The Free Trade Hacking Massacre -Powerbot.org-

In late December 2010 Jacmob and Arbiter decided to acquire powerbot.org by force. Not content with the modest profits from selling scripts, their intention was to close the RSBot source code and make it pay-only with prohibitively expensive prices similar to the Nexus business model. I disagreed with their plans and shortly afterwards they left.

Before leaving, Jacmob deviously switched the download link on the site to a version of RSBot that was infected with a password stealer. Having conspired with Arbiter to ruin the reputation of the site they intended to mass-hack accounts when RuneScape reintroduced free-trade.

Since many of our users still compile their own RSBot with SVN, Arbiter infected all his paid scripts with the same password stealer effectively conning his own customers. Arbiter has been using the aliases Gh0$t, NoEffex, Blackbone and others with a group of friends to coordinate this criminal operation.

To make matters worse, Arbiter created a closed-source fork of RSBot which was infected with a botnet. Anyone who innocently ran his bot would have been part of a large network of compromised computers which he used to launch a DDoS attack on powerbot.org.

We deeply regret not being able to detect the breach of our systems sooner. We will make every endeavour to tighten our security to prevent similar incidents. We have also upgraded our infrastructure with state of the art equipment and hardware firewalls to prevent DDoS attacks from causing too much downtime.

Arbiter has vowed to hack us again and will make every attempt to do so. Please be weary of his lies and threats. To date he has made thousands of dollars from his hacking activity.

Please make sure you continue to dispute all payments ever made to Arbiter or ArbiBots on PayPal.

Arbiters personal details have been obtained and are being passed onto lawyers representing Jagex. When they have confirmed to us that they have begun their legal proceedings, we will make a full disclosure on this information which includes tax registration documents, home address, telephone number, IP addresses, screenshots, pictures and more.

We thank you for staying with the largest RuneScape cheating community in existence and helping us to achieve unprecedented growth every month.

So, please change your Password, or you will be hack like thousands of other people!

German:

Ende Dezember 2010 entschieden sich Jacmob und Arbiter powerbot.org mit Gewalt zu erwerben. Nicht zufrieden mit den bescheidenen Gewinnen aus dem Verkauf von Skripten, war ihre Absicht, den RSBOT Clienten zu schließen und sie bezahlbar mit den unerschwinglichen Preisen ähnlich der Nexus-Geschäftsmodell zu machen. Ich widersprach ihren Plänen und kurze Zeit später verließen sie mich.

Bevor er ging, tauschte Jacmob (Administrator von Powerbot.org) den RS-Bot mit einem anderen infizierten Clienten. Nachdem er sich gegen mich verschworen hatte, wollte er nun ein Hack-Massaker durchführen und alle Accounts stehlen.

Da viele unserer Nutzer noch den eigenen RSBOT mit SVN kompilieren, infizierte Arbiter (ebenfalls Powerbot.org Admin + ArbiBots Admin) alle seine bezahlten Skripte mit dem gleichen Passwort Stealer effektiv gegen seine eigenen Kunden. Arbiter war bekannt mit den Aliasnamen GH0 $ t, NoEffex, Blackbone ect. mit einer Gruppe von Freunden um diesem kriminellen Vorgang zu koordinieren.

Erschwerend kommt hinzu, erstellt Arbiter ein Closed-Source Gabel RSBOT, die mit einem Botnetz infiziert wurde. Das heißt, er hatte außerdem noch zu jedem Client noch ein Botnetz eingeführt, sodass alle Spieler ein Botnet auf ihrem PC hatten, mitdenen er Powerbot.org angriff.

Alle, die mit RSBot arbeiten aus Powerbot.org, sind nun Teil eines Botnetzes!

Wir bedauern zutiefst, nicht in der Lage zu sein, den Verstoß gegen unsere Systeme früher zu erkennen. Wir werden alles versuchen, um ähnliche Vorfälle zu verhindern anziehen. Wir haben auch unsere Infrastruktur mit modernster Ausrüstung und Hardware-Firewalls ausgestattet, um DDoS-Attacken und Ausfallzeiten zu vermeiden zu können.

Arbiter hat versprochen, uns wieder zu hacken. Bitte müdet seine Lügen und Drohungen. Bis heute hat er Tausende von Dollar aus seinem Hacking Tätigkeit.

Bitte stellen Sie sicher, weiterhin alle Zahlungen je Arbiter oder ArbiBots auf PayPal zu stonieren.

Wir haben schon JaGeX informiert. Sie haben uns bestätigt, dass sie rechtliche Schritte einleiten werden, wie eine vollständige Offenlegung dieser Informationen, die steuerliche Registrierung Dokumente, Anschrift, Telefonnummer, IP-Adressen, Screenshots, Bilder und vieles mehr umfassen.

Wir danken Ihnen für den Aufenthalt mit den größten Betrug RuneScape Gemeinde in Existenz und die uns helfen, ein beispielloses Wachstum zu erreichen jeden Monat.

