Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.

- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

                Or, someone could have randomly generated a UDID and got lucky. Very unlikely though as it is a mix of 40 unique characters...Either way, blue, change your important passwords, and run your antivirus. Lastly, since antiviruses generally don't do s**t, look through your computer for suspicious files that were created recently. They will MOST LIKELY (but this is not always the case) have a .exe or .EXE extension - and be very small, typically like 50-100kB. Unless the person actually knew what they were doing (majority of people don't, they just use a program to do it for them) it should be very easy to spot the virus on your computer. Your other accounts could be compromised by the virus as well, so just make sure to monitor stuff closely. Don't want to lose those funds for iTunes cards.....

                    Good thing is they can see the IP the login packets were sent from, and they can block that person from accessing the server at all I would assume (aka banned).

                      So can someone just get your UDID through email only?? Because alot of ppl know my email... I hope you guys catch whoever is doing this, and let them pay a hefty fine

                        No, you can't get a UDID through email. You need to get it directly off of the device/when device is plugged into iTunes. For this to happen, I imagine BLUE has some sort of RAT (Remote Administration Tool, aka trojan virus) on his computer and someone simply looked through his iTunes while his phone was plugged in.

                          Deleting the .exe wouldn't fix it, if its something on his pc itd be a key logger or a RAT and if its the latter he may as well format his drive.

                            Actually it would be possible if the account was bound to a email and the email account was hack the hacker could have retrieve the account on his device.

                              Not good advice at all, the .exe is the server file, which is all the virus is. Keyloggers, RATs, stealers, etc are all server files that carry out remote functions, whether it be logging keystrokes, performing surveilance functions, or looking through autocomplete files and cookies. Therefore, deleting the .exe will most likely fix it. Most viruses, sans the really advanced server files, are not rooted into the registry - therefore they are very easy to remove. The problem is, they are often obfuscated, encrypted, and filled with junk code to throw off antiviruses, therefore making them undetectable until an antivirus company gets their hands on a file using the same crypter stub through a site like VirusTotal. Sometimes, viruses can be bound to documents or images, but most of the time the server is just in the temp folder in %appdata% or in the System32 folder.

                              Therefore, telling him to format his drive is awful advice because he'd be losing everything that he does not need to. blackhat.gif
