I run Nod32 (legit) don't get any warnings that being said sometimes when browsing and Im say researching something I click on a website and eset warns me its a blocked website but I don't get any virus warnings.

Apart from that nothing that really stands out, In past few months I just had a Epic games email now and again saying someone attempted in usually Brazil, or Thailand (Im guessing not their real location)

Did get one a few weeks back from Ubisoft too, and a few days ago one from Epic games again, as well as today a dating website I signed up for years ago twice emailed me "reset password" links.

My passwords are different for everything so no idea how they got my GTA one unless theres a keylogger or something?

Change your e-mail password. I got my Steam account hacked by russians twice despite having 2 factor, but after changing my e-mail password, my account was never hacked again.

Pro Tips

Use different passwords on your steam then your e-mail and change them OFTEN. In fact, your e-mail should always have a different password then EVERY SINGLE ACCOUNT you make, it should never resemble any account names you've ever made, I personally have random e-mails that people wouldn't think are legit and you should be changing it often not like "it's different so I'm good for 6 months" but "it's different so I'm changing it on the routine of once a month since these thailpeoples and Brazilians are attacking me. What you can do is abandon the e-mail account, change every account associated with the e-mail, clean install your PC, scan the file on a different computer with everything you can get your hands on, install a vpn on your new PC, install a good antivirus on your PC, transfer the file over, okay it through your AV, and don't worry about these things for the next little couple weeks.

Two factor: I personally struggle getting through two factor from time to time. Two factor means I have to go into another account or possibly phone number. Generally if it's another e-mail it's easier because you can simply go into their network and maintain access through the network and not so much the PC. Wait for keystrokes and get what you want. This is half the reason I use a router no one can connect too first as a "repeater", enable the vpn on there, and then I connect to my actual network. I still have a VPN on my PC, but I like my barriers. Outside of Windows updates and intentionally exposing myself to a friend who is better in this then me, I've never had any issues.

Here's an example, if you don't mind the laughs, make your e-mail something like abortion is cool or she likes it when I plug every hole, for all your professional institutions EXCEPT for work. Then you make your work e-mail something completely random that no one would ever guess. Then you create an entirely other random e-mail that is also sick in nature. You use the work e-mail to backup the professional ones, the sick f*** one to backup the work e-mail, and then you backup the sick f*** one with your phone number so they never actually get your info from the damn e-mail company. You could do e-mails like Chavezismyhero and Ourcountryisfullofassistedsuicide and those countries you mentioned might leave you alone. Yeah this s*** is complicated and half the reason I stick to offline gaming outside of Ubicucks and STdrmEAM. I made sure this message had DRM in it so it offends most of the users on here, I know how you guys are.

Doesn't getting an e-mail saying attempted mean they didn't get in to your account.

Something of his in the past must have gotten out and someone is just attempting every site to see if the old password still works. I get that every now and then and it usually comes in a wave of attempts. But yeah, even if it's just an attempt and not success, it can be annoying since some sites will lock your account down if they see too much fraudulent/suspicious activity.
