Update: Jagex has issued a statement stating that no credit card or banking data was dropped as a consequence of RS Gold the breach. "Further to yesterday's statement, we could confirm that none of our players' card or bank details were jeopardized," it said. "We operate with an industry-respected, fully compliant third party processor, to intentionally avoid staff having access to players' full card or bank details. This also applies when players choose to save their details at payment period for any future purchases. Jagex undergoes regular, third party testing to ensure we keep the highest security standards." A couple of months ago, an Old School Runescape player who goes by mazrim_lol on Reddit maintained a"serious data breach" had caused him to shed 45 billion coins onto his principal accounts. His claims were dismissed by numerous other players, several of whom suggested that it was his own fault for not even getting the account correctly secured, or he might be lying around it entirely. But it came to light today that he was not lying, which he was right regarding the data breach, which was actually an inside job at Jagex. "We affirm that a Member of The Old School Team has been dismissed from job at Jagex following gross manipulation of moderator privileges," Jagex said in an announcement posted now. "During our rigorous routine system tests, irregular activity was identified on limited number of reports, including the movement of riches and objects back into the live match ." "Following our evaluation, we could solve the problem prior to any significant effect was made to the wider match, or market.

He's also allegedly involved with the Reign of Terror clan, which has been accused of using DDoS attacks to impede competitions in tournaments, including a $20,000 championship that took place in September of this past year. Jagex said at the very time that its investigation had found no evidence of wrongdoing by Sanderson, but in the wake of this I anticipate it will be taking another look. In a follow-up post, Mazrim_lol shared an image of a message that he received from Jagex Player Support, telling him that, because of the"rare circumstances" of Cheap OSRS Gold the situation, it's decided to revive his lost riches. "We take things in this way very serious and, as such, we'd like to assure you that we've taken steps to ensure that an incident like this will not occur again," Jagex wrote.
