Loose Hanger

My gears have been skipping heaps lately and i thought it is because of a worn chain/cassette but on closer inspection, it turns out its just my loose hanger letting my derailler move from side to side.

The bolt holding the hanger on is tight, the hanger is not bent (only about 6 months old) but it still wobbles.

Has this happened to anyone? Anyone know if i can do anything to fix it without getting a new hanger?

I'd check for paint that has cracked and is sandwiched between the derailleur and frame keeping it from properly tightening down on the frame. (happened to me once)
