Virus takes over all my accounts

Now my PayPal have been used to buy some videogames on MMOGA, but I have not received any confirmation email.
Now my Instagram got hacked and my account was renamed. The email address is changed now as well.

Weird thing is that I don’t get any emails about people trying to log in into my account. Not about Instagram and not about Paypal. And I have two factor authentication enabled on my PayPal account. How is this technically possible?

My passwords are fucking cryptic as well, I can’t even remember then. I keep them written down in my drawer.

How should I behave now and pretend any more damage?

Most likely your email got compromised.

* Do you reuse passwords, use the same PW on more than one site, or, change it only slightly?

>Weird thing is that I don’t get any emails about people trying to log in into my account.

* This is why they changed your email.

Sim hack is one way.

>Ross was the victim of a SIM hack, an attack that occurs when hackers take over a victim’s phone number by transferring it to a SIM card they control. By taking over his cellphone number, a hacker was able to gain access to his email address and ultimately his life-savings

Make sure your system or phone is clean? What are you using as your 2FA (phone, email ,or some app?)
