A hacker was able to hijack my YouTube channel and post spam videos and comments until the channel got terminated. (I have since gotten help and account restored)
All Google logins activity security warnings sometimes shows a person in Russia loging in and turning off 2 Factor authentication and deleting recovery phone
the device used to login and do that is always shown as my laptop.
And google reports that there could be malicious software in my laptop.
I did a windows clean install (for another reason) so now My browsers and laptop seem very clean.
I would like to know which malware is being used fo things like that.
Is it in the browser or in the laptop as a whole?
And why wasn’t windows defender telling me about such a malware ( this person had access to my account for over 2 months without me knowing)
I’m asking these questions so that I can avoid future hackings.
