Guild Wars 2 Password Attacks

Ars Technica has an unconfirmed report that ArenaNet has been experiencing attempts at unauthorized access to Guild Wars 2 accounts. These differ from the typical such attacks as they are reportedly the result of a breach at an unnamed Guild Wars fan-site, and that the perpetrators are now trying the username and password combinations from the site to take advantage of users who also use them for their game account. They include the obvious warning that this is not a good idea.

So now that people have had some time to play, how long a game is it? Speaking from a single player perspective, that is. I don't really have any interest in the PvP side of things, and from the sounds of it, there's no much else to do at max level? How long does it take to hit that point?

Probably on the level of an Elder Scrolls game. I've barely left the first biome so far (dipped into the ruins of Ascalon but otherwise stayed in the Viking winter lands) and have played for well over 20 hours.

Even running through early level stuff, you're level scaled, so you always have something to do.

I just f*cking wish they'd turn on the auction house. I'm sitting on like 500 silver ore I want to sell.

Edit: I had a hacking attempt from Spain of all places in the first week of launch but had email authentication on, and then I switched my password over to a unique password for GW2 alone and haven't had an issue since.

I have, however, seen stripped naked people standing in corners of maps today though, I'm assuming they were hacked.
