Is your user name and password safe?
Recently the guild that I play in was devastated by a hacker. Our Guild Leader was away from home and needed his World of Warcraft fix, so he stopped by an internet gaming shop. You know, one of those shops that specialize in making online game accessible when you have no access to a computer.
All he did was log in to check his email and his running auctions and then logged off. The very next day I was online when his character logged in. He did not respond when spoken to either in guild chat or to direct whispers. Within a few minutes I became suspicious and went and checked on our guild bank. To make a long story short it was empty. Thousands of gold and all of the material contents of the bank were gone.
Here it is days later and Blizzard is still investigating the incident. Luckily our property was restored and all is well.
The moral of this article is to never take a chance with your account information. This is not the first time that players and guilds have been compromised after someone logged in at an internet gaming location or internet café. There are people out there who are actively trying to steal your information and your account or guild.
I know that that the temptation to do these kinds of things is hard to fight especially if you travel in your line of work. If your hotel does not have an internet connection for your laptop never go to an online gambling establishment, it is too easy to be victimized.
