Account hack attempt

I received an email saying we've received a request to access your account from another computer. Then i received an email from my origin account saying my email has been changed ie it's been hacked.

Worried the same will happen to my steam what should i do. I have changed my password so far

Scan your machine for malware, then change your passwords again from another machine.

Let me guess, you used the same password on all three accounts? I would recommend your email password be different from STEAM and ORIGIN. If you want extra security, make sure they are all different.

Contact Steam Support immediately. If the hacker uses your account to cheat, you will get a vac ban!
