Nope. What's even stranger is I had verified my e-mail address, so somebody changed the password and the e-mail address again without it even sending me a notification.

do you use no cd cracks, keygens etc... that could be infected with some trojan/keylogger crap.

Nope. Assuming I was keylogged for a second, why wouldn't they even touch any of the far more valuable things I own? And how would they change my password and email address without it sending me a verification email?

I just find it hard to believe that without there being a logger installed they were able to crack your password that fast. I still can't believe that you didn't get an email notification either.

Can't wait to hear what support has to say this time.

maybe they did, but there is that remote possibility that your e-mail might also be hacked. password/email was sent, verification e-mail was send and they replied/followed the url from the webbased e-mail portal.

That isn't possible, gmail would put up an alert saying my account has been accessed by another IP. This always happens when I log into my gmail account via tethering on my phone.
