You blame blizzard, but it was most likely your own fault.

You want Blizzard to help you, and then you're an !@#$%^- to them for something that was most likely your own fault. Nice.

Well lets see... have a password of at least 24 characters with numbers and etc. NO WORDS, Nothing you like, nothing you are familiar your with, you should write your password.

If you can remember your password. It is not a good password then.

And let's take a moment to thank everyone who patronizes the gold spammers, thus creating the market for account hacking in the first place. (slow clap)

Same story every time. This is your own fault - DEAL WITH IT.

Everyone always says "My password was 20310230 characters long." "I have 15 firewalls." "I've never had this happen before." "I've been playing for 10 years and never got hacked." "I never got to any bad website to download any bad things." "I have 47 virus scanners running." "I am a computer science major with a minor in system administration."

Shut up - you got hacked - your fault - get bucked!

From my very first network security class. If you write down your password, then you are definitely doing it wrong. Writing down a password leaves you very wide open to social engineering tactics.

Oh, and get an authenticator, too. If you've got a halfway-modern smartphone, the mobile authenticator is free. Download the app and set your account to request the code every time you log in.

Uhm, Breaker, no...that's excessive. By the time you're at 14-15 chars you're into millenia of brute force tries to crack if you just toss in a number, mix the case a little, and add some punctuation. Besides, one keylogger you don't find makes your 24 char gibberish written password moot anyway.

Go here to check your password. Play with it until it's at least rated "Strong."
