I need help,this troll,keeps hacking into my google/usenet account,how is he doing this??
I keep deleting my google/usenet user names & passwords.
I create a new user name on google/usenet. I even create new passwords.
Yet this troll,still manages to hack into my google/usenet account & post replies/threads using my google/usenet user name+password.
I checked is profile info on google/usenet. he's from the UTC time zone & he uses a iphone/touch.
everytime I delete my google/usenet account+password,then create another google/usenet+password. then I create a thread on google/usenet,one hour later the troll hacks my account & post's replies under my user name.
how is he doing this? does he have some kind of software program that allows him to run passwords super quick & find mine.
does he have some sort of virus or tracking cookies on my computer? I ran 2 anti virus programs which were eset on-line & microsoft safety scanner on-line. I ran both anti-virus program doing a full scan looking for tracking cookies & so forth,they reveal zero viruses & zero tracking cookies. plus I have a windows 7 fire wall.
So how is this troll havking into my google/usenet accounts one hour after I create them & post a thread on google/usenet?
any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like he's hijacking your cookies.
Try disabling them for now.

Hijacking your cookies gives them access to the account, but they shouldn't be able to lock you out that way because you usually have to type in your old password in order to change it. Even if you hijack the account, the old password should still appear as black dots on the password change screen.
-Fake login page
-E-mail break-in and use of "Forgot Your Password?"
So, if keylogger, run an antivirus scan and hope your software is good enough to find keyloggers.
If a fake login page, check the URL of your login page before you login.
If e-mail break in, try changing your e-mail password.
But I'm a noob, so maybe I'm wrong.
