Taken directly from the Adventure Quest gaming site:
Dangers of using Cheat Programs -- 6/3/2008 13:00:00 Recently, several hundred AdventureQuest players were caught cheating using downloadable programs. These programs allowed cheaters to bypass the normal rules of the game, often causing data corruption to their character data.
One or more of these cheat programs also had hidden username and password grabbing hooks which sent a copy of login information to the hackers/creators of the cheat programs. Some Guardian accounts were stolen by the hackers, but many *could* be stolen, if the cheaters don't change their passwords soon.
We also disabled many of the accounts known to be using cheat programs recently.
People tried to cheat in the game,and they not only corrupted their game data,but they got their accounts stolen by the downloadable cheat programs. This proves that cheaters never prosper.
