Hello guys so im new here, found this site from searching on google

 

So I use D2jsp.org (if posting sites is not allowed sorry) and its a site used for online trading for many different games it uses a currency of FG (Forum gold, its used to trade for items and vice versa)

 

I play D2, D3, and marvel heroes at the moment

 

About a week ago I logged onto jsp and seen all my FG was gone, someone was able to log onto my account and send it to there account, I opened a support ticket and they said hes been getting a lot of people lately hes locked now

 

He took my FG but did nothing to any of my games or my Hotmail (also I pay bills online)

 

This left me confused because I don't do anything that's harmful to my computer (worse I do is go to projectfreetv to watch dexter)

 

I have windows 7

 

and use

Microsoft security essentials

malwarebytes

 

Im just paranoid that ive been keylogged somehow and I do alot of stuff on my computer

Hello,

Just because this person was able to log into your account doe not mean necessary your pc was infected, but it also does not mean that it is clean for sure either. There are many ways to get access to almost any online account, brute force attacks are still pretty popular, and there are password cracking utilities that can literately crack any 8 digit or fewer password in only a few hours. I am not saying anything about you specifically, but a large majority of people also use the same password for multiple accounts, so if any other account ( email, or any online account of any kind) was compromised, that is another way to obtain a password fairly easily. there are multiple password applications that are very secure (keepass is great) 

http://keepass.info/download.html

that will also help keep online accounts safe.

having said all that, i would also suggest running a full antivirus scan, and posting any results in the am I infected forum.
