Once my account in a Minecraft server has been hacked. The price of the account was over $60 with all the ranks, in-game money and items it had. But the server got shut down like a week after that and I wasn't mad at all. 
Now that is a real bummer! On another note, it also sucks when you spend money on Minecraft server and a month later the admin stops paying the bills when the donations start slowing.

Yes, many years ago when I played Diablo II, I got hacked because I trusted some "friend" downloading a thing. It was kind of stupid from my part, and he scammed me a lot of valuable items :(
What file was it that you downloaded? Sounds like the download was obviously an set up to infect your PC with a virus. I wouldn't call them your friend, but did the person use a remote hacking tool to take over your computer? What Anti-Virus did you have at the time of this incident?

Nope. ALWAYS use an authenticator(Two Factor Authentication) and a very secure email password, your accounts are all in the hands of your email for the most part.
Do you have any other advice on how to prevent hackers from gaining access to your accounts? How regularly should I change my password? Thank you in advance for any tips, tricks or advice you can offer me.
