I believe, that British Airways's site is secured "https"
When was it, that they got hacked? A couple of months ago? Smile

It's a valid concern. Especially for a site with a login, it should support https. Anyone on the same network, can see your username and password, as it is not encrypted. Since lots of people use the same credentials on other sites (maybe even some poker sites, where you have money), its not far fetched that some of them lose their bankroll this way...

Either way, don't re-use passwords on other sites. That goes double for sites without an SSL certificate (https).

Honestly what is the worst thing people could do to you here if you loose your credentials - taking all your mob shots and trying to crack the safe when it is only on twenty bucks? It's not like valuable things here besides your points and those cannot be transferred anyway.
Just download an add-on to your browser which forces your connection to always go through 'https'

We are working on it, we have new server ready but the designer got delayed so everything has been pushed months Sad

Also you need to be a bit realistic, like what bowie says, what's the worst that can happen - they can post int he forum and play the mob games with your account... if someone has $50 worth of mob points available for cashout, and a "hacker" would login and request a cashout, and it's to another e-mail address than the user has used before, we will see it and investigate.

And of course, NEVER use the same password for "important" that has access to your credit card etc., that you do on forum-based websites.

Conclusion: It's coming!

Great!

A good percentage of people do use the same credentials everywhere (sadly). As this is a poker related site someone that sniffs these credentials on a public wifi, might be tempted to try them on the various poker sites, and steal your bankroll. I doubt that has happened to anyone so far, since a few dots need to be connected to exploit this, but still... Good that this issue will be resolved soon!

Tony would make the intruder 'sleep with the fishes' like Luca Brasi did. No doubt, no doubt. Blink

Those e-mails are just spam/phishing. As you say, you don't have a webcam, so already there is proof that it's fake. I get those e-mails too. And it has nothing to do with BRM, I get them on e-mails that I never had any association with BRM. You can enter your e-mail address on https://haveibeenpwned.com and see some of the breaches where your e-mail and password are leaked from. So it's a powerful phishing scam because they know the password that the victim has used somewhere, sometime. We can't see your password though, it's stored one-way encrypted.
