    Default Password update

    So with the new password rules in effect, if your password is not "up to code" then you will get a message from the system. This is interesting because phishing websites will use that same approach to steal your password. "oh your password is not safe, Change it at this website." We were told not to believe any of these because we would get hacked if we put our passwords into these websites. But when the game system sends you the exact same message it feels a bit weird.

    Agree.

    Also they should just place a anti brute forcing, a symbol in password is useless if brute forcing is still there anyway. I’m assuming this additional symbol was made due to hack because of password guessing.

    It is very weird that there's no mentioning of it in The Gazette and they should have put one in there, still should since it's still relevant.

    Although some phishers might try to phish some passwords, because it displays it in the chat as a warning from system, you should be able to detect what's a real system message and what's not. You can only blame yourself if you fall for the badly written obvious fake system messages that ask for your password when it has been stated so many times to never tell it to anyone, not even to Ubistaff as they don't need it.
