I was hacked too about 3 weeks ago:
Here are some pointers, which could lead to answers about how it happens:
- Newly installed windows, everything formatted, there was nothing at PC but KO and msn yet.. Everything clean so far.
- Low lvl char
- Too many coins on it, but nothing much else.
- Never changed chars pw
- I had some sort of bug, saying kinght online will be closed, and I had option to choose whether to report the bug or not. Strange thing is that whether I Choose option YES or NO, both times it will say bug has been reported... Now I wonder if this is not some sort of hack that has been somehow inserted into game updates, and downloaded through them. That could be somehow sending your login info somewhere. Its just my theory.
So far I came to three possible ways how it could be happening:
- Database leak: Not changing your pw caused it (Changed your pw long time ago)
- Website hack: On contrary Changing your pw at website caused it.
- Bug that sends "reports" caused it.
If any of you hacked people had same bug happening and sending some "reports" please write here, so we have more clues. Or any other kinds of suspicions or circumstances under which you have been hacked, can help prevent further hackings..
