Recently we have seen a good amount of hacked/stolen accounts on NATO. We are fairly positive that the reason behind this is tied into other ladders. Any clans or players that have joined other ladders need to know that anyone who admins those ladders may have access to a password database. This database can be downloaded and shared, and of course used to try and gain access to NATO. What we have noticed is a steady trend of exact password matches by the people that are hacking/stealing accounts. So if you are part of another ladder, you need to make sure that you use TWO totally different passwords for each ladder.

We cant account for the staff members of other ladders, and its fairly obvious that NATO has a lot of disgruntled players that love to find ways into the site and cause problems. So I advise everyone to do the following:

-Change your current NATO password. Use something alphanumeric and hard to guess. Use letters and numbers.
-Do Not use the same password on any other ladder, forum, or game related site where someone could potentially gain access to it and then gain access to your NATO account.
-Change your password on other ladders as well, or if you are not active on the other ladder just remove yourself.
-Change your email account passwords, your IM account passwords, your IRC account passwords.
-If you have a special email account just for NATO, then you need to make sure to always check the account. Do not let the account expire. I would suggest using your ISP email account, of course with a different password.

Make sure your password isnt the same as your email also. Because NATO sends a confirmation usually, or a change of password message. Make sure you change the pass on your email prior to doing this. I had this trouble quite a while ago with [nuke].

Another problem is that people sign up with BS email addresses that they only use to register. Once the account is inactive for a few months they can it. Another person can then go in and register that name.
