Hacked forum account

FYI,

My PC(s) were recently hacked and thus my forum account was hacked. The hacker has been creating lots of havoc. I haven't posted in the forums for at least 30 to 60 days prior to today. Any threads, replies, and privates messages during that time are fraudulent. I've already changed my password and sent a private message to the Single Player Forum moderator in regard to this.

Re: Hacked forum account

That's awful, I'm glad you got your account back. Any ideas how your account got hacked in the first place?

I'm confused though, the person who hacked your account made seemingly normal posts. Couldn't (s)he just make his(her) own account? :ponder:

Oh, and welcome back! :crazyeyes:

Re: Hacked forum account

Why would someone hack your account to post on a D2 forum? Oo

Hackers don't do that ;d

Oh, so you aren't actually interested in group jello wrestling. Good to know. :evil:


Have fun with your new stay here.

I can't provide much detail a the moment as the incident is still being investigated. However, I can tell you that the people involved have gone to great lengths to inflict maximum damage to me (personally/professionally/financially) and several others connected to me. Its great that I'm able to log into this site/forums as there are several other sites where my accounts were banned due to many ToS violations by the hacker(s).

Sounds like a very interesting story.

He got banned by violating multiple ToS on other forums but here he posted in a thread, pretending to be another individual, knowing the context of the thread title and having some knowledge of Diablo 2.

I must say it sounds exceptionally elaborate.
I mean, a hacker posting a mat thread?
And picks up a lot of loose ends (and ties them to a nice little knot) in another persons intro thread with a reply that seems to be (and would make complete sense if it was-) posted by the OP?

Also, you should probably ask Elly if she can help (if Thyiad hasn't already done so).

Re: Hacked forum account

Quite a lot of damage and chaos can be created through impersonation.

Edit: The mat thread was from a partially composed email message (a brain dump) sent to myself. It was posted with modifications to look authentic. Anyway, they succeeded in tarnishing my reputation and spreading doubt.

Re: Hacked forum account

Quite a lot of damage can be done through impersonation but the point we're trying to get at is - they didn't damage your reputation at all and didn't post anything at all wrong except to round off a thread by someone else as though they were them.

Maybe they have a vested interest in D2 ^^

edit - I'm not doubting you were hacked by the way. But the person who impersonated you obviously has a lot of issues and this sounds like a personal vendetta more than anything. Time to start drawing out a list of all the people you may have upset?! :)

Re: Hacked forum account

While I agree that the posts made here weren't very suspicious, I don't quite understand why someone would lie and say their PC was hacked in to. I hope you can repair the damage that's been done Mantis. Luckily nothing bad happened here.
