Out of the Blue

Well tomorrow is the official start for this year's E3, so there will be press conferences today, beginning with Microsoft's at noon Eastern time. These pressers tend to offer the revelations from the show before it actually begins, but the trend for years has been to pre-announce news and pre-release E3 media before this point anyway, to avoid being lost in the shuffle, but we'll soon learn just how many surprises, if any, the show will hold.

I commented on here a week or so ago about my buddy's D3 account getting hacked and wanted to update some of you. While I was playing my lvl 58 character last night I got kicked out of game with a message saying "you have been disconnected, you're account has been logged onto from another computer". I tried to log back in and my password had already been changed and by the time I could report it and get my account reset all my stuff and gold had been taken, including what had been sold at the auction house. I had a fairly complex password.

After reading up a bit on it I found that it's possible for another person to hijack your session while you're playing, so no matter what your password is or if you use an authenticator, it's basically a moot point. Blizzard obviously has to know whats going on here.
