October 3rd 2014: Savage Players of TH' - Please consider changing your passwords for the TH' forums.

For those of you who have ever played 'Savage: The Battle for Newerth' as of October 3rd 2014, and have registered for the TH' forums here anytime in the past (say from 2009-2014), please consider changing/updating your password that you use to access our forums here.  (And if your creating/registering a new account on our forums, please use a different password than you might be using for your 'Savage: The Battle for Newerth' game account.)

As of September 24th to October 3rd (today), there has been a serious incident in regards to user passwords for Savage: The Battle for Newerth game accounts -- apparently someone (or some groups of people already) have used an unauthorized script that reveals in-game account passwords used for Savage: The Battle for Newerth.  It's being said lots of Savage players were using the same in-game passwords as their forum passwords for places such as Newerth.com, other Savage clan forums, and so on.  

The result is that because some people are using the same password for their in-game account, and on various internet forums (and who knows where else) -- the culprits/guilty parties have been able to sign into other player's accounts in-game (inviting random people to clans, abusing Referee powers), as well as log onto some people's forum accounts in a few different communities already within Savage.

Anyone of you that have, or currently play Savage: The Battle for Newerth are encouraged to change any passwords that use the same one as your in-game account.  In-game accounts for Savage are currently disabled at this time, and from what I've heard, this means no clan icons will be appearing in-game, and etc.  

But it's still important to realize that your in-game password and anywhere else you use that same password for other accounts on the internet/video-games/forums is now no longer as safe before -- nothing might ever be really safe on the internet, but this incident makes it even more unsafe than before to keep using the same in-game password for anything else.



Again - Important Reminder:  Please consider at least changing your password right away here at the TH' forums.  And if there's anywhere else (other internet forums, accounts for other video-games) where you use a similar nickname to your in-game account (or even the same email address), consider changing your account passwords there too.
