Ok, let me add some advice here on how to be safe with your system if your an MMO gamer, because RMTing today is serious buisness and accounts can be worth upto thousands of dollars for these people, literally.. Rules to Online Gaming: 1.
Never click any links in emails, EVER! 2.
Don't be cheap and rip games/movies off torrents. Just buy the real thing and support your countries industries. 3.
Don't be cheap and use *free* virus scanners......Just buy the real thing and support the industry. 4. ALWAYS
double and tripple check the URL of a link you are about to click and cross reference it with the *official* URL's of the site. Watch for simple changes like for example: http://se.enixs.com
There wil always be a subtle change in there that will not correspond with it and when in doubt, copy the URL and google/yahoo search it. 5.
Use passwords and login details that use up the entire character space allocated. Make them nothing to do with you what so ever. Make sure they use !@#$%^&*()_+ incorporated in the password and login name at some point if not several.
Now lets get the terminology right. There is no such thing as being *hacked*. Your allowing someone access to your system via not understanding how malware/spyware works OR being lazy by clicking on things willy nilly without checking what your clicking first.
I mean sure, RMTer's could potentially make a program to *hack* people, but the complexity and varibles involved with peoples different ISP's, the constant updating of virus programs and modem firewalls would be a monumental achievement to keep up with that its easier and cheaper for them to *trick* you into giving your details to them.
Like the old saying goes, why break something that works. Tricking people into getting thier details is obviously working and it's not just gaming that this happens in but also online banking etc. Edited, Nov 19th 2010 10:07pm by Taemek
