I just stole 800k from some guys account.. Bug?

Postby Deathbane » Mon Mar 16, 2009 5:03 pm

I got a mission to check out some guys load in i think, universal technology bank. I saw a guy with 800 k in his bank account, and from his bank logs he was obviously an uplink agent... was paying the 300 c to the company for connection fees.

Anyway, after completing the mission, i came back with nothingmore than the defualt gateway, max proxy disable and max log deleter and just stole his 800k!

I went form intermediate to uber skilled instantly, and after some log deletage on both bank servers and inernic, im apparantly home free.

Is this a common occurence? how do i find out who i screwed over? Will it be in the news?

I just got uplink last night after i realised i couldnt think of a better cyberpunk game to play other than Invisible war, its good stuff!

Yup. It's called Bank Hacking.

It's quite common actually, as once you hack a bank, you can go straight into a Techno-Mage. AND it's good income.

As for hacking the complete bank, you can always visit the admin section and check 'accounts'. It's quite fun, eh?

Always nice to find new things.

Frequency: Yes, fairly routine among players who don't care to maximize challenge later on (because once you have top-end everything, much of the rest of the game becomes trivial). Some players loot every account in a bank in one go.

News: any sort of poking at a bank -- even starting a password break and disconnecting -- generates a 'bank hacked' news report.

Name: Account name is visible on the same screen as the number, balance and outstanding loan. If you mean the Uplink Agent name, well, there's a good chance you'll be able to find out, if you look in the logical place.
