Blackberry Messenger. Hacked

Someone requested me as a friend on blackberry messenger. i confirmed because i wanted to know who it was.  To cut a long story short. The next time i tried loggin into facebook. I was informed that someone from an unusual place had been trying to hack my account. turns out this was around 5 mins after i had confirmed the person on blackberry messenger. Can they attempt to hack my emails too?

 

Has anyone any suggestions on what to do? ive had two email accounts configured into my blackberry too. Should i be reinstalling the software??

Re: Blackberry Messenger. Hacked

So no one hacked your BlackBerry Messenger... (which is actually impossible), you only accepted a friend. Having a friend in BlackBerry Messenger does not give anyone access to Facebook or your emails.

 

If you're afraid your email or Facebook password has been compromised, change them both.

Re: Blackberry Messenger. Hacked

Hi,

 

are you using IM+ ?

 

I've been using it, and it seems to log you into FB chat (if you are using this) in random locations around the world. Facebook detects this and then locks your account?

 

Sounds like the problem I had with FB & IM+ lite

Re: Blackberry Messenger. Hacked

No one can hack BBM. It's not possible. As said above, chat programs like IM+, and Beejive do have to get permission to log into facebook. It could be facebook's servers seeing you log in from your desktop at home, and then logging in on your device, which would show Waterloo, Canada. The sluggishness could be the app you installed or a bad boot up.

No, your BlackBerry hasn't been hacked. Not possible.

 

And you're statement "I went into a site and I noticed that all my blackberry details are shown" is about as vague as can be. What site? And what has this got to do with BlackBerry Messenger?

Sounds more like it's reading cookies from some other site stored in your PC.

Maybe your PC is hacked, your BlackBerry is not hackable.

It's never happened, maybe it will be in the future, but your's isn't the first ever.
