    Sounds similar to the Great PS3 Hack of 2011. Brb, changing passwords.

    Good morning, pretty big news today.

    Well, at least Blizzard is being completely open about this. We've seen a lot worse from other companies

    What exactly would they say? Handling this type of issue isn't as simple as just running up and yelling THE SKY IS FALLING, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! We want to know which part of the sky is falling. The point is that you need to have your information ready to handle the people who will be ready to jump up and say their credit card information got stolen so they are going to sue. When it comes to people on the Internet "Expect the worst but be prepared for the best".

    There have been companies, MMO's in particular, who didn't say anything for months. Blizz has probably taken the last 5 days finding out exactly what got compromised to let us know what we need to do.

    Lolol Blizz hacked again. Remember 2007? Have they even fixed this Velizy Villac -problem? Google it if u don't know about it.
    Friend lost 100 euros about 2 years ago because of Blizzard somehow managed to lose his credit card info. A credit card gotten 2 days prior to only buy WoW subscription time online, from Blizzards website. And there's people that lost several hundreds, even thousands of dollars/ euros because of Blizzard. The money is used for server transferring if you lost money, the money going directly to Blizzard, so propably they haven't done anythinge because of the $€$€$.

    There should be an option when purchasing MoP where you can add an authenticator for something tiny, like £1/$1/1Euro for those morons who haven't already got one.

    Personally I've been using the free app for ages and have never had a problem.

    "But it's too much hassle, wah, wah, wah" - Bollox is it. It's an 8 digit code that changes every 30 seconds. If you can't type an 8 digit code into a computer in 30 seconds then having your account hacked is the least of your worries.

    Wonder if the hackers got access to Titan code. Probably not.. sounds like a battle net hack rather than a full network hack.

    So Blizzard should have yelled "we are hacked! we don't know yet what exactly is compromised" as soon as they found out?
    Because the Blizzard fancrowd would never dare to wildly speculate and make up stories that start leading their own life.

    People and companies still using the creditcard method? Hello 70's and 80's. Using a creditcard is like the most unsecured way of a payment method. I do sympathise with the people that are affected by this hack in any way!

    Eh, anything will get hacked if somebody has the skills and motivation. Nothing is truly secure unless it's not online.

    So me having an authenticator protects me how when the crackers have direct access to Blizzard's database? OH wait is doesn't! I pity people like you who lull themselves into the delusion that a secure connection to a vulnerable server will make your information secure.

    Considering the majority of people who stopped subscribing were asian where do you get your ideas from - under your pillow?

    Maybe some of us "morons" know how to properly secure our computers without it. If you get hacked, it's your own fault. An authenticator is like a drool cup for a majority of the wow population.
