Diablo® III

In-game message legit?

I'm not running any illegal 3rd party software
I didn't install any "calculators"
I don't do skype
I haven't downloaded anything for Diablo 3.
I don't even have "screen shot"/Video making software to record my battles. (fyi - this should be built in.)
I own a Logitech but I've never installed they're "macro" software.
I play this game legit.

Yet, I got an in game purple whisper message:
[blizzard01] whispers: [Blizzard Game Masters] Hello dear players the system checked out that you're using an unapproved 3rd party software. Please visit http://GM-BATTLE.NET and verify your account information.
Otherwise, we will suspend your account.

No, it's a phishing message. You'd never get anything like that from Blizzard. We don't even have a way to send you a message aside from a system-wide notice.

Ignore the message and NEVER click on a link you're sent like that. It's very likely to lead to your account being compromised.

I didn't think that was a legit domain fro Blizzard.

But, how did they even get an account name that LOOKS like Blizzards?

You should hunt down the O'Riley Perl "CAMEL" book, highlight the chapter called "regular expressions", and hand it to the lead developers.
