Someone else logged onto robby game account

Postby robby » Mon Sep 16, 2013 3:43 pm

This morning I noticed someone else was logged into my "robby" username on Helmet Heroes. If my account said anything to you during that time, it wasn't me. My password was incredibly simple (I know, bad idea), so I'm guessing that's how they got into my account.

Confused me a good bit, but doesn't look like he did any harm anyways :roll: :lol:



And I trust the word HAD was used appropriately. :lol:

Hopefully he just tried a handful of passwords and happened to guess mine. Since I log on/off such a huge amount of times, I left it at something really short so I didn't have to keep typing long hard to type passwords. I changed it now, so hopefully he can't get back on now.

After listening to Defcon talks I've realized how wrong that actually is. Dictionary passwords are always easy to guess even though that has a TON of bits of entropy. You just have to do something uncommon if you want to make a long password safe. Taking the example and adding for example [$ in the middle would probably make it 100 times slower to crack. Because it's uncommon to have them in the middle instead of the beginning or end, those are uncommon symbols in passwords, and because the base dictionary password is long, adding a lot of other fuzz to their dictionary crack will make the program go through the list much slower so they're probably gonna end up ignoring it unless it's an attack targeted right at you.

(If you can crack 95% of the passwords in a week with a home machine, why would you spend 4 months on the rest unless you're specifically targeting an admin account)

Here's a 50 minute talk for you nerds there. I found it really interesting.

I use passwords with at least 50 characters for secure accounts, and also put in unicode symbols and accented letters in place of some strings or characters. A small modification from what Munroe suggests, but I haven't been hacked...yet

There is also an account "robscherer1230" that is impersonating you lol. He's telling everyone (or at least me) to enjoy the update and that each player will soon receive 1Million gold LOL.

No harm done yet (I think) but this might lead somewhere maybe..? :roll:

I meant to tell you about that...

Make it impossible to put vulgarity/ the word "robby" in any username.

A password should contain both letters and numbers.
Be at least 8 characters or more.
NEVER SHARE YOUR PASSWORD WITH ANYONE! FAMILY, FRIENDS OR STRANGERS, INCLUDING MOM, DAD, BROTHER, SPOUSE, ECT....

If robby had like a 4 letter password that was like all letters, then that was just being plain dumb. uber easy to hack.

Hmm, I think maybe for the next update (if I have time), I will put a little "ADMIN" symbol or something below admins name, AKA just me. I'll make a note not to trust players who say they are an admin unless they have the ADMIN sign below them... Which again, will pretty much be only me, lol.

Normally any admin has some sort of symbol or icon or has admin only items that make then stand out among normal players.

You could change your character font colour to red or something to symbolise that you are the admin I guess as player character name font colours are white and NPC names are yellow.....
