    Default Network Spoofer "misbehaving", PLEASE HELP

    *I hate the stupid Android Central app right now, I had already typed all of this and it crashed*

    So it all started last June, at my friend Matthias's end-of-school party. I had just installed Network Spoofer on my Nexus 5, and I decided to prank him and the others at the party. I discreetly activated the troll face hack, then the blue-ball machine hack, the gravity hack, and a couple others. I let in run for a few hours. The prank affected the Xbox 360, all the iPhones in the house, and all the Macs in the house. After a few hours, I turned it off. But the troll face hack didn't turn off like the others. It kept affecting every device for several more hours. It eventually did quit, but that worried me enough that I uninstalled the app.

    *I'd like to note that I did thorough research on whether it was malware or not, and not one of the dozens of articles and forums I read even implied this. I would never install a third-party app without a thorough background check*

    A couple days later, Matthias's dad (who is a pastor) and my friend Jack's dad (an engineer or something) called me and informed me that the prank had been traced back to me. However, they just laughed, said they were glad it wasn't a real attack, and told me not to do it again.

    Weeks later, Matthias sent be several angry texts telling that all of his Minecraft saves we had made on the Xbox during the party (it wasn't exactly a wild event) had been wiped, reverted back to the original, unedited worlds. Then he told me that the troll faces were still on the Xbox and that files had gone missing from his dad's computer. He also said that someone had made several unauthorized credit card purchases.

    Weeks after that, Matthias told me that whenever he connected his Xbox to the internet the troll faces appeared on his other devices. He also said that the Wi-Fi would sometimes stop working when his Xbox was on.

    Then, he said that his father gave me an ultimatum: fix the Xbox or buy a new one.

    *I'd also like to point out that when his Xbox worked, Matthias had done nothing but complain about what an interior piece of Microsoft tech it was (he's an Apple fanboy). He would rant on and on about how much better computer-edition Minecraft was and how I was stupid for using an Xbox 360. And he was never online more than once a month in the time leading up to the party. So I don't think it's fair I have to buy him an expensive new toy that he says he hates with a passion and never uses!*

    As I said before, I've read dozens if not hundreds of articles and forums, and not one of them reported a single problem relating to Network Spoofer being malware or containing viruses. So what I'm asking is if anyone has had this problem, whether or not it is a bad program, whether it was the actual reason his family's lost money or files, and of course, help fixing his stupid Xbox. If I have to buy him a new Xbox, it'll cost me hundreds, and I'll probably not have any Christmas or birthday presents.

    (I hope this is worth it Matthias, you ******* *****!)

    Also, it's funny because he's always giving these big dumb speeches to be about being a good Christian and having forgiveness and how he's a better Christian than me. Honestly, I don't know why we're "friends".

    I can't solve your problem and I know you didn't come here to be preached to, but in the future please consider that "innocent" pranks often go awry and have unintended consequences. Sometimes very bad ones...
