Rogers throttles World of Warcraft across Canada {Massively}

Mar 27th 2011 11:09AM Something they won't talk about is that there is in the ground what is known as dark fibre, The telco's are not using all the available fibre. So not only they over sell the bandwidth but they also under utilize the infrastructure, and they want you to think that they are at capacity. Then they will try to slip usage billing schemes into the system just like cell phones, Play WoW at unmodified speeds it will cost you extra $0.10 / Hr rate type billing. That is what the current CRTC fight is goin on right now as Rogers/Bell tried to slip that in.

PS. we don't have a Canadian Government at the moment, it collapsed on Friday to a no confidence vote in parliament so we get to do elections in May to put another Prime minister in power, Ughh.

Recent security breaches spur new Battle.net phishing emails {WoW}

Dec 14th 2010 8:40PM Thats correct for the @jfofla not @wow, you cannot use same number twice unless it was that rare compromised launcher that some people got infected with.

Recent security breaches spur new Battle.net phishing emails {WoW}

Dec 14th 2010 8:38PM That's correct and blizzard if people have not kept up also added fingerprinting of your system to the logon, so if the station you login all of a sudden is different you will get a request to verify it's still you. This was put in place so that when you play from two locations it now keeps track, so that hacker probably will not get in with a scammed token code in that 30 secs time window.

The Lawbringer: Account security and you {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2010 5:33PM They lowered it big time, I got 3 authenticators shipped for about 21$ CDN

The Lawbringer: Account security and you {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2010 2:36PM You should be treating security like Telecoms treat up time of the phone systems, by the five 9's paragon. Telco's and people who run critical systems ussally have a standard to make sure the failure of the system is minimized, so a Telco will operate 99.999% uptime thus reducing the chance of downtime. As from a security point of view this can also be applied.

changing a browser to FF and No Script adds a 9
Using AV adds a 9
Using malware scanning adds a 9
using a Firewall/router adds a 9

so far we be up to 99.99% chance of being secure

Add a authenticator adds a 9
Unique email for WoW account adds a 9

now we are at 99.9999% chance of being secure.

The point is add layers to your security, the more they have to work through the less likely they will succeed.

Don't panic -- Massively's getting a makeover! [Update #5] {Massively}

Nov 28th 2010 8:39PM Instead of getting upset be proactive and work around the problem like I did, the addon for Firefox and the code I posted makes the site a whole lot nicer to read. You can keep putting in your comments about the layout in the mean time do what I did and adjust.
