ArenaNet reports that it received 8,500 hacking-related support requests last weekend and another 2,500-plus by Monday, after a hack into an unknown Guild Wars 2 fansite.
They’re promptly responding with a load of common sense advice that everyone should know this late into the technological era: Don’t use the same password / login for the fansite as you do the game… or anything.
Many players are laying blame on ArenaNet for lack of strong account security at launch, while others are blaming the players who aren’t using the common sense. I’m making a public announcement that you should change your passwords just to be safe.
Those of you playing, how do you feel on the issue?
