sorry if this is in the wrong place. But I was playing runescape and all of a sudden i lose connection to the server, might be helpful to know I use runelite and osrsbuddy. Anyway
I lose connection to the internet. So pop down stairs and reset the router. I probably log back in 20 mins later. In which I find myself in a different location, and a ring of wealth in my inventory which i have never bought. Very nice touch from the hacker. Anyway I went into my bank and course anything of value is gone. Now it’s not the money I care about. It’s the fact I’ve lost connection to the server and then been hacked.

Could this be that someone hasn’t hacked my router to log me out or isn’t his a coincidence and a very odd one at that. I have no protections on my laptop. So right now kinda freaking out that it could be More thn my account.

Thanks in advance

You took the risk of using third-party software that could not be safe. It's not that OSbuddy or RuneLite were safe in the past that they're still safe.
I presume you didn't have the authenticator on and a bank PIN set? Those really help in preventing hacks, even when they have your password.

Also, this is a RS3 forum, OSRS has its own forums further down the page.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Who knows? Hackers are capable of many abilities some consider to be unnatural. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

You need to scan your computer. You then need to change your registered
email to your account (this does not change the log in) then change password
to your account. Only use that email for Runescape only.

then put bank pin on .. this is a very secure piece of information. Even Jmods
do not know the numbers and if you regain your account after a hijack you have
to wait out the timer as Jagex cant or wont take off bank pins.

Lastly, do not click links on twitch, facebook, you tube or any other social media.

The phishing attempts out there are enormous. Jagex mentions this on the
news and to be aware and be safe.

Sorry to say you will have to rebuild your wealth as Jagex doesnt return items
or gp taken. But unlike many you got your account back.
The richest person is not who has the most. It is who Needs the least.

Could they boot me off my router?

They can cause your router to lose its Internet connection, and cause your account to disconnect from the game server, if they can get your router's public IP address. It is called a denial of service (DoS) attack. They really don't need to hack in to your router. As others here mentioned they often get your login information by phishing you, tricking you in to giving it to them with fake sites, and they get your public IP address when you visit their fake site. Links to the fake sites are typically found on Twitch, Facebook, Youtube. You click the link and enter in your info on the fake site and then they have everything they need to force your account to disconnect and log in to it and take your things.
