Am I hacked?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

 

Hello! I have been on my pc for 4 hrs today and about 1 hr was on reddit. I just got on my phone and found out that I had joined a subreddit wich looks shady and seems like spam.

 

r/digitalmunition

 

No idea what this is. I am concerned I am backdoored. There is no way I joined in accident since I've never seen this subreddit.

Seems very unlikely you are hacked.

 

However it is best to practice good security measures, such as turning 2FA on on all of your accounts and having a good antivirus program installed.

 


Please mark as helpful and informative so my profile looks better.

quote or reply to me if you want me to reply to you.

Thanks

Reddit will add you to communities you're not a part of in some situations, like opening a post from that community or accidentally viewing it when in recommended communities. And most subreddits are sketchy when they're 10k or less users.
Also what @Mad153 said, practice safe internet security.

I've been added to some pages that I've been visiting as well. Turns out it's a bug. As seen here on this page:

So... someone "hacks" you just to make you join a random subreddit? Come on now...

 

The unfortunate truth is that if you were actually hacked (as in someone stole your credentials) you'd probably never find out unless they changed your password and stole your account completely.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Yea. I currently have malwarebytes since I honestly find it a waste to buy an AV. I was thinking of generating a password using Dashlane or Keeper. Thanks!

Oh, then it might've been that. Although I have also been having spotify log ins from Unknown Region.

When in doubt just change passwords, and be sure to use different passwords for different accounts, write them down or use a password manager like RoboForm, that way if one password is compromised, the whole lot isn't.
