Happened to me too. Only my wiz was affected, it was the only one that ever participated in a public game.

YOUR MOVE BLIZZ


CHECKMATE!
When will people realize..

These are hackers, their goal is to get your best items, get out before you change password.

So, they use bots which can move quicker than a human.

These bots are programmed using small scripts to avoid detection.

These scripts only focus on your last logged in character.

Think about it, when you logged out and got hacked, was it your last logged in character that was hacked?

Also, I've been doing public games from Day 1, I've yet to be hacked (Also gots an authenticator, but that is un-related if its "Spoofing")

Also, its impossible for such a thing to happen because of the way that D3 was created. I'm not a ITT techy guy, but I've been told a rough version of how it works.

Also, if they did do session spoofing, it would be on your end because the spoofer would be going through your Computer's IP adress or w/e which would require a hacker to be on your PC.

In the end, it would still be your fault.

Man, this is another fail blog post that keeps springing up. People take it as gospel without actually realizing its flaws. It reminds me of the RMAH conspiracy during beta and that one stupid blog everyone kept quoting is proof.
if i didnt already believe 90% of the planet consists of idiots, id be surprised people continue to look for random, no-name blogs putting blizzard down and posting it as a fact when blizzard has already stated otherwise.
For the sake of this game, I hope The White Knights AKA Blizzard Defense Force are assembling. This thing needs to be derailed, flamed and trolled into oblivion..NOW!

Edit: Whew! Nevermind, i see operation Discredit, Dismiss, Deny is well under way.

Topics like this tend to have the capacity to discredit themselves. Unfortunately, there are many gullible and naive people out there who may not realize it as well.

They have already addressed this.

Battle.net®/Diablo III Security Concerns

Over the past couple of days, players have expressed concerns over the possibility of Battle.net® account compromises. First and foremost, we want to make it clear that the Battle.net and Diablo III servers have not been compromised. In addition, the number of Diablo III players who've contacted customer service to report a potential compromise of their personal account has been extremely small. In all of the individual Diablo III-related compromise cases we've investigated, none have occurred after a physical Battle.net Authenticator or Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app was attached to the player's account, and we have yet to find any situation where a Diablo III player's account was accessed outside of "traditional" compromise methods (i.e. someone logging using an account's login email and password).

To that end, we've also seen discussions regarding the possibility of account compromises occurring in ways that didn’t involve these "traditional" methods -- for example, by "session spoofing" a player’s identity after he or she joins a public game. Regarding this specific example, we've looked into the issue and found no evidence to indicate compromises are occurring in this fashion, and we've determined the methods being suggested to do so are technically impossible. However, you have our assurance that we’ll continue to investigate reports such as these and keep you informed of important updates.

The best defense against account theft still includes smart password management (e.g. using a unique password for every site/service and keeping your password to yourself) and scanning for malware and viruses regularly, as well as following additional preventative steps found here. In the end, while no security method is 100% foolproof, the physical Battle.net Authenticator and Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app are great ways to provide your account with an extra layer of protection.

We hope this update has addressed some of the concerns you've had. In the end, we simply want all of our players to be able to fully enjoy Diablo III, and we've been working around the clock to address issues as quickly and efficiently as possible. We appreciate your continued support and enthusiasm, and we hope you and your friends are having a blast slaying Sanctuary's demons.
