    4 months with droid, now my gmail hacked....

    and in the process, lost ALL 400 of my contacts...That's email addy's, phone numbers, physical address's...everything.

    Long story short, someone hacked my Gmail account, emailed everyone on my contact list with some spam website, and of course everyone's email addy's available for everyone to see. So I checked my droid, all contacts still listed, cool....But then checked my Gmail account, ALL contacts GONE!.

    Figured I could sync my droid back to my Gmail account, but when I did...POOF....ALL contacts lost from Droid and Google. FRUS-TER-A-TING!!

    How did this happen...and does anyone have any help for the future, of not having this happen again.? Lucky I was able to upload contacts from an old BB I had, so I only lost about 85% of my contacts and info.....but it's the spamming of everyone on my list, and all THERE emails being spammed and most likely sold....sickening.

    Any advice?

    It's likely, of course, that someone who knows you is the culprit. But even if that is the case, I'd suggest reporting the incident to Google. They may be able to help you, but even if they cannot, if you believe this was done by someone who didn't have your google account login/password, Google will want to know about it.

    ive been locked out of my gmail account twice in the past 2 months to the point where ive had to fill out the form to have my password reset.

    not only that, ive had my google talk conversations forwarded to indviduals that need not see that and have had friendship/relationship issues spark up because of that

    yesterday is the most recent day that ive been locked out and had to change my passsword.

    ive had my gmail account for 5 years prior to this, never had any issue. wtf is going on?

    Were you using internet explorer? There's malware out there that takes advantage of holes in IE to do it's dirty work. Might want to run software from malwarebytes.com to check things out.

    One set of malware is called "Anitivirus 2010", I think. That's not antivirus software, that's the name of the virus.

    if you login to gmail on your pc and scroll all the way down to the bottom there is a spot that says:

    Last account activity: 1 hour ago at this IP (98.118.xxx.xxx). Details

    might be worth looking at ?
