OP  10/18/11 1:11:15 PM#1

Turbine has posted a new article on the Lord of the Rings Online community site detailing the possible forum security breach and what the team has done to end the issue.

According to the post, the LOTRO forums were taken offline to investigate the issue and to resolve the issue. Devs have indicated that they will continue their vigilance on the forums and any more possible attempts to obtain user information.

Even though this issue appears to be limited in scope, if we believe that your account has been impacted we will contact you directly. As an additional precaution we recommend that all players change their passwords by visiting https://myaccount.turbine.com. Please remember to use unique, hard-to guess passwords that are not associated with other online services or sites, and always look for and report unusual activity in your account to Turbine customer support.

Read the full disclosure post on the Lord of the Rings Online site.

It's not like anyone has been warning them over and over and over and over (you get my drift) to NOT link "real" account logins with forum logins. /HUGE FACEPALM !

Agreed, I can be counted among the number of individuals that have suggested not taking this approach multiple times.


Too bad that it took an actual breach for them to take note.

 There is risk inherent in anything. However, when there is this type of risk in something I dont need and can live without in my life, I will drop it.   I can live without MMOs that require financial information (in this case they responded saying they will remove all my credit info).

If you have EVER used a credit card or form of payment online, or provided personal information to ANY source, then you are just as at risk as you are giving those details to a gaming company.

This is the internet, there is no safety net, but there are plenty of people trying to steal your wallet and push you off a cliff.

Again, I dont NEED to be giving that information to a MMO gaming company, but I do need to buy shoes and clothes, (and I do so with a credit card)  online or not, and I accept that risk.  My parents have never used a credit card online and were scammed about 5 years ago when that credit cards database was hacked and had purchases overseas placed on their card (which they called up and had removed).

I left the game when they announced the F2P move and had them close my account as well. However, a friend told me my toons names are still on his friends list. So who knows what they did? Maybe my account is still counted as one of the millions that came to the game since F2P.

There is a risk in real life too, when ever you use your credit card you might be at risk to get your info stolen. In any case.. must credit card give you an insurance for this kind of thing but still if you still dont want to take the risk, well you might want to destroy your credit card..

As I mentioned above my parents had their info stolen from a CC database and did not have to pay (they did not have any CC insurance).  In the past I had an item that I paid for with a credit card that was shipped to me and did not work, the company never responded and they had actually went out of business that same week.  Called my CC company up and they reversed the charge.  I did not have to pay any extra for credit card insurance (which I think is itself a scam if your CC company wants extra for it) since it was already covered

This is pretty big, even though the forum passwords are salted, a single 6990 can bruteforce 10 char space in 30 seconds, not to mention most people use the same password for their email accounts.

bubblewrap and put some aluminum foil on your head because guess what, everytime you go to ANY store your info is stored on a computer somewhere and the servers used for transactions in physical shopping locations are not as secure as those used by online gaming communities. It's like the scare that occured when everyone started converging over to using nothing but credit cards, checking account cards. Those who were ignorant of the facts refused to shop online for the same reasons not knowing that they were just as insecure shopping locally.
