My email addresses have been getting hacked 1 by 1 over a long period of time and it's not even funny.
I had 5 accounts in the past 2 years. All the passwords didn't start working even though I had them written down. (All different passwords and in a location where their not accessible even by the SWAT team )
My 4th account's password has stop working and this has got me a bit worried. The passwords haven't stopped working for no reason..
This just leaves me with one account.
The reason I have so many accounts because I kept having to make new ones when the passwords wouldn't work.
Actually scared now Watch

just do a password reset?

Do you have a firewall on your computer? Have you done a virus scan?
did you set any secret questions for the accounts?

Try changing your security question and answer too?
(I used to have a really easy one to guess and that's how someone stole my hotmail from me)

If you're using Yahoo, then it's just their standard **** service. Switch your email provider to Gmail or something with better security.

Perform a full virus scan in safe-mode and then change all your passwords If you believe your computer is still at risk, don't use that computer to change the passwords - Use a school/college/uni/library computer to do so. There's no point changing your password if there is a bug in place to keep track of those passwords. You're essentially telling them the new password as you do it.

What the guy above said, you may have a keylogger, run a virus scan.
Avast is free and pretty good if you don't have software already : http://www.avast.com/en-gb/compare-a...FYfJtAodyUUAXA

Yeah, it sounds like a virus/malware alright.

Enjoy your RAT

You most likely have a RAT or a Keylogger.
Download either Avast or Avira anti-virus and scan.

If it's over a period of two years I doubt you have a RAT or a keylogger.
Download and run this anyway, quick scan is just as good as a full scan.
That'll get rid of any malevolent things you've downloaded.
As for email I strongly suggest you switch to gmail, they're harder to crack, even if the attacker does know the password!
