Well, I've played Tibia for 10 years all in all.
During my 10 years of Tibia I've been up to plenty of bad on the internet, cracking files, configuring my own fare share of internet war fare against the people I didn't like and what not.
Never once has my computer been compromised during my 10+ years of internet badness.
My Younger Brother, has also done his fare share of bad stuff on the internet, and is also a fan of Tibia. Hes hosted some of the most famous OT's on tibia and has learned a great deal about the depths of the game and so on and so forth and of which I'm proud of him.
But yesterday his inexperience to the internet showed..
He had been bugging me to find a RP or a ED for him to bot and play legit with.
Ended up finding him a good char for a decent price loaded with stats and eq.
The same day he asked for a good MC and I told him through txting,
DO NOT DOWNLOAD A RANDOM MC!
"I use NeoMC, thats what you want to use, but you want to use the one IM going to give you, other onces are generally hacks and so on."
his reply was "Okay, send it when you can."
I worked that night and didnt get around to it.
The next day he said he got one from *******, said it worked perfectly and all (as im sure it "did")
Later that night.....ALL My 10+ Accounts stacked with money makers and gold, items and collectibles were all BONE DRY.
He couldnt figure out why it happened or how it happened, and I simply explained the KeyLogger that was included in the file he downloaded was clearly the perpetrator in this situation.
I lost over 280KK in PURE GOLD, and I couldnt even begin to appraise all the "KK"'s in Items I lost.....
His account that he bought was also cleaned bone dry.
None of the chars were killed or anything, just simply robbed clean.
Got a bunch of characters with not a fucking thing to show for my 10 years of game play..
So I did what someone normally would've done....I bought some gold...
I spent $56 on 7KK just to re-stock 2 chars, my EK and MS so I can bot them over night to retain my funds again little by little.
I had changed the passwords on the accounts, and my brother said he did a clean scan of his computer and deleted the files and what not.
Gave him the benefit of the doubt that he knew what he was doing to rid of the Logger.
Gave him access to the accounts (handful of MAIN Accounts that held KK's in loot that was left on accounts for him to sell to Rashid and so on)
He did what he was told, and I told him to half-ass the setups so I can just log on and bot em,
Never got around to it because I had 2 hours of sleep (I tend for my 1 year old daughter) and I had work again last night.
Felt a little down but felt like I could come back with simply 10kk to make something off of.
As I'm pulling into my apartment this morning at 7 AM he txt's me and says that everything was cleaned out AGAIN -.-"
Clearly he didnt know how to get rid of the Logger and it fucked me AGAIN!
Now..Im out my 10 years of game play and funds, and an additional $56 on top of it (which isn't much but its something when you never even got to take advantage of what you bought).
I'm simply considering Retiring again..
Was REALLLLLYYY planning on coming back to iBot and coming back hard to contribute again to the community, actually had a butt load of utility scripts made up and almost completed for release.
Now I feel discouraged sense all my chars are naked.
Literally got have 0 gold..
"10:09 Naji: Your account balance is 0 gold."
to quit or not to quit?
If anyone is kind enough...I play Calmera and would appreciate any donations of any sort to help me get back on my feet.
Or to even make me WANT TO get back on my feet.
Gold, items, anything...I'd appreciate it....
Calmera Noob : "Xyience Energy"
City : "Ab'Dendriel"
Feeling down right now lol,
*Crys a tear...*
Not sure how to even begin hunting sense I have NO Gear and NO cash to even start killing rats lol..
