How was the hacker able to order stuff?
Is there credit card info in the account?

I think Daily Motion is not the source of your problems.

And how can it hack you by sending tons of spam?
You still have to open something.
It is like vampires: you have to let them in.

Is your daily motion password in your emails?
Or did you get a call recently from 'microsoft'?
An AppleID notification email?

I verified a call from HP on the Internet with a reverse number ID. I have had a few emails about my Apple ID being hacked. I called Apple direct to from the phone number I got from Apple's website. They verified they were scams.

My own website was hacked and hijacked and I only discovered it visiting the site when it tried to download files on the computer. I could not make changes to it. I called my web hosting company and they verified the website was hacked and hijacked to another web host. I called the domain name company and proved that I am the one paying the bills, and they moved the domain name back to my web hosting IP address. The domain name compny researched it and said a porn site stole my website to direct traffick to their sites.

I recreated the website with Adobe Dreamweaver and uploaded the pages to my site.

On the season premiere of Mr. Robot, Elliot demonstrated how to bypass web hosting companies firewalls to steal domain names where the owners won't even know they've been hacked and hijacked. Too much information on TV.

The fact that my browser protector wants to shut off DailyMotion keeps me suspicious.

Sorry for the long response. I spent the last day clearing out over two thousand spam mails from my email address. It's like a worm virus that attacks emails.

I added malware protection to my own website by the web hosting company. I'm just hoping they can beef up their firewall.

Sorry to hear about all this crap happening to you.
But it really looks like Daily Motion is not the source.
They found another way in. Used public WiFi somewhere? Installed new software?
Already tried Hitman Pro to check for malware?

(What anti-virus do you use?)

I don't think your domain name was transferred as that is a lengthy process to get it back called a UDRP (Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy). What may have happened is they were able to change the DNS, or move it to another host, etc.

I have heard of "hacking" being as simple as someone calling a hosting company and pretending to be the owner of a domain. Often times they do not even ask security questions. Make sure your are secure at your host and they are not lax with security.

I often get pissed when I call a company and the let me start asking questions about my account without any verification. Many times also, it is as simple as your email address or bithday, um, which anyone can get from social media.

Check it out and make sure you are secure at your host and they verify correctly!

WalterB, I am using Avira and Spybot.

IndieTalk, The Domain Name company recommends the Web Host beef up their firewall. I don't click on links in emails for anyone because there is too much phishing email scams out there to steal identities. I go to the website myself and contact companies myself.

There is a bullitian out about Wi-Fi even with VPN encryption not being safe for hackers to steal passwords.

Yes, I read about it.
That hacker needs to be really near you to use the same Wi-Fi network.
https is still encrypted, I remember.

WalterB,

That's true. It's best not to view private data with Wi-Fi in public places like airports just for that reason.

Looks like that between Alvira and Spybot, they rooted out the virus. Several days in a row of clean virus scans and no reoccurances.
