technically impossible? really?
any people who's a bit aware of computer networking and security would tell you that nothing's impossible.
the probability might be low, and i believe that whats currently happening might be something different than this spoofing described here.
BUT, whoever stated in a previous post that, in a spoofing case, the IP has to be spoofed too is right, but the point is that it is perfecly possible to spoof this IP without even doing anything on tgt IP, so no way the victim can be somehow responsible / infected / whatever.
it is not easy, but it is possible.
also, regarding the facts (and only the facts).
- lotta ppl getting hacked (several hundreds, maybe more)
- only D3 account "stolen"
- seems only the last played character is targeted (to be confirmed)
this let the keylogger probability go to........0.0000000000001%
reason is easy, all those ppl would have had ALL their char wiped out AND probably would have also suffered of different sides effect, such as a paypal account stolen / bank acount / steam acount etc.., you know, something more sensitive that would, with no doubt, interest ppl driven by money.
so the logical conclusion is that,maybe some users are somehow infected, ut the majority of the hacked ppl had nothing to get blamed about, and the issue is somewhere server-side.
strange fact: the hack begun just after the mysterious server crash that happened the first sunday, and don't make me believe it was a planned maintenance from Blizzard, on a sunday afternoon.
so what would be great for Blizzard to do, is to keep investigating clearly this issue (and i believe this is their top priority when i write those lines)
OFFER the rollback for the hacked ppl, not fair for them to be punished a 2nd time
stop blaming the player, while it is a great thing (and necessary) to make them change pwd and check their systems are sane, it is really rude to just respond them "this is all your fault" while obviously, this is not, and more the time goes, more obvious it is.
