    At this time, we’ve found no evidence that financial information such as credit cards, billing addresses, or real names were compromised
    As usual, someone didn't read the entire post.

    EDIT : The answer is in the OP.

    With this information your authenticator will be USELESS, since they can write third party software, plug in Serial numbers and just get the same code your authenticator would produce.

    basically, go unpair your authenticator, generate a new serial, repair it and change your pass word

    and then go to EVERY SINGLE WEBSITE you use your e-mail in association with that uses the same pass word and change all THOSE pass words too
    I hope you have a source for this remarkably outrageous statement. If they had gotten over private authenticator keys and serial numbers they would not be saying:

    this information alone is NOT enough for anyone to gain access to accounts.
    Stop with this nonsense FUD.

    He can't because they're not. Authenticators are bank-level security and people who would be able to hack these have a lot better things to do than steal your game account. Such as becoming multi-millionaires and fleeing to some island with no extradition treaties.

    This is how a company should handle with a hacking problem, be completely honest with their consumers.

    I understand that there are so few EU players left relative to NA and Asian players, that I am guessing that the hackers didn't consider hacking that data noteworthy. So the answer is "no".
