but around 50 vids will have to be redone. Im hoping to get it all back to the way it was this weekend. And I apoligize to those of you in my Skype, Gmail and Live accounts as you will now be getting a message to add me as contact since I gutted every email account and Skype to avoid this or Spam getting passed on to you guys.

The real downside is I now have to go through about 700GB of XBOX apps Ive thrown together or archived to make sure they are clean before moving them off my old storage drive so I can format it and throw it back in my PC
