There's no denying that MMORPG security issues are on the rise and have been for several years now. As more people flood into the MMO space, script kiddies and social engineers naturally have more targets. Account compromises aren't always the result of end-user ignorance either, as several of us know computer-savvy folks who've logged into their favorite game to find their characters stripped (or haven't been able to log in at all).
Some game companies are fighting back, notably Blizzard
with its World of Warcraft
authenticators and NCsoft
with its new Aion
(which basically amounts to a second password). That said, ladies and gents, today's Daily Grind
is more concerned with you. Specifically, what would you do (or have you done) if your account were compromised?
Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
