Moved. Why?

Post  Ayvaen on Thu May 22, 2008 10:20 am

Several reasons really. I like the flexibility that PHPBB3.0 offers, but
mainly because this board has no ads and the old was a security threat.
I don't want to be responsible for any members getting hacked. Check
out this thread:

Also, to be added to the list to see various sections of the forum, click the "usergroups" link along the bar at the top of the page, then find the particular group you think you should be added to and request to be added. I'm sure everyone can figure out what groups they belong in. Please do not apply for a group you don't belong in, while you might think it's funny, I'm sure half of you were thinking of doing it when you read this, and that'd be an enormous mess for me to wade through. afro





...I just love the 'fro.

I got hacked :(

Post  Tryscut on Sat May 31, 2008 11:31 am

Just a heads up that I got hacked yesterday at 5:00pm est while I was on. Not saying that it was the old site or anything but I did notice a trojan alert either Sunday or Monday and had to restart my computer to get rid of it...but I never changed my password for the game after that. (I usually change it the 1st of the month). So if you get any kind of alert on your computer change your FFXI password immedietly to protect yourself.

I probably will not be doing Dynamis Windurst Sunday since I have no gear that's not R/E and would be gimp Sad
SE had me do an inventory on what's missing and it wasn't any fun logging back in and seeing that you have been raped. Now I have to call SE back with that info and begin the process of being restored (I hope).

Hope to see everyone soon and please take every precaution to protect your accounts.

Oh, man, Tryscut, I'm so sorry :c I'm glad SE's gonna restore your stuff, that's enough to make a person want to stop playing. ... I feel like I should go make a list of all my stuff now >.> Hope you get it all back fast. /patpat

I am sorry to hear that your Account got hacked Try. ;; I have a tip for all those who don't want to be hacked. Which I am sure you all don't. <.<

(Please Note: This may sound like a matter of personal preference but I can assure you that this isn't the case.)

If you surf the internet a lot. Use Mozilla Firefox instead of Internet Explorer. (Read: Exploder) You can get that here. Along with that you can download plugins for it. Especially a nice FFXI one that has all different kinds of Info readily availible and stuff at the click of a button. But that's not what I posting about. =P The ones you need to have are "NoScript" and "AdBlock." NoScript basically blocks any kind of code/flash/etc that may contain the harmful trojans and what have you on a web page unless you specifically allow it. Ie It will block YouTube videos but you can allow it using the pop up tool bar at the bottom. AdBlock goes further to enhance your security by blocking the dodgy advertisements you see on various FFXI related websites. Not to mention it makes surfing the web that little bit more tolerable. =D

Download links ~ NoScript Adblock

I'm sorry for all the people that were effected by this and I hope that no one else has to deal with any more account hackings in the near future! RMT: SCUM! We can beat them! =D

It's not just FFXI-related sites anymore.

A couple weeks ago, I was reading one of my wrestling sites. All of a sudden, the bar says something is being downloaded from a site in China. It turns out the website (which was reputable and has been for the last 10+ years) was hacked into. It downloaded a Trojan and an Exploit onto my system.

Fortunately for me, I play on PS2 and don't use that godawful POL Online LS Community or whatever the hell it is, so my info wasn't compromised.

It sucks. Now we gotta live in fear that the sites we thought were safe aren't.

This is the Trojan

Post  Tryscut on Sun Jun 01, 2008 11:57 am

This is the Trojan Horse found on my computer and many others that got hacked:

c:\windows\system32\smart.dll

Check your pc's to make sure you don't have it.

Like I said Norton found it but it was too late because I didn't change my password.
