Database Security Breach @ GW 1 Guru
Update your passwords NOW!


Saw this message over at the top of GW 1 Guru earlier tonight:

Quote :
Security Notice

It has come to our attention that there was a recent attempt to access data stored on the GWG server. The exploit was dealt with quickly, but not before the database had been accessed by an unknown third party. The exploit was injected through our old, out-dated auction software. The security hole has been plugged and we will be looking into ways to make sure this never happens again. [Note: This breach does not affect accounts on GW2G.]

I apologize for this happening and want you to know that we take this very seriously. Thank you to those that reported the issue earlier in the week. I also want to remind everyone to be diligent in your personal online security. Remember to change your password regularly (now would be a good time) and to make sure you don't use the same login information for your forum and game accounts.

Yeah, I know most people are all-but done with GW1 at this point, but this is still a serious matter. If you have account(s) at the standard GW 1 Guru site and/or their specialized auctions site, I'd change your passwords IMMEDIATELY. The timing of this and all of the Chinese-based GW2 hacking attempts (on various peoples' accounts) are too close together to take for granted even in the slightest. Even if your info isn't consistent across multiple site/game accounts, you don't want these bastards getting even one piece of your information that they could (potentially) use against you.

Just saw this on the top of GW1 Guru's site in big letters:

Attention!

Because of our recent security breach, we are asking that all users change their password. Even if you have changed it since the last notice, please do it again.

FFS Guru. Evil or Very Mad

Glad my pw is completely different, not to mention different emails as well for guru. Lol

Actually, gw has its own password. I don't use that one for anything else.
