Good to know that Super is keeping track of this stuff, and Aeria's taking counter measures, hopefully good ones.

Enhanced account security is paramount, it's amazing to see what lengths some will go to in order to steal an account.

Thank you Supermanox for this information. Running Antivirus Definitions updates and fully scanning your computer via scheduled task on a licensed Anti-Virus software would help mitigate this threats. We as users of online games must be more proactive on visiting sites on the internet...make sure you know what and where you go and don't click on every link a friend or friends send you via text messages or e-mails. Always be on the "DO NOT TRUST" mode!

@Zimmey17: The difference between those companies being compromised and Aeria Games is that Aeria is responsible enough in Security Awareness and informing the community to be cautious. Those companies that get compromised lack of these awareness skills.

Oh really? I always found those warnings to be more self-serving, a ego boost to the security prowess of Aeria. Disingenuous intent, quick to point out others failures. Ect ect ect.....  


It is not like it is us vs them. Their customers are our customers, and vice versa. It is also very common for users to re-use login/passwords. It just makes sense to try to let people know what is going on, because it makes it easier for everyone.
