I am assuming that the programs for password protection are the same or similar between LOTRO and DDO. Are DDO customers at any risk? Why did the customers not get a heads up about this?

Not a DOOM post or anything, just a concern.

Based on the article, the hacked websites try to install the LotR password stealing program on end user's machines. They are not stealing them from Turbine.

Which means they would have to write a separate program to target DDO. Which, given the size of the user base, I doubt anyone would waste time doing.

Kinda like how no one wastes time programming viruses for Macs. :D

Use Firefox for browsing with the NoScript extension. Problem solved.
