Taken from GW2 Wiki latest state of the game

http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Game_status_updates  (sorry forgot to add source)

"Today a Guild Wars related fan site announced that its account database has been breached. That's important but just one of many apparent breaches of other games and web sites that hackers have been collecting email addresses and passwords from. Protect yourself by using a unique password for each game and web site account you care about, and especially be sure to use a unique password for your Guild Wars 2 account."

 

Like I've said over and over again..... I'm curious what site is was.

I called it out too and said it is too quick to put all blame on the players. I really feel like posting that old topic here aagain and show the rude comments by the usual suspects (GW2 fanatics) calling people who got hacked idiots, stupid and what not.

Well then, I guess people should change their bloody password and e-mails before they lose their accounts.

The folks who got hacked are "idiots, stupid and whatnot" because they used the same username and password on the fansite and in their GW2 account. Once again, and always into the future - it's the USERS FAULT.

It's the users fault. It's not the fansites fault lol, and certainly not the account thieves fault.  It's the user's fault. 

 

People are so awesome.  Instead of having standards for a better world, they rationalize the one we have.

I've never understood why so many MMO's choose to use email as the account name. Is there a reason for this? I'm willing to bet MOST people sign up for a MMO anduse an email that they actually use as email...meaning your account name (email) is now in use and out there in the internet.

I too think we should know what site it was. I think we have THE RIGHT TO KNOW! Not that I am signed up with any sites aside from this one plus my log in info and pw differs from my GW2 one. If one fansite goes under so be it but we have the right to know who is not protected. I bet the people who run the site didn't even say anything to all the people who are signed up to the compromised site. If I used a site that was compromised I would want to know so I could take preventative measures and also leave that fansite.

Lets go Arenanet get the Iphone and Android App authenticators out already! Other games have them. Just do not do it like SWTOR did and mess it up lol

It really isn't so much the problem of the email itself. It is the fact that they use the same password for everything. That is how they are getting hacked. Basically if you have a universal password you're most likely going to get hacked if they hack into a database and get your email/pw. Every game I play has a different PW than my email and a diff PW for every game.

I don't think I've registered on any fansites, so I think I'm safe...right? Is there a way to change the email you use for your account to a different email?

SO wait it's the user at fault for not using some common sense, but yet studios are innocent who don't use some as well? There are plenty of systems available in this day and age that monitor the origin of a log-in, as well as the hardware that said service is being pinged from.

Wow, they knew your character names too? (Isn't that one of the security features of GW1)
