    This sort of thing is the reason why when they did the Battle.net changes I made an email account solely for Battle.net use. Also makes all those scams I get on my "old" email address really funny.

    for those asking / saying the authenticators can't be compromised, blizz already said in the FAQ section they were, all it takes is knowing the mobile authenticator serial number which is why / how windows desktop authenticators exist even tho blizz never wrote them. And the hackers got em, so yeah, in this instance, authenticators mean shit.

    Thanks for letting us know atleast ^^

    If they got the serial numbers to your authenticators on your account, managed to unencrypt the password they could get into your account, easily. However, what they said is "what they CURRENTLY KNOW" is that they cannot use the info they retrieved. If they did get the serial number it is as simple as downloading one of the few apps around that use the authenticator algorithm on the PC (For legitimate use) and plug the serial numbers into those and use it for people whom's account is protected by that.

    Nice to know our subscription fees are going toward good security as opposed to beer/pot/hookers/dividends.

    As if I wasn't getting enough phishing emails to that account already >.>
    Being upfront about everything it good and it doesn't seem that much info was taken.

    Another huge negative blow for BLizzard. And they even managed to screw the authenticators so they are worthless.

    I wonder if credit card info was compromised too and they're still keeping it a secret.

    The physical ones were unaffected, and the software ones can be re-keyed, so they will be fixed up quickly and the stolen keys will be worthless.

    Pretty sure they have to legally tell you if it was.

    On a related note, I hope they find the perps and tear them apart limb from limb, slowly.

    There's no way in hell they'd be able to hide that from whatever security experts they've brought in to help with this. They'd be in so much trouble legally if they tried to hide it. So I think it's pretty safe to say that your credit card will be fine.
