Hello all, I hae found and downloaded a zipped file that contains something that calls itself "Diablo 3 Cheat Tool (Exp Level & Gold Hack 2013)" the real name of the file in the rar is "Diablo III Stat & Gold Editor.exe". Unfortunately it is zipped with a password and I cannot get the password. I have seen the video attached to it and it looks like an original Blizzard tester's program. There is a non-zipped video tutorial, called "VIDEO TUTORIAL DIABLO 3 GOLD EXP LEVEL CHEAT HACK TOOL 2013", when viewing it, it shows a rectangular box, with the fields "username, below Gold, then three button-like options that say Supply Administrator Rights, Supply Maximum Level and the last Supply Maximum Stats". On the bottom, there is a last button, labeled "Edit Account". Now, on the right side of the rectangular box, there is a upside rectangle that says at the top "Employee Status" with "Cracked by GoldCHX", then below a genuine Blizzard Logo. Viewing the video, the person enters the account name, edits the gold, and selects the three buttons, then clicks Edit Account and pop-up warnings come up, but they say they cracked it, they press ok and then they get a new box confirming the change and saying that the changes will be seen in 2 or 3 days.
Anyone seen anything like this or has a rar cracker that works? I am trying a brute-force password recovery, but it is taking ages...
Anyone seen a similar program? Is it real?
I just wondered as it seems to be a dev tool for Blizzard employees...
These things are almost never real. Especially since your characters are handled on Blizzard's side. And no program is able to change that unless it's on their side. The fact that it says will be seen in 2 to 3 days makes it more suspicious.
Most of the time these things are used to gain personal information, either by using fake fields which are then emailed or commonly sent to an IRC channel. They now have access to this information such as your account password.
Or they are viruses used to hijack your machine and steal credit info and personal information. You may also be used as a ddos bot, all without knowing.
My advice is to delete this, and scan your PC with an efficient anti-virus/spyware. Also change your password to your Battle.net account.
