Enyce has been hacked! Tried to log in on Christmas and couldn't, come to find out... Redriann informed me that he can see me logged in on IFRIT! Trying my best to stay calm. But i am so pissed right now ; ;




* to everyone in Tactics, my Game life has been murdered. I've been hacked and SE says "I'm sorry sir, is there anything else I can help you with"

Four years shot!

pay more attention to what your doing on the intraweb.

#1 Anyone have your account info?
#2 Updated antivirus on your computer?

Actually did you sign up at cannotlinkto or ffxiah.com and give any of your login info? Or did you download anything from them? These two sites are currently suspect in THEIR being hacked/having phishing/malware/spyware that is allowing people to get the logon info of the site's members.

Here is a link to somepage with a formal apology on their top page:


FFXI Somepage Website Top Page


And for those who don't want to even surf over there I quote:

"ffxi.cannotlinkto Site Security
Posted by: Cuer - Wed Dec 19th, 2007 02:29 am EST

We have recently had two issues with security on this site, that deserve mention. The first involved a spam link that had been nefariously inserted into one of our news listings, that directed to an unsavory site. The link was removed, and steps have been taken to prevent further attacks of that nature.

We have also had some spam in the comments, from people linking to alleged fishing bots and other such programs, that were designed to steal FFXI accounts. Those comments have been removed, and further effort put into weeding them out if they show up down the road.

We take security seriously, and appreciate everyone who let us know about these issues. If you see any other problems like these, don't hesitate to leave feedback letting us know.

In other news, we do have some updates coming that will expand the item database, and add various useful guides. These will arrive in the new year. Happy Holidays!"

That is how it is happening easily to people on PS2's so easily.

I truly feel for you... I panicked when this all started happening and have begun to change my password almost weekly (to an uber hard/long password) and to not give ANY of my player data (namely login info) to ANY site. Even the POL website until SE changes their security about password changes online (thru POL) and their account reclaim/verification process.

thats just it, I've ever given my info to any site or so, I have visited these sites due to thier helpfulness. And as far as that statement to pay more attention to what i do, whats that all about?? I'm no fool, i don't give out important information, and I Don't download nor allow popups to just start downloading. It happened unawares.

As of now, I'm just screwed basically. SE told me to file a report with the authorities here and I did, but now I wait. I know My character is probably being stripped, I just hope to get the 4 years I put into that Character back!

Dom told me what happened. Smiley: frown At first I thought you had just changed servers without saying anything... Really really sorry to hear about that, man.

Yea I wouldn't have changed servers without saying good bye. It's really sad how the SE policy as it stands has my hands tied. I've filed the report, told them about the problem, ranted a bit and now I just sit back and wait. If it turns out that I can never return with Enyce, I hope you all NEVER experience this problem and continue to enjoy the game.




Missing you all,
Enyce
