I logged in today to find that all my hard worked plat got wiped from my acct. Now I'm trying to change my info on the website and I guess whoever is behind the whole thing got to my account before I did because now I can't change any of my info or passwords. Epic fail!!! I have no idea how this happened, I don't go to those "buy rift gold" places who spam your in-game mail box. This bites because now I have no coin on my character. I worked my *** off for that plat.

See the post directly above yours: There is an issue, it's being fixed. When it is fixed, there will be more information.
I was nervous about writing such a gratuitously suck-up post when I first saw Manwitdaplan's original post about finding the loophole.
I don't know the details, it's frankly none of my business, and while the last you thing need is potential stalkers but...
It does appear you found something and, if so, I hope they reward you with a free lifetime membership.
Oh, and Mastasquidge...apology accepted (in advance).

I feel like this might be a bot/hacker account attempting to look innocent.
Personally, I think the Coin Lock idea is great... And it works well. Far too well.
See, here is my problem: My account has been Coin Locked, even though I haven't played it anywhere else, and nobody else has been on my account. Exactly like the patch notes say, I'm unable to access the Auction House, send mail, sell items, Salvage, Runebreak, destroy items or trade. I also got the e-mail with the code to deactivate it.
What's the problem? I have nowhere to deactivate it. I have searched everywhere, relogged multiple times, tried logging on all of my characters, searched through every last bit of the menu... And still, no place to deactivate it. In essence, this practically makes me unable to play - Sure I can still kill monsters and do quests, but what is the point of doing so with a full inventory? I like to make a little profit as I play, instead of being unable to even loot, causing me to miss out on both money and gear I happen to find.
Dear employees of Trion, if you read this, let me tell you that I love the system itself. Yet, please refrain from releasing features like this into the live servers before the bugs are weeded out. WoW made the exact same mistake, and it's one of the (many) reasons that I quit that game. I'd suggest a hotfix to settle this issue - Promptly.
You tube it and put it on reddit or something if not here , because I don't believe you.

Consider the possibility that there are attackers who have not yet figured the exploit out. Now consider also that the hole isn't patched yet. What do you think would happen if detailed instructions were posted?
Hey Trion guys, I know you're reading these posts...
I logged in naked and coin locked just now.
I'll keep the background short but I'm a web developer and finishing my university studies in software engineering. I understand what phishing is.
I use chrome, win7 fully patched and MSE for redundancy.
The only times I ever entered my rift credentials online were
1: when I created the account and purchased it with paypal,
2: ~1 hour ago on trionworlds.custhelp.com (which says my account is disabled)
3: just now to post this (first time on the forums)
Um..Click the huge red button that shows you that you are COIN LOCKED?

I was also hacked last Sunday. But since then I borrowed a couple plat from a guildie to buy some crap greens on AH, did some quests for some more plat, bought more gear, and then within the night I was running FC and KB with no problem.

This option isn't ideal, but getting hacked in no way stopped me from playing my main and enjoying the game. Sorry you wasted a whole week...
Thats ok, I am playing on a computer in which I have only visited 1 website www.riftgame.com (got it 4 days ago) and I got hacked. I was fighting with the hacker for about 20 minutes logging me in and out, even had my brother change my password while I was fighting him.. But due to the incompetent fools who designed the login system, he was able to continue doing it, then he eventually got bored and deleted my character. Why in gods name do we not have to completely relog (Retype username and PW) when disconnected or login from diff location. Not to mention I now get to wait 2 days now to play a game I paid 60$ for.
Secondly, you came up with the coin lock system... WHY NOT ADD THE FUNCTION OF NOT BEING ABLE TO DELETE A CHARACTER TO THE STUPID USELESS SYSTEM. BTW my account didnt come up coin locked until AFTER minutes of battling the guy to login and after he deleted my character and then I made a new one so I could submit a ticket, which has gotten me no where btw. Such a good system.
Lets take a look at it from a players POV:
My account gets hacked, they sell all my gear items etc. But I still have my toon. I have to wait 1-3 days for a ticket to even get looked at, then another 1-3 to get results.
My account gets hacked my character gets deleted.. SAME RESULTS! The people who are in charge of the security of this game need to get fired.. like FAST! This game is so fun.. but to spend money to play a game I wont get to play but 1-2 times a week... not gonna happen. I forsee alot of people quitting soon.

They probably will, but I think their first pass did not take into account the possibility that attackers would act purely destructively rather than for some kind of gain.
