    Exclamation Password security

    Please consider changing your password frequently. A secure password should

    - contain both letters and numbers
    - minimum length of 8
    - never be used anywhere else

    Why this is so important:

    - Hackers try to brute force passwords to get access to private cheats
    - Malicious websites may store passwords unencrypted when you sign up to them
    - Using one password for everything: Pass known by the hacker -> You loose everything (accounts/email/etc)

    Customers and especially members of staff should take this serious. Especially using the same password at nC and at some leaker site is most stupid. In general I recommend not to visit any of these websites at all. There is no undetected leaked cheats - for principle. Everything that is or has been leaked will find its way to PB.

    All these "leak" communities do is sniff your password once you sign up, try to hijack your email (if you're dumb to use the same password) and eventually use your nC license.

    Prevent any of these issues and stick to the rules above.
