I iz Live Rly!
I am alive. Sorry for the lack of posts just not very excited right now. Nothing bad has happened on the poker front. My WoW account however was hacked and raped. This has me really pissed off. It will probably be a week before it all gets straightened out. Right now it is closed and disabled. I have no idea how this happened. I am pretty careful with passwords. This one was fairly safe at 8 chars long 4-alphas 4-numerics. Kind of scary it was hacked. Not sure what happened. I went to bed at 2AM and I wake up at 9AM and find out that my characters had been transferred to another server. I quickly send a tech support email saying my account had been compromised. I received an automated note that my account was disabled like 30 minutes later. I am not sure if this is for a violation of terms of services or if Blizzard actually shut it down because I told them it was compromised.
This annoys me and all but it is just a game and my liability here is low. I am hoping this was just a brute force attack and not some sort of keylogger. If it is a keylogger then I could be in for a world more pain. The only other thing I can think of is some inside job at Blizzard.
So I guess the process will be getting my account back. Getting my characters moved back to their home realms. The last part will be getting all my high end gear back. It has probably be shipped off to other accounts and sold. The crew at blizzard says on the homepage it can take up to a week to get your equipment back. Without equipment you are basically useless so this hurts badly. Now if they were nice they would just give me a full S4 PVP set and make me a happy customer. Not likely though. So for a while I am screwed.
I really can not figure out how they got into my account. It is driving me nuts.
I did survive the Fantasy Football pool for another week. Wheeeeee! I think we lost about half the people in the pool. Poor Bayne. I told him who to pick but he did not listen. So a total of 14 people remain of the original 37. I think my pick for this week was easy so hopefully I will survive one more time.
