All the spam mail I get on just 1 e-mail account and that e-mail account was only used at a major add-on download site to see if I would get spam from it and I do.

Recent activations means people usually visit this one add-on download site and get add-ons. Like others said, its not Blizzard.

You lost your account because of something YOU did. Blizzard isn't going to take your account and make you believe you got hacked. You say "they force me to buy their authenticator", that's wrong. For one, the physical authenticator costs next to nothing and secondly, it's FREE if you have a compatible phone for the app. Why would it be FREE if they wanted your money? Even if you didn't have a compatible phone, you can download an emulator on your computer. 

They now also have an even more secure service that is, guess what, FREE. The new service has you call a phone number and make a pin. After that they watch your account to see if there is any suspicious logins. If a login is attempted that is out of the norm, the game tells you to call the number, with YOUR phone, and punch in the pin you created so you can login. The hacker would need both your phone, and know what your pin is to gain access to your account. Again, this service is FREE. FREE FREE FREE. But I guess blizzard is money hungry and forces you to buy more of their products.

on this link its telling that we dont own the game even if you paid to buy it

2nd on a website there is a review of anti-virus for the 2011 one and its telling to choose the one based on how ricky you surfing the web and use your pc

3rd few trick can help: security update (symantec already told it ... on 32bit it take 5min to be infected if you surf without windows update ) ... 64 bit (it help cause there are not lot of malicious thing on it until they program more)  ... warez and porn (when you dont know where to get it and how be secure on it ... cracking software and game can get you lot of trouble

there are trap everywhere publicity video or jpg can be countain a backdoor or keylogger or both ... even facebook with farmville you can be infected by receiving a trapped item

to clonclude

all depend of the risk you want to handle

So if I use ddddddddddddddddddddd as a password, it will take a desktop about 8 octillion years to crack it?

I'm sorry but I don't sympathize, especially for an MMO website player. If there is an authenticator in an MMO....use it! simple as that....don't be lazy. There is a reason why it is there.

Gotta second this post.


I stopped playing the week after Burning Crusade came out, never touched my account.

That was over 2 years ago or so, but early this summer they banned my WoW account, i got the mail thinking it was a scam, manually went to wow-europe and logged, sure enough it was banned.


Now how could they get the information i havent typed since 2007.

Im even so paranoid to run scans every week on my computer, and never use links (always type in manually) and disable cookies, use no-script and different passwords and couple different e-mails on the accounts of different games.


Only time i ever got hacked previously was when NcSoft got their database hacked because someone doesn't know how to type in a disconnect to the sql in the end of the php script.

Only people with that information was blizzard and how people got a hold of em scares me, i had even a complex password that would take bruteforce attack 20 years or so to figure out even if they were allowed to run a continous script with no ip-ban after "a number" tries that im sure blizzard has on its servers.

Typical Blizzard BS. That is why I no longer play World of Wastedcraft, I let my account go inactive unsubscribed and packed my stuff all away in a box just incase I ever wanted to play again. I played my last 30 days and then faded from Azeroth..well I decided I wanted to go back a year or so I dug out my gear ready for some adventure. I went to log in...yes yes I know my account is I jumped through those hoops...only to be told Your account has been compromised...Ok cool I can fix this I get myself a Battlenet account or whatever they call it that fixed it for ohh about a day. I get up bright tailed and bushy eyed to play the next morning...Ohh dang what is this....YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN COMPROMISED...WTF ? Alright not a problem to Hades with that account..I pull out my secret weapon. Thats right a brand spanking new boxed set with the whole Lich King BS add on Pack... I remove my old game install my new game close my old account start a new account and begin play ohh yea..I play up to lvl 15 that day and go to bed only to get up the next morning to....Thats right you guessed it YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN I unsubscribed deleted and totally swore of WOW...Now with that being said I have ran and run ever virus protection known to Humankind, I know my computer isnt buggy because I do not have trouble with my E-bay or Pay-Pal which has several hundred dollars worth of stuff running through it a week. Why is it Blizztard can not keep their subscribers safe from the pilferings of gold farming terrorist? Well I am of the mind much like the author of the above article that Blizztard is some how in on it...because our 15 bucks a month and loyalty to buy isnt enough they have to make and extra six fity off of us too. They are like the" Loch Nes Monser on South Park all they want is they damn six fity...except the Loch Nes Monser only wanted trefity." Well I say to Blizzard and Wow as a whole go suck a Gnomes toe, I will not throw away anymore of my time and or money to a half baked racket. Would any of you put money in a bank that continuosly let it just slip away and wouldnt stop it or didnt know why it happened. Their is a problem with Blizztard and it is not the players.....

