So I was waiting for a match on the new Free to Play Loadout when I saw an article pop-up on IGN’s main page labeled “hacked-by-th3pr0”. It was just a blank page posted under the account for Associate Editor Jose Otero. I had to laugh a bit because its mostly likely just someone using a script to brute force the password. Its just another example of why admin’s allow slack password requirements are bad for business. Come on at least have it 12 character, number letter and symbols that has to be changed every 30 to 45 days. Oh and it should also be a reminder not to use the same passwords twice!
Attached below are a couple of screens form the now taken down “hack”
