Keylogger alert!

By Svarthol

We're currently dealing with a number of cases involving keyloggers and hacked accounts with ISK and items missing. As usual, the trail leads straight to ISK sellers. Doing business with ISK sellers is extremely risky as they will not hesitate to employ tricks like this to get more ISK to sell. The best defense is to stay away from their websites entirely.

By Svarthol

Pilots are moving to Pure Blind in an attempt to join the famous mercenary Legion. More than a hundred have arrived in 5ZXX-K in the last week, after the Legion's readiness to mobilize during the recent war has reignited interest in them. Seemingly disillusioned with the current political and military situation inside the Caldari State, many ex-Navy pilots are making the journey in an attempt to join Mordu's Legion.

Youth Gangs Defiant In The Face Of War

By Svarthol

Pator – Excitement still runs high across the Republic in the wake of the Elders' rescue of the survivors of Starkmanir, and the youth of Matar are among the most galvanized in support of the war. Youths of Brutor Tribe especially are commonly seen on streets and stations these days demonstrating in support of the war, in some cases chanting Te'Rauhaka (ancient tribal songs of victory), or reciting some of the more fiery speeches of figures such as then-Parliament Head Malaetu Shakor. Idolizatio...

Offgamers warning!

By Svarthol

We have had a number of cases recently with hacked accounts and similar issues and we have found that a lot of them are directly connected to a certain website. This website sells ISK and supposedly EVE Time Codes (ETCs), though the ETCs always turn out to be faulty or already used. Players that go to this website and do business with them are running a very high risk of getting keyloggers placed on their system and subsequently having their EVE accounts hacked, and ISK and assets removed.

Sarum Prime – Sharp opinions and hot tempers are reported to have spilled over into the provincial politics of the Sarum domain this morning.
