B E W A R E !!!
For virus protection installation a free malwarebytes or an effective anti-virus is a must.
For Key-logger and hacker protection, clean up of browser should be done regularly. Changing of password to a more difficult to copy should also be implemented especially to email addresses.
Maybe, this might not be sufficient and I hope technicians can do more suggestions. This could serve as a basis for Admin to help provide assistance to its members to safeguard themselves from these nemeses.
More Solutions Suggested by a Friend:--
1-Always type some additional characters in the mid , at the end , beginning of mix of this scheme.
Then select the additional(extra) characters typed in your password and Delete them from your password , to correct your password.
this way u have a better chance of deceiving the key-logger
2-If you need to use a public PC, then use a mobile password management/form filling application such as Siber Systems' Pass2Go roboform filler. Pass2Go runs off a USB memory key and protects your passwords behind a master password. Even if the master password is, it's useless to the thief unless he has your USB key, too. It's not a foolproof solution, but it will evade hacking tools that rely on capturing keyboard events .

Tips to Avoid Phishing
- Avoid entering your account information within ads. Phishers will create pages to look like this site to get your login details. Never login without navigating to our homepage first.
- Avoid clicking links or opening attachments within emails unless you know/trust that the sender is genuine. Many times phishing emails try to spoof the actual senders logo images and email copy. If you get spoof emails from Paypal or Payza you can always forward them to spoof at paypal.com or spoof at payza.com and they will take action against the phishers.
- Use good anti virus programs such as Comodo and MalwareBytes together as they can help with online protection.
- In most cases phishing in the PTC industry is done through ads. This is why you should never enter your login details of a previously joined site within a ad frame as this is likely a attempt to phish your account details.
- If you have the slightest doubt about something go with your instincts. In most cases the phishing ads have ridiculous claims like Make 1000 dollars instantly, etc.
What to do if your Account was Phished
When phiser is detected within the system it is suggested to suspend him/her until the owner sends in a support ticket to stop the phisher and to prevent further abuse on the account holders account. I would suggest logging into your account, changing your password and then looking on your login history page and scan for IPs that are logging into your account that are not yours. Once you identify IPs accessing your account that are not yours, you should take a screenshot and send in a ticket outlining which ones are not yours so that these unauthorized IPs can be banned from the server.
If you even think your account has been phished you should change your password and look at your login history which can be found on the bottom left hand menu of your account area. Login history will show you all the latest logins/ IPs / browsers that have accessed your account.
Hope this will help.
Happy Earning and Stay Safe!
