Looks like Daden got hacked and moved to Seraph last night.

Does he still play on PS2? These latest hackings are troubling me, since they are even happening to people with tokens who can't find anything weird on their computers and haven't done anything stupid with their account info.

How do these situations get handled? I read that his account got locked, but will any of his stuff be recoverable?

My understanding is that they can do a rollback to a saved point before the theft. So he'll be back on Lakshmi with all of his stuff.

I'm curious to know if he had a security token.

Ranzz got hacked and sent to Ragnarok. Everything of value gone. He was primarily PS2 w/o token but used the PC version occasionally and probably picked up a key logger somewhere. Hopefully that's just what it was as my account information was on his PC too.

Getting it rolled back tomorrow for what that's worth and however long it takes.

Wow that's too bad. I was just talking to Daden about this last night and Ranzz's situation sounds almost identical to his. Daden played only on PS2 without a security token. Daden says he never used a PC at all, so it is possible that there was no keylogger at all in Ranzz's case.

I thought perhaps they just used a trial and error program to guess the password, but doesn't PlayOnline lock you out after a certain number of tries? Perhaps they stole their passwords from something else and guessed correctly that they (like a ton of people) use the same password for everything. I don't know.

Or..... Or!!! Square-Enix found everyone that still didn't have a token and hacked them personally to push token sales! Shocked
