Hello.

 

I just registered new account and I've received e-mail with my login and password in a plain text. You should NEVER send passwords via e-mail (especially in plain text, but sending hashed passwords is also not safe). This should be fixed ASAP and will probably take less than 5 minutes.

 

You should also consider making Single sign-on (SSO) to create game and forum account.

Maikel Zweerink is the guy who has found a security flaw in WhatsApp and made an eavesdropping app to exploit this vulnerability. Found the article in IDG.SE. Posted via CB10
