Would you rather get no warning or notice about it whatsoever?

This is just a reminder, you should regularly update your passwords, not re-use or share them between accounts. In todays world, everything is connected, and we have to assume that someone bad is going to get ahold of our data at some point.  


I sold them to the black market at aeria prices

The only way I could be hacked is by means of keyloggers. Other than that, I'm completely safe. Thanks for the info but no, I'm never changing my password.  

lol if you have the right security then yes locally it'd be your fault for getting hacked, however I believe superman is hinting at the fact that aeria might have been compromised a lil bit, and you are forgetting that aeria is the company you have your account with and none of the information pertaining to your characters or account is stored locally.  


If you read the article, you can see that hundreds of millions of people have had compromised credentials recently made available for sale. This indicates that either some very big source, or many smaller sources have been recently compromised, and it is not yet public.

This doesnt have anything to do with Aeria directly... but we have customers who use the internet, and as such are vulnerable to such compromise.  

lol yup, so aeria might have been compromised. Thanks for the info lol, or at least dodging around what you should say outright rofl
