An Account of Mine was Hacked

Post by RabidFox » Mon Jul 31, 2017 5:29 pm

I am not going to say what type of account it is, but one of my online accounts was hacked. I can tell you that it was NOT Feila and has nothing to do with it. I can also tell you that it was likely something personal that only has to do with me, so I wouldn't worry yourselves over your own security. I can't make any promises, but I can let you know that this has happened to me in the past. Therefore it's probably someone who has a problem with me personally. I can think of one person and that's all—Because I do not have a habit of making enemies. While I think I know who it is, I am not going to give them the satisfaction of having their name made public. That and I just don't like to do things that way.

Don't worry. I'll be fine. Everything has already been taken care of.

Wasn't me...

But in all seriousness, I hope whoever it was gets a good brick upside the head and thus, of course, learns not to do that. People that hack things for no reason whatsoever have nothing better to do other than to torment and ruin peoples lives. More so when it's a thing like a computer containing years upon years of family photos, only to be wiped by the hacker and never to be recovered from the loss...

Needless to say, I've done hacking before, but only as an IT and Network Security specialist, never in a truly malicious and horrible manner in turn. OS things like BlackArch scare folks, unless of course, you're like me... and know what to do with it. Albeit, why should I honestly use all those tools and assets on anyone? I mean really, why? The thrill of torture? The pain it causes? The act of "just cause I can"? I'll never understand these people... really never will.

Oh, what they did to me was awful. It was beyond belief. They were actually trying to sell things with my username and the credit card that I use. I panicked. However, I get e-mails about my online activity and managed to catch the problem before anyone could buy the items. I also had to call customer service and report the activity, so that I wouldn't owe anyone any money.

I tell you, some people just have no respect for common decency.

Indeed they do not... freakin' crazy as sh*t people out there. It's a common practice to sniff and thus, f*ck everyone they sniff out for their own monetary gain and possibly pleasure.

Common Decency? Doesn't exist in the realms of a Hacker... that I know for a fact.
