Victims of Keyloggers, Trojans, etc.

I just got my accounts owned by an unknown person. They stole my MF account and my PvP account with all its goods.
I had no clue I had trojans on my computer that could let someone remotely connect to my computer and see what I am doing.
I am posting this to let others know to scan your computer after everytime you download anything.
God knows I didnt and my neglect left me with nothing on D2 but a clean slate.
I wish I knew atleast, who did this to me. :p

In the former words of an idiot - I G0T PWNT!!!!1!

Heed this warning before you get PWNT!

:( It sucks. :lol:

Better advise would be: don't download any hacks or illegal third party programs full stop. It's by far the easiest way to lose everything, and they aren't even needed to play the game anyway.

I've been playing D2 since 2000, and the closest I've ever come to being "hacked" was logging in once and seeing "50 failed logins" in red.

This sentence is to inform the reader that this is a self-referential post. This next sentence has the purpose of being pointless crap. Finally, this sentence apologizes for the pointlessness of the last sentence. This sentence apologizes for the inaccuracy of the last sentence, which claimed to be final, but was nothing of the sort. This sentence. Makes. Gratuitous use. of. periods. Desperately, this sentence attempts to end the post.

But the attempt. was doomed from. the. start.

Periods. Good device. Will be used more later.

Regardless, this does show that we are a bit jumpy on here.
He didn't ask for anything did he?

No, what he basically said, was to make sure you scan any programs you choose to download...

Now before you say "but he didn't mention what programs", lets think logically. The only people who would care about stealing D2 items from someone else, are those that play D2. If these people want to use a keylogger, or some other backdoor program to achieve this, what type of program do you think they'll offer up to people?

It certainly isn't going to be a word document with info on the state of industrial relations in the world today. It's going to be D2 related, as those programs offer the best chance of getting what they want. Now, what D2 program would people be most likely to search for on the net...

Ouch. The scary part is they can take much more than Diablo accounts :eek:
... like your life.

Examples:

Turning your computer into a child porn internet database with faked evidence placed on it which will make you the scapegoat in case it ever gets revealed.

Monitoring your internet banking activities, enabling others to transfer all your wealth and the maximum agreed overdraft at an inopportune moment.

That's very descriptive.

One too many bot runs, eh?
Hm, isn't that a bit harsh, the poor dude never mentioned anything about using any bot/hack/mod? He might have been a victim of the vote-for-my-clan-by-clicking-on-this-website?

actually that's rare, as banks will pursue litigation and it is a federal crime, most likely involving the FBI. the most common however is credit card fraud, because credit card companies will not pursue the case and, if caught, the penalties are much lighter.

it's just like what i saw on a recent episode of law and order: svu: there are few, if any, toilet cam laws, but if the camera transmits sound, the perpetrator can face harsher penalties under wiretapping laws.

so, in the case of stealing your name/ss#, you were not directly victimized. however, if they electronically "break into" a bank, that's still a bank robbery.

I'd say it was a safe bet he knowingly downloaded something :uhhuh:

Here's something more pointless and way off topic to this thread.


1. read the forum rules.
2 Do not verbally abuse other forum members, if you do you will be thrown out the door faster than you can say "what hit me ?"
3. Please do not double post, you can edit any post within one hour.
4. Language, exessive language and or bypassing the word filter is not allowed, this board is viewed by all ages, so clean it up, or you are out.
5. any questions ?

I'm older than you, have been here longer, and I was showing a thread that had discussed things relevant to your thread... stuff we've all seen hundreds of times... hacks and the like aren't allowed here so the people that are apart of these forums already don't have to worry about such things. I see you lack the maturity to be civil with me on here I bet you also lacked the maturity to play a game the way it was meant to be played. Just because you don't have the patience to play a game the way it was meant to be played does not mean you have to insult me over it.

Quite the deduction you make.... I still don't see it as a good enough reason to jump on anybody? We can try to be civil around here even if others don't deserve it can't we?
