Yes, I was hacked. The most horrible experience I ever had on WoW...My main had 132 days played on him at the time (136 now) and I was randomly disconnected on night during a BM run. Well, according to the people I was in Vent with, I logged back in, hearthed to Shattrath and logged out. It took me about an hour to recover my password (always remember your secret answer!), and when I logged in I found my character was on an entire different server! No gear stripped, save 200g, but in another world entirely. I contacted a GM, changed my password, etc.But the next morning, my password had been changed again, as had my contact info.Apparently I had a rootkit on my pc, I had to reformat my harddrive, spend a week in limbo with Blizz to regain control of the account, restore the character to the right server, etc. Was totally hellish. Luckily, everything is normal again. I still don't know where the trojan came from, though...
