To all the fanboys blaming the users, get off your high horse. Don't get all high and mighty because your account has never been hacked.
All of my characters are gone, I've been playing online games for over 12 years, I know how it works. I havent visited any dodgy phishing website, i havent got a weak password, I havent revealed my password to anyone else. I certainly dont have a trojan either.
Explain all the news articles on Google news (3300 articles related to 'diablo 3 hacked'). There is alot of news on this.
Explain why so many people are reporting their accounts have been hacked all of a sudden.
Explain why people with authenticators have been hacked.
Moronic arrogant fanboys blinded by whats happened. Sorry guys, I don't want to hurt your feelings but this is 110% Blizzard.
05/20/2012 08:59 PMPosted by MystiKasTI had my diablo 3 account hacked today. All my items gone and gold liquidated. Blizzard rolled it back to where I was a day and a half before. Meaning I lost around 20 hours of game time play.
Going to assume you are just trolling
Nope, not at all. Security issues are caused by: Trojans, people who use the login credentials on another site, sharing accounts, logging in to clone sites. THIS IS THE USERS FAULT.
I had my diablo 3 account hacked today. All my items gone and gold liquidated. Blizzard rolled it back to where I was a day and a half before. Meaning I lost around 20 hours of game time play. Not only that, but from what I've read, it seems to be blizzard's fault. My password is a random combination of capitalized and uncapitalized letters, numbers, and special characters. My security question answer is also unknowable by anyone but me.
I was told I'd have to use an authenticator now to use the Real money auction house, and if it happened again, my account would be banned from the RMAH. What is up with that? Blizzard has security flaws and I get punished? So ontop of losing 20 hours of gameplay, I have to use an authenticator to login to my account now, and am teetering on the edge of never using the RMAH? FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!
I just reformatted this computer in anticipation for diablo 3. I have no programs on here but diablo 3, an EVGA overclocker, and internet explorer. I'm also on a secure wired connection, with a legitimate copy of windows 7. I know my stuff, I majored in comp sci in college. Don't treat me like an idiot. This is not my fault.
The security flaws are your own. You didn't protect yourself enough. I didn't have an authenticator for 8 years, never been hacked, ever.
