Default Hacked!

I got hacked and I'm afraid they might come back.
I'm using an NVidia firewall and Sygate personal fire wall Pro.
My password is now a combination of numbers letters and symbols
What should I do?

I think it was 1337Haxor that was spamming...

ADvid, my advise to you is that if you are in doubt then you should go back to square one and start again regards your security...
though firewalls and virus scanner should be enough to stop you getting hacked really...

I didn't mean to imply anything bad, just thought your were someone who had changed their name, [no, not the David!] lol, thanks for being cool about it mate, where else where you using it before CF if you don't mind saying?

I was asking advid privately, he might have told me by PM, I don't know if he'll be happy with you, displaying that URL!

Sorry advid, joxley 1990 thought he was helping, & published a website address that you use, I've told him he was wrong to do this, if you want, I'll delete it for you.

See the post by joxley1990, he has published a websiite address of yours, thinking he was helping, seeing that I had asked where you were before CF, I've read him the riot act, as you will also see, if you want, I'll delete it for you, he shouldn't have interfered, feel free to have a go at him too.

Question Re: Hacked!

If members go to the website in your sig, could they obtain other peoples IP's?, to me it doesn't seem to do any harm for others to know this, but there some twisted minds out there that could use this to act maliciously in some way, [present company excepted, I hasten to say]
