    Exclamation *Can a person hack into and delete your MySpace account?*

    If so, who?
    And how do they do it?

    What can you do to prevent it from happening?

    it's possible.

    some things you can do to stay safe : don't give your login details out to anyone, change your password frequently (like once every couple weeks), do frequent spyware/virus scans (download a couple programs from lavasoft.com called AVG and ad-aware), use a different password for different things (like password for myspace is different for your e-mail), always double check the URL before you type your login details (only type your login in on myspace.com, if you start clicking links on pages, you can get to a site that looks similar to myspace but isn't really myspace, and then if you type your login info there it goes to someone else.. that's how they hack into your account).

    hope this helps.

    And some people will send deceptive messages which say things to flatter you or make you curious, and these people will provide links in those messages. DO NOT click on these links.

    So basically (and sorry if this sounds offensive),
    if you're intelligent and are used to MySpace and it's quirks, you're pretty safe?

    That's what I've gathered up.

    yep, pretty much. although you still want to be sure to do virus scans once in a while... even if you're intelligent, it's always possible spyware can somehow manage to get installed. as long as you have at least some brains though, you'll be fine.

    Also, if someone has a vendetta against you and they are more intelligent in the technological field...well...everything has a backdoor. There's also toys that try to force logins, too.

    There are very few, even intricate, ways to actually "hack" a website. MySpace has solid coding in the fact that it uses ColdFusion, instead of just HTML and PHP.

    Most instances of "hacking" that you hear with MySpace is actually just social engineering. The "hacker" finds out the right information from the target and then proceeds to guess their login.

    This biggest thing to avoid someone getting in your account and deleting it or changing it is going to be (other than not giving out info) is making sure you type in your info on the correct web site. People have set up a site that looks just like myspace.com but there is like one or two lil tweaks that people do not pick up, This is phishing (i believe). Also if you are logged in to mypace already and you click on a link that says "you must be logged in". DO NOT ENTER INFO again here. This is one of the places they will get your login info. Just make sure you login to the actual site. If you have a feeling that it might be the wrong site dont enter info there. Do this and change password often and you should be fine. Like others have said if someone wants to get into your account they can.

    someone hacked into my account(not myspace). and he/she got nothing but my email address. So nothing to worry about. If you really want to know how they do such thing, try to be a hacker! And try to hack into your own website! Strong password could prevent stupid hacking. but if they're pros, you have to change password every day.

    Corruption ends civilization and vice versa.

    if someone wants to hack your myspace, they will

    your best bet is to not piss off hackers, or anyone from 4chan

    Everyone from 4chan is nothing more than a tool and an idiot being controlled by someone else, the usual source of "hacking" and phishing is ebaumsworld, in all honesty.

    Also, I'd like to take this time to make a PSA: at the very least make sure your email password is completely unique, don't use it anywhere else! Password tables get dumped all the time, and not all website administrators are trustworthy, web forums are especially dangerous due to the frequency at which they are exploited.
