Guild Wars 2 security issues: ArenaNet issues account protection guide

Friday, 21 September 2012 09:17 GMT By Dave Cook

Guild Wars 2 developer ArenaNet has been dealing with a lot of security issues lately, although it has done so with admirable transparency. Keeping the trend alive, studio hear Mike O’Brien has issued a security statement that explains breaches, and how players can protect themselves from them.

O’Brien’s post goes into known security issues within Guild Wars 2. The statement covers email authentication, two-factor authentication, database breaches, password blacklisting and much more.

It’s a comprehensive guide, and should go some way to answering questions players have been asking of the studio lately.

Meanwhile the first Guild Wars 2 expansion and free DLC updates were teased recently. Check out what ArenaNet had to say here.
