So I just went to check my email and I a verification notification that someone was trying to log in to my account from China... obviously, I denied it and promptly changed my password... but yeah. I'm kind of stunned. I've been making sure not to do anything stupid anywhere with this, and am only a member of this board and my guild's board, so I have to wonder...
I suddenly don't feel safe here.
Update: I change my information here and on my guild site, but this site was the closest to the information I previously had on GW2 (not the same, but close, all of which everywhere has since been changed)... so I'm going to venture a guess that if something happened for my information to be taken from a message board, that it was this one.
Just a heads up to everyone else out there.

.....Never let modern day travesties harm the memory of greatness.
I've said it before and I will say it again... I highly recommend to NOT use the same email address that you use for Guild Wars 2 for any other website or forum. Although we, the mods and admins of this forum, would gain absolutely nothing from abusing your information, this is a community run site run by a few fans of the game as a hobby. And although we do try to keep the site updated with the latest security patches, if sites from multi-billion dollar companies can get hacked, that means we cannot possibly guarantee that something like that will never happen to us. So play it safe: use a unique email address for your Guild Wars 2 account!
Oh no... I've had so many problems setting up my e-mails and passwords for both this forum and the game, I'm not even sure what my e-mail/password is most of the time. I actually had to save my GW2 e-mail and password in the launcher so I could actually play it O.o
If you have problems remembering which email belongs to which password, then I recommend using a tool such as KeePass. You will only have to remember one password... the password that you use for that tool. All other information you can look up right there.
