I am prompted for a OTP every single time I log into the website.
Of course I disallow cookies in my browser. The first thing hackers look for on your PC are Temp files and Cookies. You just admitted to doing something similar yourself, yet those of us who know PC security are being shafted?
So, I should TURN DOWN my internet browser security for your game?
Sorry, but its pretty obvious, these security measures were put into place for those who know next to nothing about internet security, with no thought given to those who might have more secure systems than even you guys at Bioware have.
These measures were implemented by someone fresh out of an IT Security Management Course, without any research done into applied IT security measures.
Or, this is a ploy by Bioware to frustrate players into buying a Security Key?
In over 10 years of MMO play, I have never had an account hacked, or even had a Keylogger or Trojan program on any of the PCs I administrate.
That's ok. Your security measures only chase away more people from your forums. They know they can go to other unofficial forums where the security isn't so amateur, like it is here.
Sorry to say it, Phillip_BW, but you don't know what you are doing, despite your prostrations to the contrary.
Do your due diligence, then come back.
you sir have 2 problems, you don't know how security works and you dont know how the internet works.
There are a lot of place you absolutely DO want to disable all of it because the impact of untrusted code is high and the loss of functionality is something you don't care about. you have to evaluate the risk, the impact and the likelihood on a site by site basis.
You haven't done that though, you've just disabled things on all sites and said screw it, i don't care what loss of functionality I might suffer. Then you whine cos you lost functionality.
Before you go off on tangents about cookie stealing and all that, be sure you REALLY understand how those things are done.
p.s. I do have quite a bit of security experience and can debate this and anything else around security all day if you like.
