Battle.net get hacked?!?!

Postby Holyblaze » Thu Aug 09, 2012 4:48 pm

Hi all! my friend just sent me a text that they just got hacked. They said no milling info was taken, but emails and such were.

Can ANYONE verify that? I am at work and have zero access to that info.

Thx in advance.

I don't have any way to verify, but I would doubt it. Otherwise, pretty sure we'd have heard from people prior to you (not that there's anything wrong with you, but I figure the chain would be hack -> reported by someone not at work, as opposed to hack -> email friend at work -> inquiry).

Bad ami. Yes battle net was compromised. Change your password and all should've fine. Blizzard has been very open about the whole situation and there's full coverage on mmo champion.

I stand corrected. I apparently thought wrong.

Silly woman, with your thinking.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

:(

Thinking you all would be quicker to announce it in Frustrations or Relationships or something. I know, I know.

Thankfully, Levie just helped me answer a poll on our guild website...
