    2)change your pw often
    3)dont download any third-party..ie..hacksoftware
    4)dont imbibe alcohol..couldnt resist hehehee.

    i think your friend is lieing....

    afew things u should know..
    his account wouldnt of been brute forced, because that would just take too much time to do....
    maybe he had a easy password to guess and was bragging about his gear...
    most likely is he downloaded a "hack" or in infected file which drops all ur items...

    btw most people will never admit when something like that above happened...
    the easiest way to choose a good password is to have numbers and symbols and letters in it... a good way to make a password is get a farily big meaningful word and change some letters with numbers.... ect u can have 3 instead of E, 5 instead of S, 8 instead of B etc... ive used the same password with the above method for afew years and ive never been hacked...

    Ah, now I know where "1337" came from.

    Yes, your friend most likely downloaded a "hack" which stole his password, and therefore his characters now have no stuff.

    Well, all those above suggestions are plausible, but...

    Some of Geglash's parties in Act 2 can get kinda out of hand, and it's not an uncommon thing to find my characters naked or pregnant or with lipstick smeared on their breast plates. So I wouldn't worry about it too much. These things can happen in the lesser known underground world of D2.

    Often people get naked when they are hot, are you sure that wasn't the case?

    Useing "1337 [email protected]|<" in your passwords isn't as secure as you may think it would be. It is so widely used now that someone that would guess "secret" for a password would just as quickly guess "S3cr3t" or any other variation possible.

    I misspell things. Funniest part is one time with an old password I meant to spell it correctly, but I didn't. That's where my inspiration to misspell came from.

    Make sure you ALWAYS have submitted an e-mail for password recovery to your account, else ANY other person could just fill in his one, and get the password. Don't know if that's what happened, but it's something that's more than just possible.
