Industry Security Challenges

Updated 4/19/13
We have seen an increase in compromised accounts over the last few months. It is clear that this is more than just a cooincidence. We are continuing to push for security enhancements, but here is some information about similar situations:

It looks like there is an issue with World of Tanks as well:

Also don't confuse winnti with wininit. Wininit manages your start-up apps.

Interesting.

Out of curiosity, can you specify what type of "security measures" you're taking? (Stronger Firewalls, a better alert system, etc.)

Neither has mine. Though I never install toolbars, etc. anything save for what I actually use / play.
