I was hacked. Any ideas?

Recommended Posts

So my pc isn't infected, and my email hasn't been pwned, as far as I can tell at least. Has there been a database leak from somewhere RS related recently? He didn't access my email, but he changed my password and my email on the account, stole around 50m, and wrote "ty, for, bank" by adding those three names to friends. RIP.

Having unique passwords for all the services you use online will make you immune to database leaks. If you aren't already doing this, I would highly advise it.

As far as I know, the only way to change the email attached to your RS account, is to make a request on their website and confirm the change from the old email account. Make sure that your email (or entire system) hasn't been compromised as well.

 

If you have recently downloaded RuneLite make sure that you did so from the right place.

I use unique emails for my RS accounts, I thought that would keep me safe. Now after it all happened I'm unsure if I actually ever registered my email on the account. Like verified it and all. Might be how he "changed" the email so easily.

Maybe he has your information and recovered your account?

 

That's a possibility, the only thing I ever used that email for, was the RS account, and to buy a fire cape. (Didn't change the password after receiving fire cape) So kind of asking for it.

Yeah was probably a recover if they changed your email, unless they have access to your email

 

I'm not 100% that I had verified my email on the account, so maybe there wasn't one attached at all. I'm 50/50 on a database leak, or the person who did my fire cape saved the info. 

 

Either way, it's probably my fault.

I had my account hacked after purchasing fire Cape long ago, so that might be it. It was from rskinggp

    • Over the past few months, I’ve been working diligently on a new project - TRiBot X. Everything has been written from the ground up, with all of the best practices of software engineering. Every aspect of TRiBot has been re-imagined to support three main goals: flexibility, useability, and reliability.

    • Come give us feedback on the next version of TRiBot!

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

      Love,

    • Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!

      Why?

      Increased reliability - less server errors


      Increased availability - less downtime


      Increased security - keeping us and you secure


      Increased capacity - ability to serve you better


      Increased speed - less waiting for things to load


      Faster development - server and service updates will come faster


      What are the changes?

      Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service)


      Distributed computing


      Load balancing


      Git management of server files and filesystem


      Redis caching


      How?

      AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances)


      AWS ElastiCache (Redis)


      AWS Load Balancing


      AWS EFS (Elastic file system)


      Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.

      Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.

    • This release will:

      Fix prayers and world hopper API (Thanks @JoeDezzy1 and @erickho123)


      Improve banking API (Thanks @Encoded)


      Adds methods for returning and using Java Lists, rather than arrays


      Slightly randomizes some hardcoded behaviour


      Removes sleeps from waitConditions; the efficiency saving potential is negligible in these use-cases, therefore cleaner code is preferable


      Other back-end improvements





      Note: If you are using LG, please restart both the RS client and TRiBot.
