    Hackers Break Into Blizzard’s Battle.net Servers

    Hi. My name is Allan and I'm a passionate Warcraft 3 and Dota 2 player. A few years ago somebody managed to steal my Battlenet account and I was very,very upset. Last night while I was trying to find a dota 2 tournament I've read an article about the same problem. It seems that those annoying hackers have started again to break into Blizzard's servers, which concerns me. I've opened this post in order to prevent you that our accounts are once again the hackers target.

    The article I was talking about was posted here : deviceseeker.com

    Blizzard's answer on this topic stated emails and authenticator info was released.

    It is absolutely recommended that you:
    Change your passwords!
    Update your authenticators(they must have released something)
    Check your emails and you should change that password as well!

    They did state there was no evidence of passwords/billing info being stolen and their passwords are encrypted as well so it would have taken a very long time!

    So the usual thing they say in order to avoid getting sued on the court.

    US account emails + cryptographically scrambled passwords where stolen authenticator information was also accessed, while only EU emails where stolen.

    Noting 'too' serious, just change your password and your good to go.

    Problem that bugs me is that they knew of this problem on the 4th August. How long have the hackers secretly had access for? It's clearly not a attack which was done to cause serious damage or to quickly grab what they can and run.

    Not a huge deal considering I only use my account to download games cause I can't find my CD.

    Thanks for the tip and I hope Blizzard sends everyone a free copy of either Wc3/SC/D2 to make up for lost property.
