Guild Wars 2 hack impacts 11,000 accounts

http://www.shacknews.com/article/75656/guild-wars-2-hack-impacts-11000-accounts

Bottom line seems to be that fan sites were hacked and people who used their game password for the sites are getting burned.

4. Oh shit

I love GW2. I'll change my password immediately.

EDIT: Oh wait. I never use the same password on any site, and use a salt instead.

5. What is 'salt'?

Is that a password generator or something?

6. It's a way of generating a unique password

while keeping a password that has marks you can remember.

Example: P!eisD3l!SALTcious. Pie is delicious, and a salt.

GWsaltUlovep!3 is pretty unique, but easy to remember. It makes it a longer string, and infinitely harder *in theory* to crack.
