Changing your password doesnt matter, much sure you should do it every 6 month for anything but this only protects your account from wandering eyes, if you have a keylog on your comp, changing your password wont do much,..

It is somewhat a pain if you play games in a public environment like an internet cafe, but yeah I think if you are unfortunate to have this happen to you in a fixed location (your home) CCP should be able to reverse the problem,..

Saying that they should make it so ALL transfers require you to validate via e-mail before the transfer occurs, I think I would be pretty ****ed if I lost any of my chars, it isnt so much because of the SP but because of the name and actual work put into that char and well people identifying you with that char,.. :)

A good way to protect yourself from keyloggers, is to have all your passwords saved in a text file somewhere (not in "My Documents" and somewhere not in plain view), and then copy and paste them into the proper fields.

I would only recommend this if you're the only one who has access to your computer though, for obvious reasons.

Also, the more difficult your password the less likely you are to get hacked. I know there are plenty of people out there with stupidly simple passwords, or whole words, alphabetically consecutive letters, consecutive numbers, and repeating patterns which are all signs of a weak password.

Letters, numbers, spaces,and symbols, should all be used in your passwords, some programs and sites do not allow the use of symbols or spaces in passwords, but the majority do at this point.

Your account security is in your hands, and it's not anyones job but your own to make sure your computer is secure.

Do keyloggers actually fail when it comes to copy pastas?,.. I have considered your suggestion before but data miners and **** could come with the keylogger, tbh I have never been hacked or have a security breach, that isnt to say it wont happen,.. :D

The best way to protect your account is to never type your username. They get the password but not the login hehehehe.

Or they could just include something like:

Account Authenticator


Only costs $6.5 and makes it impossible for anyone to hack your account.


Thundirr out


That key fob idea is pretty good and I'd gladly pay a one time cost of under 10 for peace of mind with account security. I just hope that if they implemented it they allowed a many to one relationship.


Just confirmed, Used the same keybob on 2 seperate WOW accounts. Both accounts have different email contact info, so its possible to have a 'Many to One' ratio.

Thundirr out.

If this is really happening it is a poor show from CCP Sad

Surely CCP can identify if a character transfer has been made using a Credit Card with different name to the account owner?

Maybe CCP can send an email notification for confirmation of a requested character transfer, a bit like a forum activation. After all its accounts being hacked and not private email accounts?! Is it?

Perhaps players that are concerned about this could petition CCP in advance saying "I will not be selling or moving my characters in the next 12 months, if it happens it is not me!" If we do want to sell or move a character we can put CCP on notice of our intent, I'm guessing people usually know they want to do this sometime before they do it.

Another very easy thing you can do if you are affraid to get keylogged is use a virtual keyboard.
Which is available (to my knowledge) in all recent windows versions.

Start > Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard

It is an on-screen keyboard, where you click the keyboard buttons with your mouse, thereby bypassing any possible active keyloggers.





copy and paste FTW Very Happy

I surf the forums and clicky the linky all I want, cause I do that on my Linux machine. I play Eve on a Windows box and really nothing else, just cause running 3 clients is smoother that way. I can click all the links I want, your Windows based keylogger means nothing to me, bring it

MuhahaHAHAhahahaaaaa (evil criminal mastermind voice)

Pretty much this, I think when a e-mail change / account request is made, it will require the account holder to CONFIRM via e-mail if he wants it changed, this will prevent changing e-mails too,..

WTB more security,..

If we just remove the forums, then there wouldn't be any hacking issues.
