    I have not played EU in quite some time, nor have i used the forums, but it would seem somebody is attempting to access my account. Here is the email warning I recieved

    "Dear 5p34k3r,

    Someone has tried to log into your account on Planet Arkadia Official Forum with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address:

    All the best,
    Planet Arkadia Official Forum"

    I have not ever shared my password with anybody, including family/friends.
    Best Regards

    This is a concern. Due to the recent hacking issues, I would actively encourage people to change their passwords here on the forum, just to be safe. If you have any issues doing so, contact me immediately and I will sort it out for you. Bear in mind that I am in the middle of a run of nightshifts (till Friday morning), so depending on my workload and the timezone you are in, it may take upto 24 hours for me to respond.
