I've encountered post online with the person apparently hacking apb accounts.

 

He has made pretty decently long list, and there are some accounts with g1c and legendaries. He posted account info with emails and passwords attached. I didnt test the accounts myself, for security reasons, but people claim that these accounts work.

 

Spoiler

 

Yes im aware that the image above looks like a joke, but i will not post the actual link to the forums because it leads to third party site.

 

There are at least 30 different accounts on these lists, and like i said some of those had G1C/Legendaries or other valuables.

 

 

What my question is, has there been any security breach recently? Is it possible that the account info can be hacked, or that this is rather done via third party sites (enter your email and password we will duplicate your weapons/send you 100.000.000.000$ type of stuff)


I tried. Im sorry everyone. Especially for you P.

Well its definitely happened to someone I know very recently. They got their account back and characters restored in the end but it took a while.

 

Heard from hearsay that if you want to best insulate yourself from G1's poor security you should definitely put symbols in your password as a minimum. So save yourself some trouble and go do that, I personally use password manager (lastpass) nowadays so I don't need to remember my jumbled pass.

Fishing and possibly brute force trying commonly used passwords. Instead of posting it openly on the forums to risk other player's accounts, submit it to support.

While ago, at the end of the last year I logged to my web account using my email and password, but system logged me into someone else's. I had access to G1C person had, ability to purchase things, all info as it was actually my account. After few failed attempts to log into my account I finally managed (I would log into accounts of random people each time with my login details) and immediately contacted the first person whose account I accessed to find out they were logging to my account and had full control over it.

I was pretty much concerned, not just because my account security, but also because I could be accused of hacking into someone else's or sharing accounts, so I explained my issue to the Support but unfortunately they refused to provide any info, I failed to prove my account is actually mine (I really couldn't answer to some silly questions regarding my activity from 3 years ago).

Anyway, so much about the security.
