I miss my purple polaron destroyer... plus I've had to go through all the 2800 missions again to get the ground set and space set since all of that was in my inventory and equiped on my ship. I'd also checked my fleets bank log and I'd made withdrawals from it as well, even though I only joined the fleet a day before I got hacked.

I really hope theres something that can be done about this as I'm finding it really hard to want to play right now, my STO account is seperate from everything I use online, the password was different and from the looks of things several people seem to have been hacked in a similar manner on saturday so I'm wondering if there has been some kind of info leak on their end?

I hope so to

Given that items like the maco set are bound, it "should" be easy to restore them, especially in a "Perfect world". :p

It's a shame they are bound in a way, as I'd give you a set if they weren't.

i change my pass every month or so cause of my card. i think they knew if they messed with my card it would have become more than a breach of rules. this would have never happened in a million years before F2P. . .

yea. they left my engine tech weirdly though. and my EDCs an salvage. i could get started again but whats to stop them hacking it again and taking all that an selling it lol

I was just glad they didnt go to my ship yard, as I have all my ships decked out with didnt load outs and stuff and some maco/omega stuff... thankfully I was able to dump all the weaps from my gal-x onto my defiant but I'm not hitting the same DPS I used to melt through borg like a hot knife through butter.

Well this is of concern...think I'll have to generate a new password just in case... I haven't been hacked thus far btw - hopefully I haven't just jinxed myself

It happened to me, I logged in and found my Ship stripped of everything but a few energy batteries, all my energy credits GONE and my inventory cleaned out but for a few weapon and auxiliary batteries

On the upside my Bank wasn't touched... or my fleets, so that is good.

Password changed now...

The most commonly hacked password is Password1. It has an upper case and a number as well as 9 characters long so it typically satisfies most strong password requirements. Please for the love of the prophets, don't ever ever ever use this. Did i say ever? ever!
