MOVE THIS TO THE NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS.

I'm giving everyone a warning:  A hacker seems to be going around various GS communities and baiting people into being hacked.  This hacker hacked a few people's computers over in The Adepts of Weyard around the time a prominent hacker that ToK had problems with, Grim Reapist, returned to try and stir up trouble.  Although they are similar, it is unknown if it is the same person.  However, given that the incidents are related both in nature and occured at a similar time, it may be that someone is actively targeting GS Fan Communities.

Guys, we need to be on the look out for ANYTHING suspicious.  I know this is a hacking community, but we're for hacking into the game, not into another person's computer.  There's a few things to look out for:

The bait and switch in question: http://s2.zetaboards.com/The_Adepts_of_Weyard/topic/5086166/1/
The intro topic of the hacker: http://s2.zetaboards.com/The_Adepts_of_Weyard/topic/5084167/1/
Topic the returning hacker started in ToK: http://s9.zetaboards.com/The_Temple_of_Kraden/topic/7202264/1/
Another topic they started in ToK: http://s9.zetaboards.com/The_Temple_of_Kraden/topic/7200139/1/

If you see ANY intro topic with similar grammatical nightmares, any topics that look like outright flames with links back to their sites, or anything that you even THINK might be a trap, stay the hell away from it, report it IMMEDIATELY, and warn other people of what's going on.

This is a very serious matter, guys.  We cannot afford to drop our guard, ESPECIALLY given the nature of this community.

So wait, we can spot them because they use bad grammar, what if they make no mistakes in there text, and these banned people seem like people that just made accounts to cause trouble... or am I missing something? Whos computer has been hacked?

No, this is something in common.  I'm saying that you need to be ware of things like the Bait and Switch.  They posted a link back to their site, and that's how one member's PC got hacked.

It was Alex, I believe.

Isnt there a way to disallow users to post links until say they have like 10 posts, This would discourage people to waste time posting ten times

So we're on the lookout for a dood who spells words wrong all the time? Got it! This is kinda funny, a hacking community being hacked. Irony at it's best ^-^

Why is someone hacking Goldensun fansites? It's a bit weird.

It's not just that, though.  If it were just bad grammar, then that'd be too broad.  It's a certain... er, style of bad grammar. BUT, more importantly, it's the context of their posts.  If you see someone make a post like the one in the trap, REPORT THE CRAP OUT OF IT, and warn people not to fall for it.

This is the first time I've ever heard of a hacking community being hacked. It would be funny, but I kind of care about this community already.  I can't be of too much help in catching them or keeping them at bay, but I do have two friends that can hack people's PCs. If anything happens to put this site at risk, I could probably ask them for help. They might think it's fun. (That and they approve of me finally getting around to hacking games...).

I'm pissed off that they would use the anonymous thing on their posts though. Obviously someone with too much time on their hands... anonymous isn't meant to target little communities, let alone ones that hack. It's mostly just a meme too, but there's a code and whatnot to follow, and that guy broke it.
Makes me wonder of the guy is a 4channer.
...Though at least it would have been slightly more amusing if it used l33t.

Huh...?? a computer hacker? Just don't look at me I am maybe a bad english speaker
but it is impossible that I am a hacker and besides about 70% of Filipinos don't know how to use
proper english grammar.

Thanks for the info about the hacker

I'll just jack in my net navi,Megaman.EXE to the net to look for the hacker :)

Hey, don't worry, your grammar is much better than the person in question.  Furthermore, you haven't made any topics aimed at stirring up commotion.  So long you've not done something to stir up trouble, you don't have to worry about being suspected.

Also:  Pffft.  Everyone knows that Blues/Protoman.exe is better. XD

Okay.  I admit it.  It was me.

.  .  .

Yeah, if only it were that simple...

ANYWAY...  That's just wrong.  I mean, I've had my computer hacked twice before, (that damned April Fools thing from last year), but when it gets to a personal level like this...?  I mean, it's one thing to send out a virus ridden file for a game, a movie, or other commonly downloaded thing, but when you make a WEBSITE that's virus ridden, and THEN exclusively posting links to it on sites for a specific crowd, you've crossed another line.

By the way, Role.  I have an idea that might make it to where we don't unconsciously assist said hacker...

You just posted about ALL their tendencies.  Well, if they decide to come here, wouldn't they see that eventually and change their "style?"  What I think is that maybe Atrius, (or whoever the moderator is here now), should send a form e-mail to every member here so that they can get the news without publicly posting, which might allow the hacker to get the jump on more people.  And, since ToK and the other sites have already encountered the jackass, (pardon), they could leave them out if/when they do the same thing.  The reason why I ask this, (besides the obvious), is that people might not see the threads that you and others have posted about this issue.  I, for one, didn't see it for a good 3 days after it was posted!

Just a suggestion...

Well, regardless, thanks for the info.  I'll keep my eyes open for anything related...

Well, if our Admin would actually get on and put this where it's supposed to be, or maybe if my power wasn't taken from me to begin with, this could have been put in an area where people could see it.

If they come and people fall for it because they didn't see this, don't blame me, I'm not the one with power. [/stab]

If I get hacked or a virus, the only person I blame is myself for being stupid enough to click links from folks I dont know or if it comes down to someone impersonating someone else, there new posting habbits should be quite clear..... I dont store personal data and all my files are backed up so if i get any problems.... Reformat and i have a clean system.

I never look at the news topics anyway (and im not the only one), If theres anything important its usually discussed in the chatbox and thus people will see and heed the warnings, if not then again its up to them to make judgments.

Few days away without even signing on, rare for him lol, Lets hope hes just busy

Wow, you're naive.  You think that's all they'll do... just hack in for the lulz.  Here's a hint:  Most hackers DON'T.

Perhaps instead of panicking we could request the user's IP and block it...

Unfurtunatly i know bery little on how to do it bit im willing to learn how. I need a few people to help me. I'm sure we can create a very well story based on what we know of the games. Anyone interested?

I look at the relationships of the numbers.... 162  1+6+2 = 9 ; onesizetwo = alphabetical order = 9 characters ; Distance apart analysis: os = 4 = 1[6][2] , st = 1 = [1]6[2] , ot = 5 = [1][6]2 ; ost = original sound track?

October 04, 2017, 04:17:40 AM
Fox: Yeah, it does bring a small amount of activity. Not good quality activity, but it's still activity, nonetheless.  Now if we can get them to randomly post pictures and vdeios!

Majora: If nothing else, I like how they're copying the content of real posts at random. Interesting to see how they adapt to seem more authentic

Fox: Oh yes... Also multiply all levels by two. (So actually, an adept will have levels of 54, 3, 2, and 1, rather than 5, 0, 0, 0.... if going by those.)
