Russian hacker yay


Recommended Posts

Hi all, i know there is a few of these out there but they always go off track and i cant actually find a legit answer..


very simply... i managed to somehow get my origin account in the intraweb while i wasnt playing BF3, russia picked it up, russian hacked, i lose. EB wont fix this as they are probably over hearing about it (Odd that everything on my computer is safe other then origin which begs a question in itself)


However on topic.. I know im screwed, cant do anything about it, however if i create a new origin account, buy a new game with a new cd key, will that release me from this crap? or is it going to carry over from IP?


I simply just dont want to waste any money, but dont want to miss out on BF4 because of some foolish russian.


thanks for any help.

AFAIK, bans are NOT ip related , but game GUId, so if you open a new Origin account, buy the game again with a new key, dont allow you account to be hacked nor share passwords with ANYONE, dont use hacks then you shouldbe fine.

Hey guys, thanks for the indication on the IP side of things, i have purchased a new copy on a new origin account.


Odd thing is, i have no issues wiht security, and dont share my passwords with anyone, infact the only thing that has issues is origin and it seems there is quite a large population with the same issue of russian/chinese/ukraine hackers.. my steam, wow, ffxiv are all untouched.. Never the less i added the security email thingymajig to my origin this time.


thanks again for the clarification.
