Blizzard Player Information Compromised
Battle.Net has been hacked!
A post by Mike Morhaime on Blizzard’s website confirmed that their security team had found “an unauthorized and illegal access” into their internal network.
While no financial data has been compromised, a list of email addresses for global B.Net users outside of China has been leaked. Other information accessed includes answers to personal security questions and information related to mobile and dial-in authenticators of players on the North American servers (that means us).
Blizzard recommends changing your password.
They also added that they’ll be prompting players on the NA servers to change their secret questions. Mobile authenticator users will also be asked to update their authenticator software.
“We take the security of your personal information very seriously, and we are truly sorry that this has happened,” wrote Mike.
