I got my account hacked a year ago. Basically all they need is your username and email ... once they got that its not hard to glean you password or change it all together.When I got hacked I never played on any other computer or even used mods at the time. Someone snagged access to my email and actually got the password changed while I wasn't paying attention and got into the account.Granted I didn't notice because I had turned the account off. I came back to the game about 6 months later ... the hacker could only use my character for about 2 of the months before the time expired. I guess they could have added time but it was no cost to me.The hacker leveled my hunter to the cap, geared the hunter as well as made the character very wealthy in the process. Once I gained control of my account again I had to go take steps to put more security on my email account tied to the game.Basically I created a new email I only use for that account so its not my everyday email. I haven't had any issues since.
