Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

'Hacked'?, I very much doubt it, the only way someone other than yourself can gain access to a PSN account is if they have the password.

Why can't people say what really happened? Really the only word they know is hacked and yet, its their own fault.

Don't be too hard of 'em. Not everyone is technologically inclined. And while you're right, becoming the victim of an attack can be prevented by alot of things on your part, but sometimes you just get hit.

Well technically it can be hacked with a keylogger when you log-in on the sony website or forums. But then again you might wonder what sites you visited and what you downloaded to get it....

In most cases people gave their pass to someone. Remember: when you give your account info to someone to gameshare you gave the account away willingly and the account belongs to that person and he can do with it as he pleases. There is no way to undo this.

Another way they can gain access is that if your e-mail account is hacked. But if your e-mail is hacked then you probably got BIGGER issues to worry about since other accounts may be tied to it.

 

Or maybe the person gameshared. :smileytongue:

Generally the latter, hence my 'usual' reponse, but yes Doppel can key-logging happen & access be gained that way?, yes it's possible, but we all know the passing of passwords from one to another for gain is the likely reason here!
