Re: How do people hack your psn account

Mar 30, 2014

My dad works for Nintendo. And just because you killed me like maybe two times the other day in that game we were playing, I'm going to have him call his buddies at Microsoft and ban your PS2. 

 

Thanks for the account, turbonerd.

You have my symphaties for what is occurred on your games. Just remember It is an hacking only when you cannot log in on PSN, if not they can "glitch" your data save, but there is difference but you can still use your psn ID options, then is not considered as such. And reading the previous posts that mostly happens because attachments or account sharing. A serious hacking it is completely a different thing than a bugged data save. I'd rather would not worry about the second one too much. You can always restart after all. Smiley Wink

It's usually when you Gameshare, once you give them the account and password and you no longer have control of it, for about 5-10 minutes (usually when they take all the dlc  in your account) and then when their done they have the urge to change your password or email, if this happens just call Sony and say "I forgot my password, can you reset it?"

We all have that urge.

Well... I'm playing red dead redemption online, and last monday i was participating In a clan fight.

During the fight, i got a freindrequest from a guy our posseleader had put In the posse, i accepted it after the other clan left.

 

I'm not saying if it was one from the other clan or the guy i accepted, but it must be one of Them.

5 minutes after they left and i accepted the friendrequest, the guy i accepted went offline and suddenly i recieved a friendrequest from my OWN account?!?!

I thought it was just a fail, so i rejected it, but Then it came again and right after a message saying: "i've hacked you" again from my own account...

And i got no idea of how the person who did it could manage it under 5 minutes...

 

I quickly change my email and code.

 

 

But i don't know if it helped, anyway, so what i really just wont to know is how it could happend..


Do you want to know why I know he didn't send you a message from your account? Because as soon as someone tries to log in under an account that is logged in, the system will log you off. I had 3 PS3s and there were a couple of times where I was online and the kids would turn on another PS3 and use my account, instantly logging me off.

 

Seeing that YOU didn't get logged off, that person wasn't on YOUR account.

 

Can people do anything to you if they have your IP address? Sure, if you allow your firewall to be accesses from outside your LAN and leave the default password. Or you leave a PC (not console) in the DMZ or don't have your firewall setup correctly.

If your console is not jailbroken there are no services available to a hacker that you need to worry about.

 

Can someone hack you over the internet because your wireless is weak? NO! LOL I really cannot believe that was suggested.

How is someone going to hack your wireless in NY if the hacker is in CA? LOL

Can wireless be hacked locally? Sure. If someone is close enough to obtain your wireless signal there are tools out there but if you use the correct settings and a very strong password they will not waste their time.

 

Bottom line is that these script kiddies or copy and paste hackers are not going to hack your PS3. They are just trying to scare you. Are there ways to see your traffic? Yes but the VERY few people that can do this are not going to waste their time monitoring PS3 traffic or "residential" traffic, it takes to much to do it and the reward is not worth the risk.

Well people could guess your pass if it's weak or they could bruteforce into your account. The best way to stop this is to use a

good pass. I recommend using lastpass and use it to generate a password , also when creating a password use the max amount of characters sony allows 30


Example =  To10@2&35^ZrgUSu42RXKj$krgnXg*

 

Don't  be stupid and use passes like BreakingBad123

 Also Change your passwords often

Like I had a firend and he was at the end of my freinds list then I got signed out then when I signed back in he wasn't in my firends list cause it kept saying Ive been signed out so when I saw his name I deleted him but it wouldnt work and I got signed out then I got signed back in and it said he was on 3 minutes ago then when I deleted him it worked this time and for next pass days I havent been signed out but its would be safe to change your password like my old one was jelly215 but i got a new one
