WoW - The Official "Oh noes my account was hacked" Thread
Yep, so it happened to me last night. Let's all gather 'round the bonfire and share stories as they happen. How much like a real life mugging this is akin to. Whether Elysium's nonchalance is the honorable response, or whether we should get the pitchforks and dedicate our lives to fighting internet crooks. Whether it's our own fault for not caring too much about updating our passwords or buying extra insurance.
Ultimately, it was a keylogger for me. I certainly never shared my password with my closest friend, much less a random stranger promising to power-level my character. The most critical issue is whether real world information like a credit card number was compromised in the process. What are the tricks to making sure it never happens again? Any favorite spyware or virus protection? Should we wipe our hard drives clean, nuke it from orbit, just to be sure? Discuss. Or say "I told you so."
