Thanks. Changed the old password.Cheers.
Seems that not even Blizzard is inmune to the myriad of hacks that are taking place these days. Sad.
what about people from the UK who play on US servers?
If you play on a US server, you should change it.
Was just about to post a link but I see Wowhead beat me by a few minutes. GJ
What a buncha jerks.
Done and it is even one that will help me remember something else
Preparing to change passwords...
They are updating the mobile authenticator software but what about those of us who are using a mobile authenticator that Blizzard no longer supports and which was grandfathered in? I have no desire to buy a new phone just to upgrade my authenticator software.
Actually...on second thought. I'm just gonna change the password on one account...the one I really care about (the other one only has a Starter's Edition anyways). =)
RIP people who don't change the passwords within a day or two. The lazy people at Blizzard don't even use case-sensitive passwords, which means that even hashes will be deciphered really, really soon.
North American-based accounts, including players from Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia should def. change password.
I was wondering when such a thing will happen.
Changed my password and spreadin' the signal.
Please, someone else with a little technical knowledge:Shouldn't users be changing their battle.net email addresses as their primary concern? The security bulletin shows that each password is encrypted with its own unique cipher, therefore cracking stolen passwords is likely to take far longer than any of the thieves probably care to spend trying. However, each encrypted password was attached to a battle.net email address that was stolen as plain text. Using the battle.net email address in combination with the answer to the secret question (which was also stolen in plain text, as I understand it), it's probably a cinch to remove authenticators and steal accounts.It makes sense to me that users should change their battle.net email addresses and use the new email address for ONLY their battle.net log-in. I mean hey, because my battle.net email was stolen, I probably won't do myself any harm by revealing that it was thehealadin at gmail.com. Good luck to anyone who thinks they can hijack my account now.
