LOTRO Game Security

Given that there is a possible security breach at LOTRO forums - see this:

I strongly suggest that all kin change their passwords asap.

Better be safe then sorry. Have fun and see you in game!

Good idea. I changed mine yesterday. Was going to post about this earlier but I had heard a rumor that password changing was disabled also, but since I could change mine that's clearly not true.

Given that forums and the game use the same account/password now, if they steal passwords from the web then they've got the password for the game too.
