An account in our guild got hacked. Which wouldn’t have been so bad if it hadn’t happened to be an officer account. >.<
They took almost everything out of the guild bank (4 mostly full tabs worth) and whatever gold was in there (at least 3500). And for some strange reason, they kicked a member out of the guild.
I have to say that after I found out, the next few hours were very stressful for me. I couldn’t kick the hacked character out of the guild because they were the same rank as me and I couldn’t get a hold of our guild leader either (I must have phoned the poor guy a dozen times in a panic). Mostly I stood around Dalaran on Niqora, unwilling to log off because I wanted to make sure that I was there if anything else happened. The hacker had full power to kick everyone but the officers and the guild leader from Bloodriver. I’m glad he never did because I think I would have just broken down in frustration.
Lucky for me, I had my guildies to pick up my mood. We started joking around and doing some instance runs because that’s what we would do on a normal day. One of them even submitted a ticket to point out the comprimised account and to start getting our items back into the guild bank. By the time the guild leader came on and kicked the hacked character out of the guild, we were all in a better mood than before.
What happened really REALLY sucked and I never want it to happen again. But it made me realize yet again how luck I am to be in a guild with great people. I’m not going to dwell on the past, I’m going to do whatever I can to make things right again. Congratulations hacker, you got our items and gold. But we’re gonna get it back and we’ll be laughing while you’re sitting all by your lonesome self, stealing like the lowly crook you are and being venomously hated by scores of people. You won the battle, we won the war.
