Default Okay, what the hell?

I don't know what or how this happened.

But someone has changed my avatar from the Intel Core 2 Duo one to the current chaintech one?

The last thing I was doing was putting my car in, and no one else came on the computer in that time.

Just weird...

Yeah, looks like it, but how I don't know...

Just had someone trying to hack into my system twice in five seconds too... Outpost blocked them though.

Maybe it was a database glitch, otherwise someone must of had access to your account.

The best thing to do would be change your password and check to see if that guy changed your email address or not.

Changed password and put avatar back to previous one. E-mail still works...

Even weirder thing is, that the chaintech avatar isn't in the list of available avatars.
