    ok i got hacked, i and i think i know how.
    the email that was used for the account that got hacked is also registered to a certain uo forum. the other accounts i have are not registered to the same email were ok

    the person that runs these boards is seen as a personality within the stratics and Atlantic community.people in this guys guild run around on beetles that can carry over 26k stone in weight i know this because i killed one of them and there was over 26k of boards in the beetle they were riding.if you look on his site you see people in his guild posting pics that clearly show illegal 3rd party progs running in the taskbar. years ago when you could sell items on ebay this guy was running a monopoly selling gold and other items on ebay.i have even stood at a vendor of a broker who is in that guild that has an unending supply of valorite hammers.

    does it stand to reason that if someone runs a successful very large guild and successful forum. and had been playing the game years, would be privy to a lot of information about exploits scams and whatever. it would be very tempting just to push that info aside and not use it.

    now as this guy is a uo personalty you cant say anything wrong about him
    but my finger is pointing in your direction

    lol man you have one of the worst attitudes on stratics i thought mine was bad.
    have you managed to steal any good colored bandaids today rofl la

    i wont be surprised this will get locked because you cant say anything against this guy or his guild because he is a personalty within the uo community, even though im not mentioning him or his guild.

    You hit a soft spot when you said he lost his mod position I guess.

    The original post is completely distasteful. Please do not bring your personal agendas to stratics to spread misinformation. TWO WRONGS do not make a right. Just because your guild was accused in a wrong manner does not make it right for you to come here and do the same thing.

    It might be all fun and games to you but there are real people who are getting hacked.

    go read the uo atlantic boards if you think the post was distasteful. he hit the nail on the head with his post...more than you know.

    perhaps next time you have an opinion, make sure it is educated?

    edit: found out from thomas that walter mitty is actually a part of the guild that is being accused of being involved. my apologies thomas.

    What am I looking for on the Atlantic board?? I assumed you meant Stratics Atlantic boards.
     
  11. Dunno what board or person/guild. Since I don't know about it (and I could guess) ... here's what I think.

    1. I am not on the mentioned board or any other than Stratics
    2. I have not been hacked ... in a total of 9+ years of UO

    ergo, it seems that since Stratics is my board of choice AND I have yet to be hacked ... my choice at least contributes to my current hack-free life in UO.

    Take a hint people ... and this is all circumstantial/speculative right now.

    And Walter? I am truly bothered that someone chose to be a total arse to you and the others.

    OK, just a note - do not PM mods or admins asking who is registered on Stratics under what email... I got a PM like this today and it all looks fishy now.

    We will NOT disclose this kind of information to you.
    If EA people asked our directors/owner, MAYBE some information could, maybe eventually transpire, for a greater good, eventually, but as principle our posters information is confidential.

    I know this has probably been said a million times, and it's too late for the OP, but the best anti-hack you can do is have an email just for your UO account(s). Don't use it for anything else. If you are the only person that knows the email address, no one can use it to steal your accounts. Most ISP's give you 10-20 free email addys.

    so far 3 people in the last three weeks have been attacked using the same method (that I am aware of)...and the proof is readily available. the person responsible was caught with their pants down...and this persons only defense has pretty much been *f**k you*.

    I don't see any 'strong evidence' nor do I see ANY evidence of the things you are speculating on. Please don't make any more blatently pointless, ignorant, disrespectful threads. Thanks.

    no? between the server logs showing the intrusions and the backlog of information between THREE SEPERATE SOURCES...I hardly call anything speculation. in addition, no names have been mentioned...so what are you concerned about hmm?

    and just for posterities sake...what guild are you in on Atl? i am sure many of us would like to be enlightened.

    I'll bring it out in the open. They are accusing me and my close r/l friend of hacking them. It is sad really because when they where hacked me and him both were out of state visiting other friends. They have no proof on anything other than one of our names was registered under a louisanna IP and the address that did the hacking was was also LA.

    accusing you? you openly admit being a part of the hackings kiddo. (mods...go read the HOT boards...look for yourselves before you consider this as slander)

    in addition you forget to mention this same IP has been used solely by the accused for the last several years.

    It's great when people make things up like that. Sorry you were blamed for hacking someone.

    The OP should have to publicly apologize to you...la

    The OP said HE had strong evidence. Obviously he can't post it for us since it goes against the rules here. He can post strong speculation but that's it. And I see it as strong speculation. Why do you care anyways?

    Walter: That does suck. Karma will bite back hard on these hackers. No one ever really holds any true respect for those low-lives. Hackers are pathetic, and even they know it, plain and and simple.

    i haven't accused dragkis of anything. you and he are making the assumption i have.

    its not draginkis im pointing the finger at, or blot or anyone in their guild.
    the dudes im pointing the finger at are in a totally different guild.

    ok its not strong evidence its strong speculation. being that i had the account and that forum address on the same email.and that's about all that's on the email.apart form an old facebook.

    What guild I am in has nothing to do with the fact that you are making things up and do not have any evidence to back it up?
    Why do I care? Because you are slandering every large guild that is on Atlantic. And FYI I don't even play anymore, so don't pretend I am defending anything, as you are hating.

    at the end of the day, its all just pixels nothing to get upset about really.
    if my post has damaged the creditability of anyone's site then im truly sorry for that.

    just lock my post or even better just delete it form the forum.it saves others being paranoid about signing up to sites, and that would damage the community.

    i guess im just gonna stop with uo and put it behind me and mark it up to experience.

    I am not slandering anyone...I take what I know directly from those affected...as well as all the information made public on the Atlantic boards.

    So this is the general rubric of this thread:

    1) Disgruntled member of X comes to Stratics and makes up some things to start some drama - bit of tit for tat for some other drama on another forum where X is being accused of hacking.

    2) People that are friends of the enemy of X do not realize this and think that he is actually one of them - Hence, defend him.

    3) People that are members of X do not realize that OP is one of them and think he is actually one of the enemy of X - Hence, attack him.

    4) I laugh (and also get saddened by how bad things on my home shard have become)

    correct...I even thought the person who made the thread was really a victim. again...my apologies for my own confusion...I am not above admitting a mistake.

    if any of you would like the story behind much of the hackings of late...feel free to peruse this thread.

    http://www.hot-guild.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17844

    oh...and in regards to #4...that is what happens when a good portion of the respectable people leave due to instances like this or others. you end up with all the rabble... *sighs*

    my affiliation? unguilded atm.

    Based off the normal personalities of almost every UO PVPer I have met in my 11 years coupled with responses in this thread, I tend to believe OP. When one is quick to come to a defense when no names were posted makes me believe they may be guilty of something maby not what was posted but prob something of a similar nature.

    So you are basing your 'assumptions' off of 'generalizations' of the 'general' nature of UO PVPers?

    Thats all that has to be said. :D

    Seriously, though. There is only ONE person who owns the biggest ATL pvp boards and also posts a lot here on stratics, and I read the post on the same boards about someone supposedly having 26k boards on their beetle.

    So yes I know who he is talking about, why wouldn't I come to his defense??
