    Account hacked.


    My World of Warcraft account was recently hacked and I've run scans with the following:
    Hitmanpro,Malwarebytes,SuperAntiSpyware, Doctor Web, but but nothing suspicious was found. I'm puzzled if I had a keylogger. Are there any special ways to detect/remove keyloggers?

    Hello and welcome.
    You can try Rkhunter. I would use a LiveCD to run these tests though. Anything you download anything, it has the possibility to become infected before you started scanning.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Of the four applications you mention only one of those has a Linux version out (Dr Web). So can we deduce from that you're actually running a Microsoft product and not Linux?

    If you're running Microsoft then there probably are a lot of ways to leech credentials disguised as something seemingly innocuous: an email, a "free download" application, etc, etc. It doesn't *have* to be a keylogger. And regardless of what OS you use it could also have been something else: like using a login you use for something else that got cracked. Not everyone is as forthcoming about getting their machines cracked as we all would like to see...

    Thank you, Mike. I will take your advise and try the Rkhunter.
