Diablo III Hacking?

A bunch of threads on the Diablo III forums from players who've experienced unauthorized access to their accounts suggest their may be a security issue with the action/RPG sequel or that the game's future support of real-money auctions has attracted more hacking attempts than one would consider normal. The threads in question are: Ummm...all of my gold and items are gone, Hacked. GG Online Only Single Player DRM, Hacked with an authenticator, and The hacker found (with screenshot). Thanks nin.

He showed me the other character when we all played at my office "yes, I have 4 gaming pc's in my office at my Sports Bar". His original character was pretty new so the reason nothing was taken was probably because he didn't have anything worth taking. I told him to make sure to get the most updated antivirus and scan his main pc for adware/spyware/virii, ect... Also made sure he changed his account password and his email account password, just in case it was hacked as well.

I'd also go to bleepingcomputer and download combofix and run a scan for a rootkit.

I've noticed the majority of viruses I'm dealing with these days are rootkits and not normal "viruses". I almost never see a traditional virus any more. Just malware and rootkits.

I want to say the times I tried combofix here at work, it tore up more shit than it fixed...

I only ever use combofix on a computer when malwarebytes and a decent anti-virus scanner can't do anything. Combofix is VERY aggressive in nuking stuff, and it actually WARNS you beforehand to have the recovery console installed because of that.

That said, I've had combofix clean a computer I'd already slated for reimage multiple times. It's definitely a very powerful tool to use as a last resort.
