    All the security in the world won't stop the likes of email bugs etc from happening. What we need is a change in supports mindset, it shouldn't be "something happen to your account? Go to the police!" - I don't know a single other game that tells its customers to go to the police if something happened to their account.

    Seriously, fingerprints and DNA are not the way to go to improve account security ... this isn't a criminal investigation, BP do not need access to our fingerprints in order to have account security.
     
    Blah and Omega like this.

    It is a game you pay money on and that should be secure as hell

    Making people hand over their fingerprints in order to play a game is a very stupid idea. There are no two ways about it, this idea is bad. You don't seem to know the difference between DNA and fingerprints either ...

    If we want better account security then there are much better way of handling it, such as making Uber items not able to be sold and changing the way support deal with people who have lost their accounts.

    People shouldn't be told that they have to go to the police to resolve the matter if their account is lost. If they are able to provide the first username, email and payment proof then that should be enough to confirm the account is theirs.
     
  4. funny thing about that account proof thing. Support told a friend of mine who can't access his email, and his account got hacked, that, he needs to give them all his info, with ID in order to get his account moved to a secure email.

    Hmm hopefully it's changed then. If it has then that's a much better way of dealing with things.

    I had a friend who clicked one of those scam links on the old forum like the ones that show up on this one saying log in here and get free stuff etc.
    He was told he needed to go to the police and have them look into it, he didn't bother, can imagine it would be pretty embarrassing to ask to police to get a game account back. However that was a while ago now, so hopefully it has changed :)
     
  6. Well currently on GA animal and apollon got hacked, from what keeqo told me. He asked me some things about animal being in chat trying to sell his account, because he needs to to give to the police.

    Same story as last time from what I've been told, spanish ACP etc, except this time it seems to only be aimed at S-L and not SLK as well. Baron was suspended for trying to sell his account in chat, but it was someone else using ACP to get on his account. I think Keeqo's account was hit as well?
    Another massive mess up, only plus side is ACP have logs so it will get fixed eventually like last time.
     
  8. I think keeqo is still fine. He told me only apollon and animal were taken. right now he's working with the police to get it settled. The funny thing is, the guy asking all of us to add him on skype and fb, used the same name as a guy who messaged me on facebook claiming to be a BP Employee and has tried to hack a few of us before.
     
  9. Show me 1 gaming site that u have to put your finger to screen to play! Quit watching syfy shows and get into the real world. Ok everyone give this guy the hope and put your finger to screen and let me know what happens. If its not a touch screen i bet you just get funny colors. Dont push to hard thow or he will buy you a new 1.
     
  10. And i will say it again no one in dark orbit gets hacked there accounts get cracker and taken if in fact that someone on outside took it. Hacking has nothing to do with account theft. Hacking is an art and you wouldnt even know if said hacker was in your stuff as they will leave no trace. Now a cracker leaves footprints on everything takes what he can and abuses the art. Get it right pls your giving ppl bad names.

    According the the Geek technical dictionary:

    "Cracker - This is the common term used to describe a malicious hacker. Crackers get into all kinds of mischief, including breaking or "cracking" copy protection on software programs, breaking into systems and causing harm, changing data, or stealing. Hackers regard crackers as a less educated group of individuals that cannot truly create their own work, and simply steal other people's work to cause mischief, or for personal gain."

    "Hacker - This is someone that seeks to understand computer, phone or other systems strictly for the satisfaction of having that knowledge. Hackers wonder how things work, and have an incredible curiosity. Hackers will sometimes do questionable legal things, such as breaking into systems, but they generally will not cause harm once they break in. Contrast a hacker to the term cracker.

    Just for the record OP; fingerprint scanning is more or less old school now. The technique in this day and age is called DNA Fingerprinting or the newer term DNA profiling but in actual fact it's not using fingerprints. I don't want to give you a biological lecture right now but maybe you ought to grow up and learn more about DNA technology before suggesting this daft idea.

    If you are interested, DNA samples are replicated using a method known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction); those samples are then processed through other lab techniques such as Gel Electrophoresis to separate DNA fragments. Techniques like southern blotting ensure the DNA fragments are conserved in a relatively stable medium. Radioactive gene/DNA probes are introduced which are complementary to the DNA fragments. Photographic/x-ray film is used to obtain a clear DNA pattern showing every fragment. This is compared with the accurate sample to determine whether the DNA belongs to the same person. (also used by forensics to determine a bunch of other stuff e.g. to provide evidence to convict a criminal in court) <-- this is the briefest explanation ever

    ahem..
    The point is fingerprint scanning is beyond ludicrous. First off we'd have to scan our fingerprints somewhere... on our phones or something and have that compared. It's not as reliable as DNA profiling. People can have similar fingerprints not to mention some people may have scarred or damaged fingerprints. (bleached or surgically removed)
    It also costs a lot to have fingerprints 'scanned and compared and compiled'.

    As it stands fingerprint scanning is seldom used now. DNA profiling is what's out there and surely you aren't suggesting we extract a small amount of DNA and ship it off to Germany just to 'secure' our account on a 2D space game.

    If so i'd go back to playing space invaders.

    This threads' days are numbered.

    Well you can call it whatever you like but it is being used in lots of sites such as banks and so on...
     
  14. Aw - all of this is pointless - all you have to do is get a website that limits the number of times you can try to get in the account - I mean seriously - 1,002,000 attempts by so call legit user really in a few seconds. Give me a break! One attempt every 30 sec. should do. That crazy swirl words you had to type in to verify as if you weren't high in the place was hard to read even if you were sober. The hacker could break into the server that holds your fingerprint or DNA - then what?

    I can't believe this guy is serious about this idea... He must have joined VESPID's cult.
     
  17. Or perhaps he himself, might be Vespid? But under a different name. ;)
     
  18. Hint: I said this a few post ago max log in attempts stops brute force entry tools. And if a hacker broke into the server he would leave it as is and not take anything. But if a cracker broke into it everyone better watch out!

    I say we all should just get the mark and move forward with obama plan. Hey why not convert all moneys to 1 currency and have 1 leader also. Btw I,m going to sale my retinas now to get a jump on the rest. Any takers????

    If that was the case all hackers would be braking into banks and banks would not use that Scan software if it didn't work.
