Passwords
Quick guide to choosing a good password

Having someone hack or crack into your account is always a danger in a game like this. Most such actions are done by running some password recovery tools against the Galaxies Ablaze login handler to attempt to "guess" a user's password by checking commonly used words, dictionary files and random combinations. This means if you choose your password with care, it will be much more difficult for someone to hack/crack into your account and ruin your game. Here is some advice about choosing passwords.

Never, under any circumstances, use a password that is the same or even similar in any way to your login id or your planet name. Your login id should also not be related to your planet name in any way. The password should be random letters and numbers, including upper and lower case. Do not use special characters for Galaxies Ablaze passwords.

Example 1:

hamster, god, brain, superman etc.

These are VERY BAD passwords. Do not, under any circumstances, choose a word that is in any English dictionary. Never.

Example 2:

hamster42, braingod, mansuper

These look better, right? ... WRONG. Combinations of dictionary-words and just adding a number to the end is NOT good enough. These will still be guessed by any old password recovery tool. Do NOT use passwords like this.

Example 3:

h4mstr3ss, iamabrain, super98mutant

Now we're getting places. These passwords are a lot better than the previous ones, although they still have several flaws and could be guessed using a mutable dictionary attack.

Example 4:

jhg543rd, R67sfEK, Td10gES7

NOW we're talking secure passwords. Nothing is completely secure in this day and age, of course, but these passwords are unbreakable by means of dictionary attacks, and that means any would-be intruder will have to resort to brute force attempts at trying all possible combinations. Most script-kiddies won't even start on those because even with the increasing power of home computers, cracking open a password like the last ones would take more than a few centuries. Just keep the length above 6-7 chars, and you can rest assured that it's not your password that's going to be the problem. (Some American government agencies might be able to do it pretty fast, but they're not script kiddies and they probably don't play Galaxies Ablaze).

The difference between the examples is the increased character set, to include upper and lowercase (which increases the number of possibilities the hacking script has go through) and numbers, which broadens the possibilities even further.

Have fun, have a good game of Galaxies Ablaze, and

PICK A GOOD PASSWORD!
