Hello,

I was playing oldschool today.
I randomly got logged off and couldnt log in anymore for +-10minutes.

Me being skeptical changing password straight away, because i got dced.
But my internet didnt stop working.

Now my question is how can other people have acces to my account since i even have the authenticator????

My account has always been secure with multiple steps.
My mail hasnt been compromised and i havent filled my password anywhere else than runescape website.

Really lost everything now and dont really feel like playing anymore..

Kind regards,
Bas987

Hey Bas987.

I am sorry to hear about your hijack :(

This is what you can do if you want Jagex to investigate it , go to hijacked account support page and follow all steps , but this will not bring back what you lost or even got informed of their findings.

If you already have done full scans with anti virus + malware finder program (malwarebytes do i use) , and those came back saying No treats found , do that not mean your computer/device are safe and clean , but rather their are something but we can't find it , then do you really need to look into all App's/Program's/Client's you have allowed into your system.

When you got control of your account again , was Auth still active ?
and what about your bank pin ?

Hmmm if Auth and Bank pin still are active , then do you have a RAT (trojan) in your system.

Did you of any chance use Runelite or Osbuddy client to play the game with ?

Yeah im using osbuddy but already for over 1 year never had problems with it.
And with scanning my pc nothing comes up.


its osbuddy, as well as runelite. the amount of "I got hacked" thread with "I use osbuddy/runelite" in them is huge..

everytime you input your data into it, its sent somewhere else that's not jagex. when that's done, it then goes to jagex's servers so its certainly not safe in the slightest


those that gave you that variant of osbuddy hold all your data and others, and they'll know your bank pin, your password, your IP, everything. most likely even your bank account value.

they'll wait until you get to the thresehold, which could be days used, or bank value, and bang, hack in and take everything you got.

they wont do it immediately ofcourse, otherwise you as a player would suspect why


at the end of the day, 3rd party stuff is "use at your own risk", its not officially supported by jagex or even allowed.
if you want to remain safe, use the official launcher.

Well if you haven't been on any of the doggy site's and haven't clicked any link's their was send to you (that you didn't request) , and your full scan with anti virus + malware finder program came back saying no treats found , then should you really really look into what you have pulled down and allowed into your system.

If i knew everything was secure and still was a bit confused over what it could be , then would i rebot my computer/device back to factory settings and start from a clean slate and try to avoid those things it could be. (Like those 3rd party clients)

Since both are active , can their only be 2 way's to breach your security :

1. You got phished (Where you gave all your information away , incl Auth code + Bank pin) Jagex will never ask about those 2 things or Some one close to you did (some one their had access to your computer/device and Code generator and knew all the other details.

2. Their is a Rat (Trojan) in your system , with that can they take control of your IP+Computer/Device (Spoofed) , this will fool everything and even show it was you doing it , even to it Was not.
