AVANT hacked?

Post by Canaris101 » Sun Aug 16, 2015 12:19 pm

Hello,

this little Popup annoy me... I've tried the correct PW, but he doesn't react to it. When I choose "PW forgotten", this little fuxxer tells me, that my Mail-Acc isn't correct.

This Popup appeares everytime.

Any Solutions?

Thnx.

Oh, I use AVANT with G-Chrome.
Sorry for my Spaghetti-English...

Getting the same problem since about an hour!! Same thing with the PW forgotten in the beginning, then, after a lot of tries, it finally accepted my email - still, i didn't receive any email. And now there is something new: after entering my passsword into the popup, it tells me now that someone attempted to sign in to my storage account so i should enter a verification code. Right after entering that code, it tells me again that my email and password don't match and everything starts again - password, verification code, error and so on.

I never had that problem before and i'm with Avant for many years...

Avant' online storage systems haven't been hacked to my knowledge (I've not got access to those so can't personally check). It's possible it's just a glitch with them.

Hopefully either Anderson or one of the support team will be along shortly to clarify.

Hello,

i could login to online storage, that was no problem. Only the login to the profile didn't work.
A few hours ago i got an email with a resetted password and Avant accepted it - so everything is OK again, thanks!
Still, i wonder what the issue was - should i worry about someone hacking my account?

Update: after everything was OK again, 5 minutes ago suddenly, while running, Avant asked for my password again. I reentered it and now it's fine again. Still it's strange - what is happening?

Don't worry, just running out of disk space.
