Hacking alert: Social engineering to steal account info

Post by Pancho » Thu May 28, 2015 6:58 pm

When someone tells you "I can't access my account by clicking account button", then goes on to says, "Maybe I can access if only I knew the Drakkarzone URL for accounts, would you mind giving me the URL?",

Watch out. Period.

Here is why. Click the account button and copy the URL. Now close everything. The game , the browser etc. Open a new browser. Paste the URL and you will have instant access to the account info. If you had given this URL to someone else, you gave them the access to your account info.

So *Beware*, DO NOT give the URL that you get by clicking Account button to anyone.

Just tell them to contact help@drakkarzone.com.

well said.

Do not EVER under any circumstances provide your account info to anyone else.
If someone asks, refer them to me. I can provide them access to their own account page.
if they do ask you, let me know, I would love to have a chat with them
