In short, its your fault if our security is broken, thanks for the money.

Not to mention, they totally dodged the issue. So, what happened with this? A lot of accounts got hacked, why? Your security at fault or the users security at fault? What steps are being taken to prevent further problems? Are their steps being taken? Is it being looked into? Or are you just going to point at the Authenticator and hope the problem goes away?

Here's someone that's never had to deal with account security before.

General tip for you, it's almost ALWAYS the user's fault when it comes to security breaches, whether it's games or network security within companies. Users choose poorly constructed passwords, re-use passwords over and over, release their information constantly to phishing scams and other unseemly sources, get viruses on their home machines that consistently need to be weeded out as they transfer files in.

You can protect against direct breaches of your own system. You can't protect against stupid users that don't maintain their own security. That goes for Blizzard just the same as it goes for any other company out there.

Short of Blizzard taking control of your computer and filtering or blocking out any questionable websites for you, what exactly would you like them to do?
