Am I being hacked?

18 posts in this topic

This afternoon I sync trophies in my PS3 and the color of my background changed from black to grey. It was rare but okay I changed it. Now I signed up again and my description and my languages were deleted. What the hell is happening? Am I being hacked? Or is it an error from PS servers?

 

I would say I am changing my language on my PS3 system frequently, just because I am following a melding guide for KH BBS and all information is in english so I play in english. I change to my real language (spanish) for other games. But I know it is not the cause, I am playing KH BBS since August and nothing of this happened. 

 

What do you say guys?

Change your account info just in case. I had my about me and language deleted and I heard it happened to others as well. I would say It's an error from PS servers.

Yeap I changed my password right now. Also my gmail and facebook password xD. But I doubt it, come on my password is really large and hard!! Hope it is just a PSN error.

I can't say if this doesn't mean some kind of PSN problem in general, but if I were you I'd look up if there's another console activated somewhere. If you got hacked, the hacker would have to activate to download the stuff you bought.

Can almost confirm this is a server issue. It started happening a couple of times to me after the 1-100 > 1-999 trophy level change.

If you are using the default ps3 theme, I believe that it will change / cycle between the various colours at times (I remember it changing randomly long ago, but usually I don't have the default theme on). 

 

As for the language thing, you are talking about the system language or the "about me" language? 

 

If it's the system language, it can be w bug (not familiar with it, since I only change that when I need to borrow my brother's systems, he keeps them in Portuguese, but I'm more used to have them in English). 

 

If it's the "about me" languages on psn, I have noticed that some things do get bugged out since the ps4 release (for example, the "short message that you can put on ps3 is erased). 

 

Could be some of these things going on.

Well, we all know Sony was hacked back on the day. Let's hope it is just a server issue due to high changes that come with PS5 (Trophy logos, Trophy level system etc)

It was the about me and language information for PSN. The language of my system no, I keeo changing it between my Kh bbs game and the others, just because english guides are the best and it is easier to follow the melding guide with my game in english

I actually had this happen to me a few months ago as well. Freaked me out even though nothing else was amiss and I have 2FA enabled.

 

The background color disappeared on not just my PS3's profile, but also my Vita's, and my description/about me was deleted and so were my languages. I just changed them back and they've been fine since. I've occasionally had my avatar randomly reset to the generic grey smiley face 2-3 times over the years as well.

Yeah exactly that happened to me. The avatar stay grey and generic instead of my Sephiroths avatar. The color changed from black to the generic grey.

Change your account's password and e-mail password.

After that, create a new account and send a friend request to your account, this way, you can check the last time your account was on to avoid any problems in the future.

I had the issue of sometimes being disconnected with the msg that someone else is logging in with my account but I certainly know for sure that its impossible (besides being hacked).

After changing my password the last time and updating the ps4 system it didn't happen again. 

I also thought I was being hacked every couple days :D

Wao. I already changed my password! 

People must be pro hackers to hack a PSN Account I guess

Same problem happened to me months ago on my vita.  The color of the banner turned to grey,  about me and my languages are gone. I think it is Sony problem. Havent change my password cause I have 2 step verification enable and looks like nothing strange at that time.  Everything is fine till now.

when i try to go to the ps store online it keeps sending me to the japan store but im in america lol. i log out then log back in and paste the direct link and still get redirecte to japan. so i dunno. after this last ps3 update it corrupted my main ps3 and i cant use the ps store anymore. i rebuilt the database, reinstalled the store etc. all that did was give me corrupt files. so short of reformating it its screwed i have to use a different ps3 if i need the store. these updates since the ps5 have been a bit off. i just updated rad and ps4 system software at the same time and had to reinstall apps on my ps4 after that because they all just gave black screens.

Actually had this happen to me again today. My profile colour went back to grey on both my PS3 and Vita, but my "about me" section and languages were untouched this time at least. It's a minor annoyance but I have no idea why it's happened twice for me now in one year, don't think it's ever happened for me before, or if it has, it's been so long ago that I've just forgotten.

 

Edit: Never mind, seems my "about me" has been deleted, but it was still showing on Vita initially, not on my PS4 though. Super annoying.
