Post subject:  GamesCampus wants you to Protect Yourself!

With the recent rash of DDoS Attacks on our game servers, we’d like to take a moment and remind everyone how to ensure your computer, and payment information safe and secure. Our investigation of these DDoS attacks has shown that the attack is using Stolen PayPal and Credit Card information. While these stolen accounts aren't connected to GamesCampus users, we want to give you some guidance on secure your PC and billing information.

1. Avoid downloading 3rd party programs. If it seems like it’s too good to be true it probably is. There are no programs that are safe that improve GamesCampus games legitimately. You might think it’s no big deal to download a mod or “hack” but odds are it’s something designed to hijack your account, or worse, your entire PC. Many hacks or mods will include Trojans which compromises your account information, or viruses which hijack your PC.

2. Avoid browsing risky websites. A lot of users think that browsing websites for mods, guides, or other more questionable content are safe and don’t put your account at risk, however, many sites can run scripts, a list of commands that are executed, which will install malware or other dangerous files. Avoid browsing untrusted sites, and use browsers like Google Chrome (http://www.google.com/chrome) or Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/firefox-download), and install add-ons such as AdBlock Plus (https://adblockplus.org/), and NoScript (https://noscript.net/) extensions.

3. Avoid donating with Paypal to untrusted sources. We know there are many great multiplayer games that are run on public servers. In particular, games like Minecraft have a huge amount multiplayer servers to choose from. Unfortunately, many of these servers are run by untrustworthy people. We recommend avoid donating or “paying” any of these privately run server hosts. There is no multiplayer server that is trustworthy that allows a paid “OP” or “admin” options.

We hope that these tips, along with other cyber security tips you can find here, https://www.google.com/safetycenter/everyone/start/ will help you keep your accounts secure and PC working to the best of your ability.
