My deviantArt account has been taken by someone. Please someone tell me how to either recover it or close it.

I would contact Main Customer Service and have them sort it out
Hacking DA accounts seems to be the new sport for script kiddies.

Hope you get your account back with too much trouble

Yes This time I have put a generated password.
Practically the old password was very easy to guess, as I never thought when I created the account; that, I will be serious for that account.
I had definite fault (and paying for it still); hope it never happens to anyone

Abhishek,

Joan has a good point - but I would go even further - Change the password on all your online accounts - and run a full malwarebyytes and whatever AV you use on your local system.

If possible change the passwords from another machine maybe a public access one just in case your local security has been comprimised

You are very right. I recently got an trojan horse...I posted here too at that time...not more than a week. Ran Malwarebyte in safemode; it caught 21 files as far I remember...thank you very much for pin pointing it...yes, I am going to change all passwords from another computer in my home...and surely running MSE and malwarebyte in this laptop; I will post the log tomorrow (Its night here now)...thank you once again .


P.S.: Here is that old thread of me for trojan horse: Infected with Trojan horse giving known error
