Change your passwords!

February 1st, 2017, 9:19 pm

Attention!


It is highly recommended to regularly change your password, both on the server and on the forums!

There may be a leaked database circulating again - however the database was used on an old iteration of the script, and it was sold several years ago by a former owner/developer. (Algren)

The database contains old and hopefully outdated passwords, however if you did not change password in the last 5 years, you might be at risk.
It has been confirmed by one affected community member that he did not change password, which leads me to believe my thesis is correct.

Again; Avoid using the same passwords on copied IM servers, or other communities that may or may not be 100% serious/secure. Don't use the same password for the server and the forum.
Use unique passwords as many places as possible and do not use your e-mail account's password on gaming sites.

This is apparently relevant again, as players have been found using the same password on other less established communities as they do here.

Use different passwords for the different communities you engage with.
Even more so in-game passwords as they are not encrypted on all servers. Some people abuse this.
