    And if we decide NOT to change our pic, you will berate us with a notice every single time we log into a character. Good job!

    Hm. The only way to change your PIC in EMS is in-game already, andis has been like that since the release. Strange GMS took longer to get it.

    I just spam "cancel/no" without thinking about it.

    Just change the PIC once and change it back again to your old one... it's that simple... I don't get why some of you make things into a mission.

    Hi Nexon. How about you make the game actually safer for us instead of BS measures like this one, which do nothing for security? The PIC is probably the easiest thing for a hacker to bypass anyway. Ever heard of the option of cell phone validation?

    but too many failed password pic attempts locks out the account

    A warning for those who try to change their PIC back, or at all: You can't use directly repeating characters in your PIC anymore.

    Oh, that's lovely.

    So now if a hacker gets on my account, first thing they do is change the PIC.
    Now, while I wait for Nexon's website and e-mail to be able to change my PIC back again (or my password), I am locked out of my account and the hacker can empty it at leisure. Can't hope to get on while they're switching chars.

    Nexon, do you even think?

    88888888, better mnemonic (couldn't use 111111 because it's the same as my account password)


    Still better than the derp they did on PINs - it was stored as an int, so if you entered 0000 as your PIN, you could skip the screen entirely cause the default value was also 0. They noticed that, but 0001 would still work by entering 1 for a while.

  13. Default Re: Changes to the PIC System


    @Girasol; how goes the Authenticator app?

  14. Default Re: Changes to the PIC System


    That is utterly stupid. Basic security flaw.

    Back then, were single-character PINs allowed?

  15. Default Re: Changes to the PIC System


    No, single character PINs were not allowed. Because they were stored as an INT, 0001 was interpreted as "1" so you could just enter "1" and log in. I assume this was changed rather quickly.

  16. Default Re: Changes to the PIC System


    i changed it to get that message away when relogging.. asdfadsf.

    When I said bypass, I meant bypass completely. As in, the hacker doesn't have to click anything.

    Just make it so we have to enter it at initial login, why would you want hackers looking at all your characters and stuff and then having to enter a pic.

  19. Default Re: Changes to the PIC System


    It lets you change the PIC even if you get the PIC wrong...
    I punched in 111111 and still got the PIC reset prompt

    *facepalm*

    Does it at least require the current PIC as part of the reset procedure? (After you click "Yes" to the reset prompt)
