Hey, I could do with a bit of help from you lot. I don't really know what could have happened.
In the past, I have made an account with a forum of a electronics site.
Yesterday, I went onto this electronics site after a very long time, and looked around. I didn't enter the forum area, and I didn't try to log in.
I just checked, and my computer wasn't saving my account details, so, it was asking me to log in at the top, so it wasn't remembering me.
Anyhow, I'm a bit freaked, because I just got an e-mail, saying that someone has tried to access my account, and tried 5 times and failed, so it has been locked out.
What could this mean? Its weird if you ask me... Since I haven't been on it in ages, and I haven't logged in, how has someone tried, today to put my username in and try 5 passwords?
It seems like someone knew I entered that site, and also knew my username (its different)
I just requested to reset my password, but is that a good idea? Maybe someones accessed my e-mail, so that if I request a password change, and choose one. THey'd have access to quite a lot.
My only idea is to choose a new one.
A new password was e-mailed to me, from random letters and numbers. I won't bother going on that forum again, so I won't bother changing it. it's untraceable now as far as I know.
Its ages since I've been on it.
I'm just a bit worried how someones even... I don't know.
