Hi, I'd love to know when my account is going to get moved back to NA from LAS after the "hacker" transferred me there for getting mouthy with him on the forums.

Every person who posted on the forums is as much at risk as I was, so I assume you're taking this matter very seriously. What are you doing to prevent this access in the future?

Firstly, I want to say thank you! For addressing the security breach and taking measures to make sure people's accounts are safe once again.

I would like to ask about the credit card information. Has it all been removed or did you take some extra steps to protect it? I have a couple numbers on my account I use and I just want to be sure they're safe.

@Chess 435 - Yes, even if you have a strong password you'll be required to change it. However, if you've changed your password since the maintenance last night, you won't be required to as you would have used the new pw standards we put in place

Not necessarily, mine is way shorter and "strong". you can get creative and still let it be pretty memorable :x

This is a much better response to our recent security concerns than the contradictory statements and thread deletions we've been getting until now.

Thank you.

Did the hacker get our actual passwords?
