Another thing is to remember to log out =/ Especially if you're using a public computer. Also as mentioned, using an on-screen keyboard to type in your passwords is effective against keyloggers which many places such as internet cafe's tend to have.

Why not try virtual keyboard password input where player need to input password by clicking on virtual keyboard on screen?  


It may protect against keyloggers but that may not be the case here, what superman is saying is that there are several sies where their database was broken into like the incedent with the PSN breach

One big change I'd like to see is for Aeria to finally implement email verification for account creation, not only would this help with security, but it would seriously impede the flow of gold spammers across all of Aeria's games.  

A step further in the right direction is to have an email confirmation if there is an attempt to change your password.

Best practice is to change your password regularly and as SupermanoX stated, the use of strong password is recommended. The longer the password is the better, but using combination of Upper Case Letter, Lower case, and symbols such as %,@,#,$,!. (e.g. Th3C@t!sEye$) is a good example of a strong password which reads as (TheCatsEyes).

If you cannot remember passwords well, I would recommend you to get "Password Safe" google it and download it (it is free).

Virtual keyboards don't work.

It's 2011. Keyloggers these days snapshot every little thing you click. They can also record what you click and make a simple and small gif.

Safest way to prevent viruses and keylogger is smart practices and learning how to prevent it.

Perhaps it would help to require a PIN for specific actions like purchases & password change verification similar to how an account that is unbanned recovers and creates a new password.

Click board with button randomizer works wonders Very Happy. High Security sites use these very often, And I find that it works wonders as long as your password isn't easy to guess. ^_^
