リスト型アカウントハッキング

Sega has sent out a warning stating they have confirmed evidence where malicious users may try to login to your SEGA ID. They believe these malicious users may try to gain unauthorized access through what Sega called "list type account hacking" or in other words, use leaked password lists to gain entry into your account.

This style of hacking occurs when a malicious user illegally obtains a list of Passwords and User IDs leaked from a company or service then tries to login with them. Through unauthorized logins, it is possible they may steal meseta or items, or abuse important character data.

They are currently investigating this issue, but so far, they have not confirmed any cases of leaked registration information on their end. However, with this style of hacking, if you use the same user id and password on other sites, you are at higher risk.

Sega recommends you create a unique password that you do not use in any other service to prevent further damage. They strongly urge you change it regularly.

You can change your password by accessing the SEGA ID Login Page (use lexilogos for captcha) and press the パスワードを変更する (left most button) to change your password. It will first ask you for your current password then ask you for your new password twice. Afterwards press the top button to register it.

Sega suggests that you:

  • Set a hard to guess password
  • Set a password unique to PSO2
  • Not to mention your password to others.
  • Change your password after playing in a public space.
  • Have up to date antivirus software.
  • Be careful of sites that may trick you into entering your PSO2 login information  (phishing)
  • Not to install cheat programs (which is also against the TOS)

 (We are not able to confirm whether this information was related to the recent major mmo security breach.)
