Account hacked

Post by luchino_mo on Thu Feb 23, 2012 7:50 am

In the last week my sister's Facebook account was hacked, and now we can't recover it.
I'll try to explain shortly what happened.
On day she try to sign in and a message indicate that the password she've inserted was not correct. So she try to change the password with the procedure. Unfortunately also her email password was changed. Therefore I recover her email (with the help of my email), and she change the facebook password's.
The next day the same thing happened. That day the problem is that it was also changed the email address associated with her profile!
So we try the procedure to recover the account. We chose three her friends and asked them to tell us the code that they had received.
After that we received a Facebook email (at the address that was previous email address associated with her profile), that says to reply explaining the problem and attaching a copy of one valid document. We sent a picture of her ID card.
Now, after two days, we have not received any response.
We wonder what can we do to regain possession of her profile.
In addition, I note that in these days were added several contacts to her profile.
Finally, if we try to redo the procedure to recover the account a message indicates that a procedure is already in place.
What can we do?

In practice we have followed all the steps but at the moment we have not yet been answered.

Unfortunately we really cannot be dealing with a 'Third Party 'to help recover a Hacked account; can you please ask her to Register with us if she so wishes for us to help her direct?

If she does we do need to know how, if at all ,the one computer she used to access Facebook is Protected and when sher last ran full computer scans to check for any infections reading

Ok I'll tell her to register and reply to this topic.
In any case she is my sister. We live together. She is not an ordinary person I know.
Anyway, thank's for your reply.

My name is Alice, and I'm the owner of the hacked account.
Can you help me?

I always use a protected connection to Facebook with the htpps. Also, my computer have an updated antivirus (Avast) and a software firewall (Comodo).
Finally, few days ago, I ran a complite scan with Avast, Mallwarebytes and SpybotS&D.

Do you have any of the reports from those scans saved?

If so can you let us see them please?

Unfortunately I have not saved any reports. But I can ensure you that was found no infection and no threat.
I really think the problem is not on my computer.

What can I do? The Facebook team still does not respond!!

The concern is that, as you say, even your email account has been compromised so ,to help us see if anything is on there please run this more thorough scan


Please be aware that to run a complete full computer scan with this program can take several hours so...be prepared!!!!!!


Superantispyware

Disclaimer; Run at your own risk

Please download and scan with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.

  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:

  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".

You do not have the ability to send PMs so please give us the report in this thread as per the above instructions

Please also run this scan and post the report when done


Malwarebytes Feb 2012



Disclaimer You download and run this Program at your own risk

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and save it to your Desktop.
  • .

Malwarebytes may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet and double-click on the file to install the application.
    .
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • Malwarebytes will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button and continue.

  • Under the Scanner tab, make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • When finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box, then click the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked and then click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes when done.

Note: If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.



Thanks !!

It is a false positive. It's an old Assembler compiler used by my brother. (FASM stand for FastAssembler - fastassembler.net)
But if you say so, I delete the entire folder.

Now, what can I do???
I want back my Facebook account!!!!!!!

From several months the computer is only mine.

what do you mean by this please? Did someone own the computer before you got use it before you got it ?



[quote] the last week my account was hacked, and now we can't recover it.
I'll try to explain shortly what happened.
On day she try to sign in and a message indicate that the password she've inserted was not correct. So she try to change the password with the

With what procedure please?

Unfortunately also her email password was changed.
How did you know this?

Therefore I recover her email (with the help of my email),
Hod did you and your friend do this please?

and she change the facebook password's.

So you have been able to log into Facebook after that lot ?


The next day the same thing happened. That day the problem is that it was also changed the email address associated with her profile!

What did you do with the email you would have had from Facebook about this please?
So we try the procedure to recover the account. We chose three her friends and asked them to tell us the code that they had received.

In practice we have followed all the steps but at the moment we have not yet been answered.

You will need to wait for Facebook to get back to you but I think you have a compromised computer as some one who should not know the information about your Facebook account does know it

Although the scans so far run appear to be 'clear' it may be prudent to get your computer checked out on one of the specialist forums as, if you are running a computer that is compromised then all attempts to get you back into Facebook will be really wasted


Someone who should not be able to has accessed your email account and changed its password, probably twice ......does that not worry you or give to something to be concerned about ?

Of interest, how do you connect to the internet?

Do you leave the computer on and linked to the internet when you are not using it or do you shut it down completley and turn it off?


Do you have your own personal log into the computer or is it capable of letting anyone use it ?


Also; do you do any P2P File- sharing on that computer and which programs do you use please?
