Regardless, Blizzard flat out simply does not do enough to secure their network and player base period. If this were any other company there would be class action lawsuits. But because it's the all mighty can't do any wrong Blizzard, people eat it up and pat them on the back for riding the fail boat on a regular basis.

Like I said, so much misinformation...

So even though the likelihood of the problem being 99% end-user related, Blizzard isn't doing enough? They use a random key gen hardware, release free software for smart phones and they still don't do enough? This is all to protect the masses that are incapable of protecting themselves. To my knowledge, the only other game company that has done as much is Sony with EQ, and that happened long after Blizzard did it for WoW.

How about the end-users take their heads from their asses, shut their mouths and solve their own security issues instead of just pointing the finger at everyone else?

Here is another way to look at it. If I'm getting hyjacked in games by the same company and not the other companies, even if I am at fault, I have to think twice about dealing with the company I'm having hijack issues with. It's one of those deals, hackers are focusing on Blizzard. Perhaps it's not their problem directly, but it is their problem indirectly.

I have an account I stopped using 18 months ago. In it's idle state it was hacked, I get emails (hope to God the cc info is deleted), I try to log in to Battlenet and it states it's on hold. Now do I want to spend hours and days with this? Or do I just want to look at next game? So far I have decided on looking at the next game. Now I'm only one, but my guess is this list is growing of people that don't want to deal with Battlenet being hacked rightly or wrongly.

Also some games have additional pins you use in game to verify yourself. Some also have IP address checks. So it's not like others aren't going beyond simple user/password.
