    *takes Crewltail's hand and walks him over to the other nude characters that are murmuring like it was an alien invasion gone wrong* Welcome to the violated club. Just sit back wait, and they will come take care of us. (in the meantime, change your password, run all kinds of security checks, clean your computer, some would even say that it is not safe anymore throw your computer out, burn it, and buy a new one)

    Forget that last part about burning. =D

    Nah if it is only your main character that was affected, just stay off of it until it is rolled back. I am sure things will all work out in the end. Or maybe I just have the patience of Gandhi.

    So many posts about people being hacked it really makes me wonder how so many people manage.
    Just out of curiously.

    - Do you log in from different type of computers?
    - What virus scanner/anti spyware software do you use?
    - What type of firewall do you use?
    - Are you browsing websites that are not clean?
    Just to put it blunt torrent/prn/Gold sell sites or anything where 10 pop ups show up when you click it can contain a trojan.
    - Do you update your OS?

    I've seen a lot of comments about 'add ons get you hacked'.
    Other topic but well from what I read on the forums we're talking about quite an amount of people getting hacked and Rift does not allow Lua coded add ons at this point.

    Just curious how so many manage.

    - I just play Rift of 1 computer
    - It has good security on it
    - Only I touch the computer
    - Played different MMo's even the one who everyone is scared of here, never bin hacked.

    Thats about it, Ill just wait and see. I bought myself some clothes of AH and guildies helped me out, so i can return playing, but who's gonna give me back all my money?
