My account was hacked and two posts were made from it.
Hacker didn't change the password.
I already changed the password now to restrict access to hacker.
The two posts were on these pages-
1. http://archive.is/HDrWX
2. http://archive.is/YLeZ2
I have deleted those replies now.

Both of these posts were on these of some application SFCMachine.
I suspect 'Morantis' and 'Mocio' is the hacker since he started both of these threads and replies posted from my account were promoting that thing.

Should I do anything else than changing the passwords?

You were lucky that your password haven't changed after the person gained access to your account. You must ensure that your new password would be strong enough for the scenario to not happen again. Also, try to check whether the email address attached is still yours. It could cause a lot of problems too

And here I am wondering, why does this forum don't send any email confirmation whenever the email or other aspects of the account is changed. In that way, the true owner of the account would at least have the final card if the hacker decides to replace the email.

email wasn't changed. Admin should also enable email notifications for Logins from unusual locations or from untrusted devices.

The strangest thing here is that you won't even get notification when password is being changed.

Even if there is a notification of changing anything from your account i.e. email address and password still its useless once your password was changed you can't do anyhing after that instead you have to make a thread here about what happen. The most important IMO is to have a confirmation to your email whenever you're going to change your password likewise the email address so the hacker can't changed anything unless if he have also your email address.
