Hacking Recovery

Posted by Nathan, 10 July 2012 · 3,863 views

So I was hacked a few days ago, when I found out I planned on getting rid of all my stuff and starting a new account, Thankfully everyone in the cc at the time discouraged me from doing that and I decided to atleast wait till I had calmed down (it wasn't just the being hacked thing either there were a few other things that were on my mind as well, it was just the thing that sent me over the edge). I was so unable to think straight that even though i suspected it was a keylogger or something I hadn't done any virus scans and it was only when someone in the cc insisted I clean my computer that I actually went and did it.

As expected it was full of malware, hopefully I got rid of all of it. So for the last few days I've been changing all my passwords, creating different email addresses for different things (previously it all ended up in one place) which was a priority since my credit card and stuff could potentially have been at risk. Still working on a few things to make sure its as secure as possible but so far I think I'm pretty safe.

So yeah...I'm not going to quit runescape, in fact I'm not even going to create a new account (or atleast not as my main) and I can't thank you guys who were discouraging me from doing that the other day. Its going to take a while to recover since they took everything that was decent, all my money, my dragon hatchet (which was my main source of income), 2 sets of rune armor (one trimmed), dragon helm, platelegs, scimitar, dagger++, EVERYTHING. There's one place that I don't think they've checked that might have a decent amount of valuable stuff, so I'm really hoping thats fine.

Its kind of ridiculous how thorough they were. I mean they managed to log in as me in a few seconds (which is stupid surely Jagex should be more suspicious of someone logging in as me on a completely different computer with a completely different IP as 5 seconds ago and every other time I've logged in) and I had logged back in within 10 minutes, I still have no idea why they left me with a heap of seeds and bird nests in my inventory as well as giving me a few emeralds, I mean its nothing compared to what I had but why bother doing that?

Oh well, I'll try and log in soon but I'm going to be a lot slower for a while and it might be hard for me to get back into it but I'll do it. (Plus uni starts back next week :wallbash:[edit: no it doesn't it starts back in a bit over a week from now.]




Hackers deserve to die in a hole and be set on fire. They are bad, bad people. Sorry to hear what was done to you.
Once I make some money, I'll help you get back on your feet. Never had a problem with hackers before, but I've died with valuable items and appreciated everybody else who helped me. And by everybody else, I mean Henry.

TL;DR: PREPARE FOR FREE GPZ!

For some reason I never got notified of these messages so I only just noticed them now.
Anyway thanks guys, I'm almost to the point where I can make a reasonable amount of money myself now.
Yeah you have to set up your notficiations so it will notify you of blog comments. I think the default set up doesn't.
