This might be the case, but be aware that the time between me changing the password and the hacker starting the last game was around 12 hours. Maybe they just let the launcher run all this time, but even in this case I would expect some security measure to take effect!
Or they had the launcher open when you changed the password, then changed it themselves AFTER you did. That way, they still had the valid password.
I guess the real question is, was your original email address and/or password one that you also used on other another account somewhere? If yes, then that's a clue.
