Some tips on how to prevent being hacked:

I would say you can prevent 99% of the hacking if you follow those tips. They have worked for me. And I've been here for 7 years now. Never been hacked.

1. Have a long and nasty password. Mix numbers and letters together. Strongly recommend not anything related to your hobbies and interests or anything easy to guess.

2. Some people recommend changing password every so often. I personally think that's not efficient. Once the hacker has your password, he would most likely log into your account IMMEDIATELY, not a day or a week later. Though I do suggest change your password when you think you did something that might have exposed your password.

3. Never give your password to ANYONE. This is the most common scam people fall for. If you receive any PM from what-seems-to-be a gaia adm/mod/staff asking for you password to resolve some issues. DON"T give them your password! A real Gaia staff would NEVER ask for your password.

4. Beware of fake login windows! Another big one on par with #3. Don't type your username and password in anywhere suspicious. Make sure you're on the real gaiaonline website. Hackers tend to lure users to a pretend gaia site (I have seen some URL like gaiaonline101.com, it's not the real gaia!) or a pop-up screen that ask you to type your username and password for verification purposes. Don't fall for it! Just close the window. Those are often seen in the Exchange forum.

5. One other thing to watch out for is keylogger. I never encountered one myself, but I heard hacker would send an offsite link that seems to be loading forever, and if you switch your account, which is what the hacker likely to ask you to do, if that happens, anything you typed (your username and password) during the time that offsite link is loading will be transfered back to the hacker. So beware of not to type your password when some suspicious links in loading in the background, especially tinyurl.com links, since you can't tell where the link will lead you to.

All in all, a lot of emphasis on your password and be careful where you type it, follow those tips you will be fine.

It's too much work to find old threads if you ask me lol. Then it just kinda makes me mad and sad that they're not around anymore lol. Though I still dunno how to leave the old guild cause I'm a captain or something and I dunno how to demote myself LOL. And we just all posted a lot cause we had no lives. Or, in my case, no life and was trying to be an attention seeker LOL

Oh no, just finding a new place. I have a new job, never was fired. A business contacted me wanting me to join them so I did. But it's finding a new place... Ugh, that's hard. And good at least! Someone needs to be!
