Yup, we were hacked. This morning at about 4:30 a.m. local time. Stripped Theothana of almost everything, and then went to work on the guild bank. Then they went through all of the alts and took their gold, but only one other toon's inventory. It was our bank alt. Only mom's account and only on one server. For some reason they didn't go through anyone's mail and so we were left with some stuff.

How did this happen?

I have no idea. The only thing could be I downloaded something with an addon, but since I only use addons from Curse or Ace, that seems unlikely. I've been through all of our computers scanning for anything that doesn't belong and nothing came up.

The GM said they'd be able to get almost everything back.

In the meantime, I guess were playing with low level alts.

It's getting to the point that so many people I know and people they know, and now people who's blogs I read are getting hacked. I think I may just start screenshotting my bank every day when I log off to make sure I have a record of what I have if I get hacked...

I hope the GM's are right and you get your items and gold back. It's never fun having to start over.

The fact that you use addons from curse isn't necessarily a good thing. Their screening process is notoriously bad for letting through keyloggers and such. Ace is fairly safe (and sadly, going away soon).

Good luck with the recovery.
