Final Fantasy 14 is experiencing an DDOS attack: A third party has attacked Final Fantasy 14, and Square Enix is encouraging players with easily guessable passwords or emails to change them and enable two-factor authentication.
According to a new blog post on the official Final Fantasy 14 website, the third party is trying to gain access to Square Enix’s account management servers by using personal information obtained from different hacked websites. For this reason, if your email address and password for Final Fantasy 14 are the same as your email address and password for pretty much every other website, you may want to create a separate password for your Final Fantasy 14 account and change it in order to avoid having your account compromised.
Be aware that Square Enix is restricting access to accounts that it believes have been compromised if you are about to change your password. Square Enix may have already emailed you instructions on how to reset your password if you are having difficulty logging in. Additionally, Square Enix recommends using One-Time Passwords in addition to everything else to ensure maximum security.
In other Final Fantasy-related news, fans may want to keep a close eye on the Magic: The Gathering scene at the moment as Wizards of the Coast recently announced that the franchise will be collaborating with a variety of different things, including Post Malone, Assassin’s Creed, and Final Fantasy. There was no indication as to what the Final Fantasy crossover will look like, or if they will be Secret Lairs, commander sets, or just full expansions.
We will not see this crossover materialize until at least 2024, since both Assassin’s Creed and Final Fantasy won’t cross over with Magic. That gives all of you Final Fantasy fans plenty of time to brush up on your Magic skills.
