After all these years I am confident that the website's security is safe. Vlumondoxasaid: I don't think so, most people get hacked because they are dumb and login on a phishing website.This is the most possible scenario on top of massive account sharing in the past. Evenso a lot of people still think account security doesn't need to be that tight or don't wanna be bothered as they can create new accounts within a second.
Louiellensaid: Just like any other domain, Runescape.com can be exploited.
But will a successful exploit can be pulled off? That is certainly the million pound question.
Runescape.com is a niche gaming site, so not usually under the radar of high-end cybercriminals.LOL you make it sound like you now have set a goal for new hijackers where there's a million pound to win if being successful. You still dislike the fact that Jagex isn't doing what you want Jagex to do, isn't it?
NonMax Jakesaid: Mod Lyonsaid: Original message details are unavailable. Can runescape.com get hacked?
Jeremy Chengsaid: Not encouraging it, but I'm wondering if the website's security is 100% safe or there has been data leaks from hackers and players lost bank. Because if the site got hacked jagex keeps tight lipped about it.
Its as safe as can be, to my knowledge there have been no successful attempts on our systems as of yet. Players do not "lose bank" because of database breaches (for example).To build on this, players "lose bank" because of database breaches occuring outside of Runescape itself. Not Jagex's databases.What you are suggesting, to my knowledge, is only possible if you use third party software or access a hackers computer thinking that you actually are in contact with Jagex's servers, which is not. If and when you are in direct contact with Jagex's servers without any inteference of third party software nothing is getting inbetween stealing your data.
