Hi vontorgr, the thing is that I didn´t know about it. Ok, that I only want is to advise to all investors here, that´s all.
I hope I have helped with my notice.


It's really simple to prove if it was 'hacking' (which is probably wasn't), create a fully verified stats page here on myfxbook and make it public so we can see what is going on.

If you can't do that, then you're probably lying and just a really bad trader.

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

I am reading this topic and I am scaring about it. How is that possible? Please Norman could you show us some proof?

Hello guys, I want to warn all of you that there is a hack out there called 'Anticapitalist' that when it detects operations in metatrader it gets in it to wipe out the account.

My account of 65.000 EUR in Pepperstone was wiped out for this hack. I claimed to Pepperstone but they said to me that it is my responsability for not having any antivirus software. PLEASE, BE CAREFULL WITH THIS HACK.


Is this true? Can anyone else verify that it is true?

EternalRocks is not currently weaponized and in it's current state only propagates. (and of the ones released, you have inadvertently chosen to name the weakest of the batch).

You are trying to link Shadow Brokers (hacking group) to your issue (they target large financial institutions like banks) with a tool released by them (stolen from NSA) which has no payload, least of which targets MT platforms.

Keep your system updated, all known exploits have been patched since March. My current research shows no current MT4 or MT5 exploits 'that close trades' other than EA's specifically programmed to do so (don't buy and use untested EA's).

I'm really trying to believe and validate your claims, but every time your credibility suffers.

To everyone else, keep your system updated and if you are on older operating systems like 2000, XP, or Vista consider updating to the latest available release.

For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.

EternalRock is a worm that infects windows
It does not mess up with your trading.
If you are suspicious to be infected
simply change your MT4 password

The issue is simply between chair and keyboard.
Only idiot can execute unknown program or EA on trading computer.
Updating system would not help to cure human stupidity :)

@Norman66
Your statement has the same value as you were kidnapped by UFO.
Any proofs?
