It seems this account has been hijacked by someone in Brazil - I cannot change the email or password back, please can this be reverted?

I can only access this now as I was left logged in on another computer.

Thanks.

You should definitely not contact support directly. You should actually create a separate thread on every single forum so you can expand your concerns.

Don't even go to support. What would they even do for you? xD

Too many people use the same username and password for more than one site. All it takes is hacking one of them to get access to all the others where they used the same...

Two factor authentication would solve the problem, but since that's not an option so far, people need to take on the responsibility themselves and at least have different passwords.

Check out https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and see if you're vulnerable...
