Mortal Online warns of data breach, advises users to change passwords

If you’ve been playing Mortal Online this spring or summer, you should probably be aware that a troubling data breach that happened last month has possibly compromised some of your information. The team assured players that the hackers didn’t gain access to any credit card information, but still, it’s not a happy day for anyone this affects.

“On June 17th, 2018, we were notified that our databases might have been breached,” the team posted. “At that time, we cut access to the website from the outside and started an investigation.”

Mortal Online’s team said that it is working to shore up the vulnerability that allowed this to happen. Still, if you’ve registered an account with the game, take precautions: “If you used a password on the forums or in the shop that you use on other sites, then change them immediately! We also recommend that you change your account passwords.”

Some day companies will implement and keep up best practices. You know, keeping our data encrypted, hashed etc, along with keeping their server software up to date. You know, good stuff like that. Maybe if there were serious fines and jail time for egregious stupidity by these companies we’d see a change….

These companies should be forced to purchase a year’s worth of security monitoring after a breach. Then maybe they will get serious.

I really need to get on a solid password manager thingy one day…need to find a good one that works for apps and not just websites.

Mine is called Microsoft Notepad. Deeply embedded where few would know where to look.

As long as you didn’t name the file “passwords”, that would work… sorta.

KeePass. Save ur database in a dropbox folder. Then it is accessible from anywhere.

I use Google to save all my passwords. I have a different password for every place I go. I guess if the google server where all my passwords are stored ever has a breach I am pretty screwed, but so is everyone else that uses it I guess. And I would assume google in and of itself. But I like it. Anywhere I log into Chrome with my Google account it brings my passwords over. So nice to have if you have to reinstall Windows or Chrome for some reason.

Been using LastPass for years. Works well on my phone. laptop, tablet and desktop. We actually made all of our children install and set it up as well. Got tired of them losing their passwords or using BS passwords and then wanting us to fix their issues.

My mom could use one of these as she always forgets her passwords then calls me asking me like I’d know them. LastPass is the one I was really taking a good look at.
