Default Guild Wars 2 account hacked

It looks like my GW2 account has been hacked!

I had an email to say that I had requested to change my e-mail address, and now I cannot log into the game at all (I get the message that my login email address is not recognised).

Please to not have any dealings with my character (Kabraxian) in game until I have this issue sorted.

Cheers

Trev

This has been a big problem and has been caused by you email and password being on some hacker database somewhere, I would suggest you never use that password for anything again, also same has happened so my brother Shaun.

I have heard since the hacking that it goes back to when the WoW database was hacked some time ago. I guess that the lesson learnt is not to use the same password in different games.

Has Shaun managed to get anywhere with getting his account back yet? It seems that there are thousands of people who have been hit with this, but so far no action from Areanet.

I have managed to get my account back, after roughly 5 days, its a slow process, but when you get it back, they make sure its protected

Good news Shaun. From their update today, they said it's not a 72 hour wait, so hopefully I'll be back online tomorrow.

I read one geezer on facebook who said that his account was wiped and he had to restart when he got access back to his account. Fortunately if this does happen, I haven't got too far into the game yet, but I would rather carry on from where I was.

Hopefully see you in game again soon!
