    System Requirements and Account Security Notification

    In light of the recent malware and ransomware attacks, including WannaCry, MindArk has performed a comprehensive review of its security policies and procedures.

    In order to ensure an appropriate level of account security for our customers, MindArk has decided to discontinue support for Windows XP and older operating systems starting in Q4 of 2017.

    We urge any Entropia Universe participants still using Windows XP or older versions of Windows to upgrade their operating systems within the next several months. MindArk will provide information and support once the upgrade deadline approaches later this year.

    Account security is MindArk’s highest priority; we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in helping to keep Entropia Universe safe and secure for all participants.

    We also encourage all participants to secure their Entropia Universe accounts with the Entropia Pocket two-factor security system.

    more portable
    no hardware needs to be posted out, just need iPhone, Android (or google Authenicator on Windows Phone)
    no syncing issues due to codes going out of order, as long as your date and time are correct it should always be in sync
    plus they sent notifications when events start

    downside, it makes a loud bloop noise when you open it or renew code, it can't be muted unless you mute the phone... i hate that noise

    I don't know. If its not broken, I don't want to fix it. I've had the same Gold Card since 2005... literally the same piece of plastic and the words "Project Entropia" are almost completely worn off. It works fine.. no issues.

    while GC is supported, there is no reason to change really, i moved as there were times i wanted access to the web side at work, but card was at home

    as GC is totally unconnected to the net, its much more secure. only way its gonna be compromised is if its stolen physically, your GC is cloned (afaik all readers are the same, its just the GC that is unique) or someone gets the formula/list of generated codes

    According to data released today by Kaspersky Lab, roughly 98 percent of the computers affected by the ransomware were running some version of Windows 7, with less than one in a thousand running Windows XP. 2008 R2 Server clients were also hit hard, making up just over 1 percent of infections.

    Windows 7 is still by far the most common version of Windows, running on roughly four times as many computers as Windows 10 worldwide. Since more recent versions of Windows arenít vulnerable to WannaCry, it makes sense that most of the infections would hit computers running 7. Still, the stark disparity emphasizes how small of a role Windows XP seems to have played in spreading the infection, despite early concerns about the outdated operating system.

    When will you start supporting Linux and Mac?

    Another downside is when they fuck up after a patching event and don't have someone verify the App login to realize its broken your locked out of the game for an entire day until MA wakes up and goes to work and realizes they fucked up and fix it.
