The biggest way accounts are ripped off is by the person running third party programmes to hack a programme---Examples Diablo WOW 2 games at bnet where users wanting to cheat got cheated by the cheat makers---Some suggestions have been made by people that they suspect such programmes are being used for seafight---If this were the case then the offer being made to the person for hacking the account would be seen small in comparison to what that person can get from the people using their programme if such exists.
In a way I wish someone would hack the account and then give details of how its done just to prove no programme is 100% hack proof. Yet at the same time I hope that people try and fail---And in this case also inform you that they tried and failed--this would put a lot of peoples minds at rest.
Or maybe you have a protokol which lists security breatch attempts made which you could print without giving away any of you security secrets.
Either way this is going to be interesting
Yes it is true not every system is 100% safe that is a known fact, but our point been, that if people had access to our systems why would they steal accounts? Why would they steal lvl 3+ accounts that do not have full pearl cannons?
Why would they not just create there own accounts? Since they have access to our system they could do what ever they wanted have what ever items they wanted.
The fact remains that they do not, that is not how accounts are getting stolen and this will prove just that.
The prize will be more than sufficiant.
