Watch out for keyloggers!

2007-11-28 - By Svarthol

We have reason to believe that certain parties are asking players for their email address in order to send them files with embedded keyloggers. Not opening attachments only gets you so far, not giving strangers your email address is the best defense against this form of attack.

If someone you don't know and trust contacts you and asks for your email address, do not under any circumstances give it to them! This applies especially to players who are attempting to sell characters on the character sell forum as they seem to be the current target of choice.

If someone asks for your email, please petition it in the harrassment category. This will help us find the people who are trying to steal your accounts!
