The passwords acceptable for the website are limited to letters and numbers. This flies in the face of good security practice of using special characters too.

Is there a reason why this limitation is in place, especially when this service provides a potential hacker with the ability to make bids using our accounts?

My guess is that it's down to the capabilities of the underlying database.

If so the question metamorphoses into:

'Are Gixen users prepared to pay the extra costs associated with a more capable database ?'

On the security front, I believe there is quite a lot of security in place on Gixen servers designed to ensure that Gixen accounts don't get compromised.
