Account security reminder

Hi everyone,

Regrettably, on March 16th, the account of one of our moderators was compromised due to password reuse. Fortunately, we were able to secure the account within 1 hour of the breach and revert all of the malicious changes that were made. We have reviewed server access logs, and there is no indication that sensitive information (such as IP address logs) was obtained during the breach. To ensure this doesn't happen again, we now strictly require all moderation staff to have two-factor authentication enabled on their accounts.

As this is only the highest profile case of a recent wave of account compromises both on the forums and in-game, we'd like to encourage everyone to enable two-factor authentication on their accounts. Additionally, we'd like to stress the importance of using unique passwords for every website you have an account with.

As always, if you have further questions or concerns you may start a conversation with me.

Davy
