Almost 99% of the time someone claims they've been "hacked" they'd either:
a.) Made a very unsecure password that ex-boyfriends et.c could guess
b.) Written it down on a paper somewhere (usually next to the computer)
c.) Told someone who promised not to tell anyone but did
...or got caught on one of the pop up screens. I've encountered it before on here where you will click a page and suddenly need to "login", but it really is just a popup. Lots of users on here fall into that trap, though I believe measures have been taken to prevent it from happening.
