ICQ Hacked

    Since I had several other rares dealers on my ICQ, posting this here.

    Not sure how, but as it states above. I have exhausted my methods of trying to get it back under my control. Yes, have multiple firewalls and virus protection.

    If you get any messages asking you to do anything, borrow anything, links or whatever... it is NOT me. Please spread the word to help keep those in this community safe. Thank you.

    I just got some strange uo site link from the last person I would expect to spam that. I am afraid he mustve gotten his icq hacked too.

    Repeat with me: Don't go to any sites you have not heard about before.

    Assia, how old is your ICQ number?

    My original ICQ number, 6840996, was originally linked to a very very old hotmail username before hotmail made it to hwere you can't register a username that went inactive. An unscrupulous individual created the hotmail account (it had been inactive for many years) and used that method to steal my ICQ # to get a password sent to them >.<

    Also, if you are using ICQ Pro 2003, get rid of it. IT was the "full-featured" version contemporary with ICQLite 4. Those older versions of ICQ (especially Pro 2003) has P2P elements in them that were easily hackable.

    If you use ICQ, to be much safer, you really need to be using a modern version (I think the current version is 6.something). The more easily hackable elements were removed with ICQ 5 and the discontinuation of 2003 (Which I think you can still download, but it is heavily flagged as being non-supported software).

    I was asked to visit this site by you last night, but fortunately I didn't, cause you wouldn't respond to me afterwards. So everyone don't click or copy/paste this link, but perhaps find out who owns it and shut them down.

    I've been using this messaging client for years now so I'd suggest everyone look into using it. It's alot safer than ICQ and you can use aim,yahoo,msn,icq from the same client and share the same buddy list window etc.

    www.trillian.cc

    You can download trillian basic for free or pay or find the pro version yourself. Customizable skins with the features of every chat program for the most part.

    Trillian is much better than ICQ itself... not only for the security reasons but because you can also connect to irc, aim, yahoo, and msn - multiple names at the same time as well.

    &lt;/plug&gt;

    Thanks everyone for your advice and support.

    ICQ number is pretty darn old. It is the ICQ I have been using for many years, including my days when I used to broker under Centurio and De. Its connected to my email on my private server, so not sure how they got it and didn't find any "password retrievals" in my email so obviously it was a direct grab.

    Obviously, I got something from something, but I'm really careful about surfing and such. To be honest, I would have much rather them perhaps hacked my accts (which so far appear safe) than my ICQ. Rather lose a billion+ gold than have people at risk over trusting my reputation and getting hurt from it.

    My McAfee is updated regularly and scans and obviously didn't catch this, nor did anything ask to "access" the internet through my firewall.. Even after it happened, didn't get anything showing up, but obviously it has to be there. Trying my other scanners and we'll see how it goes. I might do a wipe if nothing brings it up as I'm paranoid about stuff like this.

    Perhaps it was just pure brute force?

    I'm not sure if ICQ has a failed sign in limit or not...

    I had to move a post (and a few attached) that had the site linked.

    If you get a site from the sub-domain "ultima-traders" at "t35.com", don't go to it.

    It attempts to install a "flash plug in" .exe file that isn't.

    I'm going to be sending a formal email to the free site company about the subdomain and the malicious ware it has on it, as it's against their Terms and Conditions.
