RIFT Account Security Measures

An Account Security Discussion Thread on the RIFT Forums indicates that an exploit in the authentication system for Trion World's MMORPG has been fixed, after it was recently discovered that it was possible to login to accounts without even knowing the proper username or password. This combines with a newly implemented coin lock feature that required further authentication for attempts to login to accounts from a location significantly different from previous logins to address instances of account hijacking. Thanks Game Genus, where they have further reporting on the circumstances surrounding all this.

Did you put in the code you got via email? /facepalm
As for the poster below who talked about being coin locked everytime he logs in since the new patch, read the fracking notes!

Listen to these fanbois. Just like Trion assumed it was the user's fault that their accounts were being hacked, the game's fanclub thinks it's the user's fault when their new system is bugged. YES I put in the code, every single time I login I have to check my email and do so. Hence, the complaint. /facepalm that
