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.

Remember the days when a big game was released and the main story was the game itself, not the DRM, broken servers, and cash shop hacking? *SIGH*

Blizzard was better when they were game-makers first, not businessmen.

I don't think that observation is related to Blizzard or Diablo at all... This is just the state of the world now... Even this site is a good example of it... Every story/product about anything people are interested in gets scrutinized like crazy, and that's not likely to ever let up...

The thing people don't seem to understand about security, however, is that while they might (ignorantly) think you can just throw money at a problem and it'll go away, the security landscape is always changing... Some exploits discovered today weren't even conceived when some software was made, so how do you protect against the future?