Jagex hat die Seite gekauft, damit weniger Spieler botten und es sie abschreckt.
Leider wurde die 2. Seite (Powerbot.org) sehr schnell berühmt, sodass Jagex im Endeffekt nur wenig davon hatte. Rechtliche Schritte können sie gegen BotSeiten wenig machen, da die Seite (AGB, Regeln) aussagt, dass die Inhalte nicht für Runescape gedacht sind (Jeder weiß, dass man es machen soll).

14000 Accounts zu hacken, ist aber was ganz anderes und wird straftrechtlich verfolgt.


EDIT: Ich habe alle Informationen aus Powerbot.org, ich bin kein Mittäter.

Hier noch mal ein Statement von Arbiter er sagt Paris wäre Schuld:
Hello faithful ArbiBots members. This is Arbiter here. The last few days have been crazy for all of us. While other parties are satisfied with feeding you all lies, I feel you deserve to know the truth.

Jacmob created RSBot 2.0, bringing RuneScape botting to the next generation. Though it was Jacmob making Powerbot a success, Paris was greedily reaping all the benefits. He was pocketing the funds from ten banner ads each priced at $1800/mo plus thousands of dollars in VIP and Sponsor subscriptions monthly. But that wasn't enough for him. He then made under the table deals to allow people to break the scripting rules that Jacmob had put in place. He had had enough. About a month ago Jacmob approached Paris with an ultimatum: Hand over ownership of Powerbot to Jacmob and receive 70% of the money acquired from the website. You see Jacmob was never in it for the money. He just wanted to lead a successful project.

Paris, being who he is, did not find that 70% was not enough money for him. Instead he hired Qauters, aka Liang, to attempt to maintain the bot that Jacmob had created. Jacmob kept to his word and gracefully resigned that day. It was also that day a new project began, RSBuddy. His goals of creating the best RuneScape bot did not change. He came to me, a personal friend, to help him out. Without a second thought I agreed. For the last four weeks we have been hard at work creating the new website and bot software. 48 hours before its release I notified Paris of my intentions to resign and an explanation as to why. Paris said that he would "defend his investment aggressively," but I never thought he would stoop as low as he has.

After a few days, free trade is released along with the unfortunate hacking of numerous accounts through RSBot. Paris saw this as an opportunity to frame me in order to take out competition. This would not be his first time as he has tried similar smear campaigns with KBot, a very successful bot in 2010. However, news soon spread that it was in fact an infamous hacker named gh0$t, someone who has been in this scene for years now. He acquired access to the Powerbot server and uploaded an infected RSBot-222.jar. Thousands of people downloaded this file and were infected as far back as two weeks before free trade came out. Once hearing this news Paris decided to push his lie further. He is now trying to convince people that Arbiter, Blackbone, NoEffex, and gh0$t are all the same person. Such an impossible lie is very hard to believe, and many members are starting to realize the truth. Paris refuses to provide any proof for his claims, because there is none. He is trying to frame an innocent person to hide a vulnerability in his own security and take out a competitor.

However, I can provide you with what he cannot. gh0$t has revealed everything to the public. His explanation can be read here: You must register and activate your account in order to view images.
In summary, there was a flaw in Powerbot's security giving him access to upload the JAR file to their server. Thousands upon thousands of innocent RSBot users downloaded it and found themselves infected. He then compiled a list of all accounts and went down the list on Febrary 1st, looting whatever he could. This security breach was caused by the new developer, Qauters/Liang. ArbiBots has been hard at work getting as far away from RSBot as possible as customer's safety is our top concern. It is fortunate that it was only the JAR that was infected and we here at ArbiBots do not use that. We use the SVN source code to update and therefore there was no malware in our version. However, this was just a stroke of luck and that is not enough for me. I, along with ArbiBots, will be porting over to RSBuddy, Jacmob's new bot project, a secure way to continue our RuneScape experience.

I ensure you that we will do everything possible to make this transition as smooth as can be. The API is different and we will require time to get everything back online. However, we are giving you all the bots for free! The reason we are doing this is because you all deserve some compensation for your patience and hopefully hundreds of dollars worth of paid bots will do the trick. It also allows us to get a lot of feedback from users, so we can make this product all the better for you. I repeat, all ArbiBots scripts will be free for a limited time. When this duration is up and we feel all our products are up to our usual standard we will restore individual access and you will receive all the scripts you have purchased.

For more questions refer to the FAQ we have posted here.

Though many will try, we will not fall. Long live RuneScape botting!

Naja, wem soll man jetzt nur noch trauen?

Powerbot oder ArbitBot?

Jetzt verwende ich keinen Bot, bis alles aufgeklärt ist.

@scared n00b; that's from RSbuddy

All of this information is biased, and largely incorrect. You can't believe everything you read.
