It happens and sometimes you can't prevent it. Some people are very powerful behind a keyboard.

A bit of an update/thing people might want to know.
Whenever you register on a gamesite, you usually give an email and a password (or username and password). If you use the same combination on fanforums or anywhere really where you need to register, it can cost you.
Professional black-hat hackers (in this case guys that sell the information/logins/etc) have no problem with hacking into a fansite forums, as these don't have the security options companies do. The information they retrieve will be tested (automated scripts with PERL mostly, available online) on hundreds of sites from banks, games, anything that's worth selling, email, etc. These guys usually have your username used there, password used there and the email registered with there, with 'there' being the hacked site/database.
The point I'm trying to make here is: use different passwords. Easiest is to put them down in a wordpad file or anything similar or use a set of at least 2, where one is for generic sites and one for email and the like. Even different user names might help.

Not sure if I voiced the point correctly, but I did my best.

@anyone having bad ideas after reading this: all information is available by an easy google search, so good luck 'hacking'. If you're curious: have fun.

quite simple really,

Don't go to third party sites (Gold Sellers)

Don't use same login or passwords for registration or create a new account just for gaming.

Don't go to third party web sites.

Don't answer suspect emails that act like they are from Aeria.

Don't go to third party web sites.

Oh Did I mention don't go to third party web sites. This is 99.9% of how players are hacked.

I would like to add if you do happen to adventure to a 3rd party website and you realize it afterwards it might be a smart idea to change your password. I would recommend changing your password every 3-4 months anyways. Depending on the Authentication of the 3rd party website you went to all packets sent is display in Clear text meaning they can read everything you did while on the website.

SO change your password and make it a long and not easily guessed. Longer it is more secure it is. To force hack a password meaning to figure out the letter, number or anything you used. the more bits the password contains the harder.
