Linking GW and GW2 accounts not safe?
I bought GW2 a few days ago in time for the head start, registered, downloaded it, blah blah blah, and of course linked my GW1 account to my new GW2 account.
Now a few days later I find my password had been changed on both games and, after changing the pass again, that my GW1 account has been hacked and just over 600K gone. Plus my vabbian armour destroyed and a bunch of other stuff taken with only the worthless rubbish left behind.
I'm a bit annoyed, but not overly fussed because I was losing interest in GW anyway and have 33/50. Besides I know there's not much hope in getting the stuff back. What I am concerned about though, however is how the hell did they get my password?
I've played GW for over 4 years now and not been hacked. Nothing has changed in that time to give hackers a sudden opportunity to get in to my account. So the only thing I can think it must be is the linking my GW1 account to my GW2 account.
I may be talking rubbish for all I know, but what do you guys think happened here? If I'm right then there's a big security issue here with linking accounts.
