    Just another of many scams and hacks out there. Which is why I normally do not trade at all ... and at that I will only let others in my guild or trustable people from here see what I am using.

    Anyway, be careful when cutting and pasting stuff, even though you edited the profanity out, All **** would be better, as it looks like you are attempting to bypass the word filter...which I bet in this case you are not.

    Better safe than banned or something.

    Said poster probably downloaded some third party crap. It is impossible to control somebody's cursor without a third party script running on the scamee's computer.

    oi.. i second the motion on the good hack proof'ness on the WoW servers.. which they should seeing as it won't be free.. and they'll loose a lot of customers if they don't keep up with the demands..

    O/T usu... that cat is tripping me the frick out..

    Obiviously. I always forget ppl do still download those things. Actually ppl who download things like that are getting what they deserve, imo.

    Definetly not going to bypass the world filter. Didnt think possibilty that it wouldnt filter ulgy words :|

    I agree with Usufruct. I configure gateways/routers/remote access/VPN as part of my job and for remote access to work successfully, there has to be an established "session" connection between the two computers (the one controlling and the one being controlled). This requires authentication/authorization on the computer that's being remotely controlled which can be easily obtained through a 3rd party application that is actually contains trojan code.

    The scamee most likely downloaded a trojan because if what he is saying is true and he did not download anything, then we shouldn't only be worried about playing diablo on bnet but basically anytime we are online. Now that is scary.

    One last thing: the only way that anything can be 100% Hack Proof is for it not to be connected to anything else. Once something is on the Internet, with knowledge, tools and patience almost anything can be hacked. Remember that kid who hacked the Pentagon many many years ago? I doubt Blizzard's servers are anywhere as secure as the Pentago's systems.

    Its true...nothing is hack proof. If this story is true, it wasnt DiabloII that was hacked it was the guys computer. And even to do that the hacker would have to know the IP address of the computer. Which I dont believe is possible to find out on Battle.net. There must have been some sort of 3rd party software. and if there was...it wasnt very good....because I yu were to create something that forced the remote user to hit the trade button. you wouldnt do it like that....you would just have the computer send the command to battle.net that says to accept the trade. you would not see the cursor moving on the screen.

    This happened to me once within 2 years of battle.net;I hadn't any hacks downloaded and yet someone had managed to control my curser as i was watching my stash,then i hit escape..and that's all i could do;i still don't know how it is possible to do it,but it's possible without any hacks!
    Believe me or not ,but what has happened to me is not a lie