Use common sense.

If someone had access to blizzards servers why in the word would they steal all these selective accounts?  They wouldn't, that's why.  They would just steal ALL of the accounts.  That is assuming that's what they were after.  I for one, if I was going to commit a crime of that magnitude, would not care about your WoW account, as it is THE LEAST VALUABLE THING ON THE SERVERS.  I would personally head for everyones personal info and or CC info.  Those are much more valuable than your crappy WoW account.

Use common sense.  Blizzards servers are not comprimised.  You did something dumb and don't want to admit it or can't believe it can happen because you are Mr. Amazing tech savey guy.  You got with it.

I havent logged on WoW for 4 years. I have never ever had it installed on any of my current PCs. Yet all of a sudden I have begun to get phishing mails about my wow account in the past few months.

How did they know my login name and my email when I have never ever entered it on my PCs? And how did they know I had a WoW account with that login when  I have never ever used it on any of my computers?

No the security leak must be at Blizzard because I haven't had the info on my computers at all.

I wouldnt be surprised if people that have never even heard of the game get the phishing emails.

Welcome to the club. I bet you were made to believe it was your fault too, you either bought gold, logged onto your account from another computer, went to a website trying to find cheats or some other thing.

Me, i have never bought gold, never found the need to. I have never logged onto my account from another computer, i dont go to websites either, so am still at a loss as to how i was hacked, yet blizzard are addamant it was MY fault and the same goes with each and every other person who has been hacked. I have been playing online MMO's since 2000, only suffered 1 hacking.

Though my password was not changed, all my characters were picked clean, untradeable/disenchable items were deleted, each character was dumped in icecrown amongst the elite mobs, naked and with no HS. My low levels were dumped in a similar fate. I did get back most items on 3 characters, 5 days later i got 19k gold back on my 4th character (but no items) was told that had not been touched, i knew it had. and my paladin/priest never got any items or gold back (lost about 6k gold and alot of items).

Still, what really did piss me off was the fact that they really were adamant that it was my own fault. I know it is not my fault, i blame blizzard myself.

Yes it is clearly the users fault no way that Blizztard could be at fault. But you are correct they are most likely after the CC info and what not or maybe just sodomizing your characters and taking their gold for their sweat shop gold farming rings. At any rate if it isnt Blizztard why is it that several of us only have trouble with WOW and not like I said earlier Pay Pal E-Bay etc etc etc. Then again I really do not give a rats ass in a set of thermal under wear because I do not currently or will I ever again play WOW. So it was easy for me to fix....

and whoooppeeeee, we are hack secure.


btw, being hacked in wow only takes you about a week to get your stuff back (happened twice to me, yes my passwords sucked *G*), being hacked in most other games results in you buying a new account or changing games :)

just a thought.


Serious company like Blizzard can fix this without you need buy extra code in case of hacking the are atm lead mmogame company and the cant guarantee costum security that is lame and the only answer the say it is your fault...

Blizzard can and should guarantee that costum dont get hack instead the sale "hack secure" so get more money

I have been hack and have wait 6 hours to GM answer me and then i have email and wait 5 days before reset make password alot of wait time just to gave you reset code so you could change password

How come the author of this article says he never gave his account info to anyone, and at the same time says his friend Josh calls him telling him to check his account because it was hacked. This is all Bulls**t

I have had both my NCsoft and Blizzard accounts hacked in the last 6 months. I had both suspended indefinently and i wouldn't  have it any other way.
