Hang on a sec, saying that your brothers PC was compromised (which is consistent in 99% of all hacking cases) is pure speculation but accepting that Blizzard fubared security and allowed a hacker who played with your brother in a random open game to bypass their secuirty entirely is somehow less speculative??
You're misframing my argument. Blizzard has failed to implement basic security procedures that likely would have prevented such an exploit, like requiring email access for new logins or adding additional security questions to logins from a new location. My point about compromised accounts and public games was that many people have raised a connection and - as previously stated - there was no evidence that my brother's system was compromised and he was using one of the highest regarded anti-virus / anti-malware programs available. And the link I posted demonstrated that many hacks are NOT compromised PCs but other exploits and that Blizzard likes to just palm the issue off as being the user's system.

Again, people shouldn't need a PhD in computer security to expect to play a video game without having their account hacked. Blaming the victim is immature and counterproductive. Nobody is talking about how ridiculous it is that a video game can be so heavily targeted and need such different precautions to every other video game. People would rather blame somebody else that accept that more could be done for security. If nin wants to keep acting like a child that's fine but it's pretty boring.
