Post Have I been hacked? Reply with quote
I've found myself in an odd situation which has left me unsure if I've had my account hacked or not :P

The Evidence:
My Assault Rifle and LMG now have forward grips and my carbine has a laser sight. All three now have 1x reflex sights too. I did not buy any of this. (suggests hacking)
My Anti-tank Loadout for Heavy Assault has been re-named. I did not do this (suggests hacking)
My Cert points have not gone down by any ammount large enough for me to notice (suggests no hack)
My DB cash has not been touched (suggests no hack)
My stat's page doesn't show any score/kill/cert gains aside from when I've been playing (suggests no hack)

Anyone know if the first two points of evidence are benign (free unlocks for all that I missed the announcement of springs to mind) or if I have actually been hacked by someone who's only goal was to re-name a loadout and buy a few small upgrades?

Regardless I think I'll change my PW anyway, just to be safe

I'd say change password. Also check your computer for vulnerabilities, just in case someone's got a backdoor to your computer. And, if there are others in your household, have a stern talk with them, preferably with a baseball bat as striking argument. That all should fix it.

check the name of the loadout, they made default ones a while ago (as Lardy said) so maybe its just that.

But change PW anyway, wont do any harm.

PW has been changed.

As for the loadout, it does sound like a default one but I know for a fact that I re-named it a few weeks ago to ANTI-TANK when I got the Crow. It's now called something like "Front Line Fighter"

Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity...

Wouldn't surprise me to find the software just overrode your labels with the defaults due to a glitch. This is SoE... sorry... Daybreak after all
