Battle.net Security Breach

Battle.net announces an "important security update," revealing Blizzard has discovered "unauthorized and illegal access into our internal network." As a result, they recommend that North American users change their passwords, though they say they believe that the information retrieved "alone is NOT enough for anyone to gain access to Battle.net accounts." They also have written up an Important Security Update FAQ with all the details on this, including the surprising news that "information was taken that could potentially compromise the integrity of North American Mobile Authenticators," which will lead to a software updates.

Diablo 3 comes out. Tons of people lose access to their character by what they believe are hacks.

Blizzard patronizingly informs everyone that there is no evidence of hacks, their (mobile) authenticators are not compromised, and it's really all just a case of a hacker being fortunate enough to have found passwords that match across sites, quite a surprisingly large number of times.

Blizzard fanboys scathingly dismiss any claim of hacks as "hate against Blizzard."

Two months later, Blizzard admits their network has been breached, their mobile authenticators are probably compromised.

So now what, fanboys? Gonna admit that, shit, maybe people who said they had an authenticator and who had a unique password and STILL lost access to their character were maybe right? Or are you going to keep sucking Mike Morhaime's cock until HE is blue in the face?

seeing how many fanbois still believes in this compagny , i would say mike morhaime's face looks like a plasticback with a "set to full speed" vacuum cleaner attached
