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.

What do you mean your account was wiped out ? your funds have been withdrawn without your authorisation ?

Often , the best trade is no trade at all

It is not about withdrawal , it is about 'hack', because I tried to open demo accounts in other brokers and happend the same.
I downloaded EA´s from a Russian forums and I should have gotten a virus.

Be carefull with Russian Forum, and their EA´s, you could lose all your money.

I have seen this for ninjatrader too, apparently is fairly new.

May 25th, 2016. Then redirects to something they want to sell. Good advertising campaign!

Where did your money go to ? your funds should not be disappeared , unless they were withdrawn by someone.

Sounds like a forced margin call (opened many trades [operations]). Also sounds to me like it's not a virus but ran an untested (or tested on live account) issue. ('I downloaded EA´s from a Russian forums')

If you download and use an EA and don't test it on demo account first, it's your own stupidity.

I created a similar EA by accident once, had close bracket in wrong place and my open order was within a for loop, opened a trade on every tick... sounds like the same thing but released on purpose.

DON'T RUN UNKNOWN AND/OR UNTESTED EA'S ON LIVE ACCOUNTS.

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