My settings were also deleted yesterday as well and I called to complain but they said nothing more could be done. As no one attempted to change email address, I thought nothing of it. Today I got an email saying that changes had been made and if it wasn't me then I should call up. Someone changed the admin email address and also deleted a bunch of settings. I'm not too concerned with what was deleted as this is a new account however I am concerned that better security measures can not be put in place to prevent this in the future. Is it really hard to implement stuff like:
2-factor Identification (esp when changing username/email)
Secret Question Answering (when changing username/email)
I really hope this doesn't happen to me again. I am currently sweeping my whole network to make sure it wasn't from any of the computers here.
Has anyone else experienced this ?
Edit: fyi, the 'hacker' thought it was funny to edit names to 'Unlucky one' .
