Item "hack" or strange bug?

I was Nightmare Baaling just a minute ago with a conc barb, when I decided to check the Minion of Destruction's chance to hit me (while concing). Strangely, my Wartravs fell to the ground when I hovered over my defense.

Now, I didn't have my item screen open (then or beforehand), only my character screen. I also didn't have the wartravs "grabbed" with my mouse. I also have NEVER downloaded any third party programs other than Atma so it couldn't have been that either.

Also, my Barb is relatively low level still so Wartravs were the most valuable thing he had on at that time, and because of that the thought crossed through my mind that it could be possible that someone may have somehow used a hack to have them drop (using a maphack to see my items), since they were picked up almost as instantaneously as they dropped.

Does anyone have any idea what happened?

hm... was this in pubby game with other ppl or was it a solo thing? And did you actually lose the wartravs?

i've heard about item drop hacks but someone else has to be in the game next to you or something.

Yes, sorry, I should've been more clear (I was a bit P.O.ed). It was pubby, and at the time there was a necro standing right next to me. The wartravs were picked up as soon as they dropped, I'm assuming by the necro next to me. (only had enough time to hear/see boots drop right next to me before they were gone. I don't recall if I had time to alt and see if they were my wartravs though I'm 99.9% sure they were, because it was imbetween "waves" of baals minions...hence no monster drops...and I checked my inventory, and no boots, and I had seen them on when buying pots from an NPC before going into the portal).

Thanks for the confirmation of the existance of such a hack...I'll be more careful from now on.

I'm just glad I hadn't gotten to a higher level when that happened, or it could've been much worse.

i dont know if theres any way to avoid it or not.

but it is very very very uncommon on bnet. If someone uses it, you should copy down their accnt name and report it to blizzard because thats a very serious hack that blizz should deal with.
