The most usual ways an account is 'hacked" are:

1.  You left Remember My Password checked on your login screen, and your roommate or a visitor to your home used your account.  Or, possibly, you gave your password to someone you trusted in SL.  In this case, there's nothing you can do, except change your password and use better security practices so it won't happen again.

2.  You fell for a phishing scam and entered your user name and password on a scammer's false website.  In this case, read the following and take action immediately:

If one of the above is not what happened to you, please update your post with more information, by clicking the Options/Edit link at the upper right of the post window.  Do not start a new thread.
