    I have login notifications ON, which means when someone tries to access my account from an unknown device, then they need a log in code which they will need to verify in order to proceed.

    When I check on my 'Current Sessions' in Account Settings, it says I am currently logged on in two sessions, one here in Singapore, and one in Birmingham, UK from the 24th Feb!

    Now, I was in Beijing on Feb 24, where Facebook is banned, so it cannot be a case of me accessing Facebook on my Blackberry at an airport on free wifi, or something.

    I have ended that session and now am logged on from 1 place only (i.e. here).

    But coupled with the fact that my email was hacked the other day, I am getting a bit pissed off with everything. Is Norton antivirus a complete waste of time? It is supposed to protect me from this kind of thing, no?

    Nope.

    Your password was probably really poor. e.g. no capital letters, numbers, probably used a dictionary word?
