Hacked Off!

Today is a bad day.  I am still stuck working at home.  I did not get any sleep last night and this morning I check my world of warcraft account to see if my auctions had sold……

ACCOUNT HACKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is a new lvl 1 pally char and my two mains have empty bags no gold and I am no longer in my guild.  I had full guild bank access…. Yea that truly sucks.  I do not give a damn about my gold and my bags and my bank…. the guild bank on the other hand.  That just pisses me off, and embarrasses the hell out of me.

HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN?

I am vigilant with my pc security.  I did not respond to any phishing messages or emails.  I immediately ran malwarebytes and my system is clean.  I was just saying a couple days ago how I have been playing wow for years and never had an account security issue.

I have done everything I can right now.  changed the account password, informed the guild leader of the account breech. scanned my pc, and informed ingame support about the unauthorized access.  Now I sit and wait.  I wait for my guild mates and good friends to discover what happened.  I am also waiting for blizzard support to restore all items.

I have lost no real property, even the game materials will be returned to pre hacked status.  Blizzard is good about that kind of stuff.  This is all my fault and I have lost my dignity more than anything else.  I was arrogant.  I do not need an account authenticator.  I am smart about this stuff…. pride and hubris.  To my guildmates and friends I am so sorry and I will be getting an authenticator ASAP, they are only $6.50 and some measure of security.

I have had other friends and guildmates get their accounts hacked.  I always figured that they were somehow at fault.  They responded to a phish, purchased gold, gave their account info to someone  downloaded porn or music filesetc.  Yea those are a guaranteed way to get your account hacked, but I have done none of that.  I thought I was secure and that it would never happen to me.  To those of you who I blamed… I apologize… I deeply apologize.

I have no clue how it happened…. where was the breech?  oh god I am so sorry.  This hurts.

Ikcewicasa means common man in Lakota. I guess that describes me. I am turning 40 next year. I have a college degree and I have a professional job. The blog is just random stuff. I try and keep most of my posts humorous in nature sprinkled with a bit of American Indian items, soundtracks (which I love), food (something I also love) and movies (when I have the money and time to go see them. so basically ramblings that rattle around in my mind. Hope you enjoy. Like what you read? comment and re post. don't like what you read, let me know as well. ALL STORIES ON THIS SITE ARE ABSOLUTELY TRUE... EXCEPT THE PARTS I MAKE UP!
