Dear Representatives, I recently noticed that I may have been hacked. I backed up, formatted and reinstalled windows 10. I just went on your site to add a friend to share files and found the following link in two of my folders. I accidentally clicked on it once. I changed my password right after this. Could you have your security/admin search your user files and see if this may be in other's folders and when they were place and by whom. Your security team should also ensure that this link does not compromize your system or user's computers. My Kaspersky did not complain, but i did not play the video either. The link is: [link removed by moderator]

 

Thank You'William [personal information removed by moderator]

The link you posted is only valid to you while you're logged into your account. It's not valid for anyone else that clicks on it.

 

If you feel your account has been compromised, you should not only change your password, but you should also verify that there are no unknown devices or sessions on your Security page.

Thank You!. That helps a lot. Now I have to check about Microsoft Office Online, which I do not use. How do I unlink it?? I am going back to read the Read More about Linked Apps

You can review and unlink apps from your Connected Apps page.
