Something to add:

Never use your KoC login email for ANYTHING other than logging into KoC.
Don't use an email address that contains your KoC name.

I also recommend a random password
They can be generated here:


Another tip: Make a new email account (possibly the name random too)
Dont use it for anything other than KoC
Dont let anyone else know it at any point
Also, dont use a hotmail/free mail account
Gmail uses secure connections, but Id still go with Comcast or something super secure like that.

Dont download anything you dont trust
Use recruiters that are used by alot of other people. Thye most likely arent keyloggers

Autobuyers nowadays are complex to code. Creators have to spend alot of time and energy to make them. They arent going to give tha code away to you for free... Dont be conned into using a fake autobuyer that hacks your account

Just watch yourself and dont break the rules
Keyloggers that claim to be autobuyers and "bankers" (people tat spend your gold for you) are the biggest hacking causes.
As far as Im concerned if you want to screw up the game with an "autobuyer" or a banker, you deserve to be hacked an deleted.

use ridiculously hard passwords. Use a combination of different letters (cap & lower case), numbers, and symbols. Dont make words, make gibberish. Write it down or even better, memorize it. An example is UO3@ksO#k6lPj. That will take a while for a hacker to guess using a cracking program from what I understand.

Well, if you have a safe email that nobody knows about, and I mean nobody, then I dont think the password really matters, as then honestly the only way that they can hack you is using a keylogger.

Also NEVER use your KoC email at MSN, that has happened many times that people get hacked that way, they get your email, then hack the email then send the password to it. Even if this is people you trust by heart, do not give them this kind of information, it might not be them doing something, but they could pass ýour MSN on to someone that asks, as they might not know that you really dont want it to go to someone else.

I suggest strongly to not use the same password on a forum of an alliance you are in or registered with.

Admins of those foranamely have acces to those data and if they do some research they can find several to "hack"...

12th February 2006, 02:00 PM
Also, if you don't already have it, I suggest getting sp2 (you can download service pack 2 on microsoft's site... either via the update or download it as a separate file)

Note that due to its size, automatic updates will not download this without permission.

In case you are wondering what it does... it has a lot of security updates to windows, which should prevent many exploits from working ;)

15th February 2006, 02:48 PM
the thing to do is never open any links while your KoC account is logged in,

there are some software applications flying about which change your password as a background task while you look at a website.

so if you find a website log out your KoC account before you opoen it up

15th February 2006, 03:05 PM
Hmm, I may have missed it, but I don't think anyone made this point yet.

Don't be an idiot and share your log in details with anyone. You are begging to be sold off if you do.

19th February 2006, 01:25 PM
this thread is rather popular :yay:

yes use a riduculosly hard pass

like 6~'jdn7!!**

and dont trust random urls you dont know about as they may contain keyloggers

dude <_< Ad Aware only searches for SPYWARE and ADWARE, which display ads on your PC, or spam your email or ad toolbars... HERES a real, free AV (antivirus) http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/lng/us/tpl/v5

first of all u need a decent web browser with a built in firewall visit this page to get firefox i use it and it has saved me a few times from infected files.
click here for firefox now ! (http://www.downloadfirefox.net/)btw... firefox isn't a firewall ;)

oh and... if you don't need them... disabling scripts (and java) will prevent pretty much anything from causing an issue ;)
be it exploiting firefox(/opera/netscape/other) or be it exploiting ie... or either or both or whatever :tongue:

im sorry xull no offence but i have to disagree firefox does have a built in firewall if you view the readme it tells you

Make sure that you have javascript disabled. It seems that about 90% of the people who get hacked on here are being hacked by simple javascript exploits and XSS.

A Better Web Experience
Firefox 1.5 has an intuitive interface and blocks viruses, spyware, and popup ads. It delivers Web pages faster than ever. And it’s easy to install and import your favorites. Packed with useful features like tabbed browsing, Live Bookmarks, and an integrated Search bar, Firefox will change the way you experience the Web, for the better.
Faster Browsing
Enjoy quick page loading as you navigate back and forward in a browsing session. Improvements to the engine that powers Firefox deliver more accurate display of complex Web sites, support for new Web standards, and better overall performance.
Automatic Updates
The new Software Update feature makes it easy to get the latest security and feature updates to Firefox. Firefox automatically downloads these small updates in the background and prompts you when they are ready to be installed.
Tabbed Browsing
Use tabbed browsing to open multiple Web pages in a single browser window, and quickly flip back and forth. Drag and drop open tabs to keep related pages together.
Improved Pop-up Blocking
Firefox’s built-in pop-up blocker has been enhanced to block more unwanted pop-up and pop-under ads.
Integrated Search
Tap into the power of the Web’s most popular search engines with the built-in Search bar, and easily add new engines.
Stronger Security
Firefox keeps you more secure when you’re browsing the Web, closing the door on spyware, worms, and viruses. The Firefox community of developers and security experts works around the clock to monitor security issues and release updates to better protect you.

Firefox 1.5 delivers easier navigation for everyone, including those who are visually or motor-impaired. Firefox is the first browser to support DHTML accessibility, which, when enabled by Web authors, allows rich Web applications to be read aloud. Users may navigate with keystrokes rather than mouse clicks, reducing the tabbing required to navigate documents such as spreadsheets. Firefox 1.5 (Windows version) is also the first browser to meet US federal government requirements that software be easily accessible to users with physical impairments.
Customize Firefox
Select new button controls for your toolbars, install extensions to add new features, or change the look of your browser with themes - the way Firefox looks and works is under your control.
Next Generation Web Support
Innovative new Web applications and services deliver a richer Web experience. Support for open Web standards in Firefox ensures you can get the most out of this emerging class of Web-based tools.
nope... no firewall. firefox is a web browser.

mind finding what you are referring to? are you sure it isn't mentioning how to configure your firewall/issues it may have with firewalls?

Oh wait, this isn't wasteland is it, haha... well, to avoid spamming: firefox is definitely the best browser, and if you use something like Script Block against unwanted java script, I doubt you'd ever get hacked.
