Diablo® III

Ummm...all of my gold and items are gone

Just logged on for the first time today and all of my gold and items are gone. What just happened? Did I get hacked? I never visit sketchy sites and I don't think my laptop has any viruses...


From the amount of people posting this exact thing from accounts with authenticators I am sure it's a server bug.

Except at least three specific people have been identified as involved with this mass thievery. I'm going to guess Blizzard already has their accounts flagged and are watching this. People are getting their stuff back so no real loss here.

Did you google these forums and then login in with your password on the top result? I thought some guy said the top page from google for these forums was a fake that some guy used it to grab passwords. I think he reported to blizz though and they said they would do something.

im sorry but all these idiots saying 'get an authenticator' is giving useless advice, people with authenticators were hacked too. So stop posting useless rubbish that doesnt help anyone or resolve this issue.

I think you should look at SWTOR, it was worse on launch day than it was here.


swotr had a way better launch...wtf?


AHAHAHAHAHAH

No. Not even close. SWTOR's launch was just as bad as the rest of the game, if not worse because of the hundreds of thousands of people from the beta posting about how their feedback was completely ignored.

A lot (if not most) major anti virus programs will not stop keyloggers and other forms of malware. You need a malware scanner (realtime)--and more importantly--a script blocker for your browser if you're going to play games like these.

An authenticator cost about $8 in the Blizzard store. You don't need a smartphone, however the smartphone app is free.

my account was hacked also , the games !@#$ed everythings %^-*ed blizzards idea of helping is not to restore your account to moments before the hack but to just rewind your whole !@#$ing game at least 12 hours losing 10 + hours of grinding hell. enough to make us all just %^-*ing quit

Agreed... SWTOR took the cake when it came to failed launches


If by took the cake you meant worked perfectly then ok. Face it blizz fangirls the launch of this game has been a joke all the way through.

Did everyone check to make sure that the server was set to their home region? I had read earlier that some people "fixed" the "hacking" issue when they found they were logging into a different region.

For some reason, a naked, goldless version of their character still showed up on the character screen in regions that were not their home. But when they found out they were in the wrong region, they switched back and found their character there in tact. Give it a try.

HERE'S THE THING:

What is more likely?

A) Blizzard itself being hacked, and your encrypted passwords/etc being stolen...
B) YOU being hacked and have your information logged or taken?

Which is more likely. Be honest. Which is EASIER to do? Really?

This happened to me too, all of my gold and items are gone.

Again, check to see if you're on the right region. I heard some people's region got switched after a patch. If it doesn't work, report back saying so. It's a shot in the dark, but who knows.

No. SWTOR had a textbook perfect launch. Launch is about uptime, not about how someone didnt like a class.

Honestly, with the authenticator I use.. even if i got hacked...it is still on blizzard because it is their authenticator.

B is more likely, and I'm pretty sure it's what is happing to most people here.
but this not exclude that A could happen. There is no need to passwords if you found the right expoit in their security.
There are at least 5 reports of hacked account with an authenticator attached that contacted blizzard support and the answer was "your account was not compromised, only your IP connected to our servers".
