*sigh*

No ANets servers havent been compromised.

Its the same dumbasses with keyloggers and trojans on their computers that got "hacked" in D3 and TERA and WOW and every other game they play because they have malware on their computer.

It appears that customers who dutifully followed ArenaNet's suggestion to "create dedicated email accounts for GW2" are receiving those "password reset" emails.  If this is the case, that pretty much blows apart their theory that accounts are "being hacked into as a result of farmed accounts from OTHER games".  It seems to me that ArenaNet is trying to avoid responsibility for their own third rate security/authentication system.  In response, this guy hits the nail on the head:

 

"Has it occurred to anyone that there is a possibility the support website (http://en.support.guildwars2.com/) has been hacked?

Support ticket CMS has a notoriety for this kind of thing.. I'd be careful. DO NOT use your game email / password when registering on their support website!"

This guy is so BUTTHURT about getting his account hacked its not even funny. Talk about a streatch, lmao

It should be pretty obvious by now he is blinded by rage due to the incident and refuses to take any part of the blame for being hacked even if it makes no difference and ANet will obviously help him restore his account (the delay for this to happen is a real negative though even if it is impossible to have enough CS for one of the most anticipated MMO releases). He went pretty far to stretch into his conspiracy theory, not to mention going offtopic in his own thread just to call ANet amateurs.

Hell,   this morning I woke up to 13 failed login attempts from various Chinese IP addresses on my account. 

Luckily, the email verification system ArenaNet has in place prevented anybody from accessing, but I find it odd...  A unique email address and a completely randomized generated 12 digit / character password, and them damn chinese got it and were attempting logins.

 

So, the problems are certainly out there. 

 

And before the blah blah, security on your system, blah blah.   I do this shyte for a living, hardening servers, security, etc.   So, no breech on my end despite what any of you say.   Not complaining in the least either as the Email Verification requiring Allow / Deny access is enough to keep people out, but for people who use the same passwords on both email and game account...   Well.. they're screwed.

I've pretty much ruled out trojans, keyloggers, etc. in my case since I update and run SuperAntiSpyware religiously (every day) on my machine and have MS Security Essentials for the AV.  Plus, I make it a point to never click on links in email.  I always go directly to my account url any time I get an email making me aware of something to do with my account.  I've been doing this since the dawn of the World Wide Web and it has served me well.  That's why I have my doubts that it has anything to do with me.  

SUPERAntiSpyware is terrible software (some of the worst in the industry).  If you stake your PC security on SUPERAntiSpyware, and claim that you are secure because of it, then you really need to take a step back and reconsider your situation.

Here's the PCMag.com review of SUPERAntiSpyware: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2392919,00.asp

(It received a dismal rating)

 

Microsoft Security Essentials...  If I wasn't willing to spend money on security software, I might use Microsoft Security Essentials.  However, PC security is important enough -- to me -- to spend the extra dough on quality software.

PCMag.com review of MSE: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2403986,00.asp

 

If you really don't want to spend any money, then go with AVG Anti-Virus Free 2012: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2391931,00.asp

So what about Blizzard, SOE, NCsoft, Trion all had public announcements that they got compromised. What about that?? 

Why do you ignore this fact?

 

News flash *game companies are HUGE targets for hackers and they DO get breached*

Nothing makes Anet hack-proof, they are just as vulnerable as the rest.

Correct - I was actually replying to the above poster who said that it's always Trojans/malware on users PCs that is the problem and that game companies dont get hacked lol

Sometimes a user gets their account jacked and accuses the company of being hacked - this happens a lot.

however, as history shows game companies also get breached and their account databases get stolen as well.

 

Both of the above scenarios happen

You are right, not always. But at this moment for ArenaNet, yes that is the reason.

lol, find a real article.. no one was hacked with an authenticator. A VERY small group of people were saying they were hacked with authenticators but it was a lie, the authenticators were added after the hacks.

Blizzard announced their breachs DAYS after it happened once they figured what was done to them. If authenticators were in fact compromised do you honestly think D3 would have been the primary target BEFORE RMAH. WoW would have been raped left and right but it wasn't.. think about it.

Uh...I'm not sure if this is legal, but does anyone know of any software that can find your password for this game? I forgot what mine was, and while I have sent a ticket requesting a password reset, I still want to know if there are any less time consuming alternatives.

There were many posts in that link, I read some but not all. Arenanet was indeed searching for any people who had a new email account setuped exclusively for Guild Wars 2 and still received the password reset email. However, did any of the replies actuallly claim that they were such persons?

 

I am asking because otherwise it just means that Arenanet wanted to rule out that possible scenario.

Or, they could have received "Hacked account" tickets from folks who created new email accounts and wanted to see how widespread that issue was.  Either way, I still think it's something on their end considering how massive this problem has become.

I'm not buying this BS their putting out there about the fault being with OTHER compromised sites.  It just seems to me that they're trying to pass the blame since their massive ego has been built up by all the fanboys thinking they're the best thing since sliced bread and that they can do no wrong.

 

And I'm not buying into the whiners and finger-pointers.   Gamers lie.   Gamers lie all the time.    They cheat, they fail, they buy gold, they use mods and macros.    Then something bad happens and it's always the game company's fault. 

 

So, I say without solid proof instead of some BS artist on the Internet -- bull.    And it's not a fanboy thing.   It happened in LOTRO, Mabinogi, WoW, Eve Online and every other major MMO I've ever played.   Every single person I've known, or know of, who has been hacked was hacked because they were either stupid with their account information or they were hacked because they were stupid with their gaming decisions (RMT/MODS).   And, sadly, not one single one of these lying crybabies ever tells the truth about what they've done.  

 

It reminds me of the "I was banned for no reason" only to find out when they posted their account info and ANet looked it up, they were a bunch of homophobic, and racist jerkoffs...

 

 

 

I like this post!

You linked the article full of lies and you say it has nothing to do with what you're saying? What point are you trying to get across.. blizzard wasn't hacked months before admitting it.  I'm confused..

you are missing my point or im not being clear with my point

my point is this

1) many D3 players were being hacked and blaming that Blizzard was breached

2) Blizzard issued a statement that no hacks had occured (this link is in the article)

OP  9/02/12 1:29:39 PM#99
To the employees and fanboys of NCSoft/ArenaNet in this thread who insist that it's "keyloggers" or "malware" that is at fault for the hacked accounts, I've barely even played this game since the 3-day headstart pre-launch.  I logged in literally ONE day and haven't logged in since because of my busy schedule.  If my account/password were somehow farmed from a "keylogger", you'd think my account would have been hacked a long time ago (like during the prelaunch days).  Heck, there were 2-3 months leading up to launch that it could have beeen hacked if it were a "keylogger" since I've participated in some of the BWEs.  My account was literally just sitting there with no activity, and then suddenly it gets hacked this last Friday.  It has all the markings of a massive breach on their server, as far as I'm concerned.

Sometimes, when I think about how major corporations (think Apple and Samsung, for example) engage in corporate espionage, I come to wonder if video game companies are any different?  This year it was reported that the Iranian nuclear program was slowed a tad by a virus that was delivered aggressively from another country (I'm guessing that was us).

 

So I wonder if say, Blizzard, might have had some fun with A-Net's servers.  Just a thought ;p)

My god you GW2 fanboiz are absolutely amazing...If blizzards servers were hacked like that, EVERYONE would be bitching and screaming and yelling at them - Oh wait, they did...

But when A-net gets hacked? its blizzards fault still..
