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.

Anyone who bought this game under the premise this wouldn't be hacked:

WE FUCKING TOLD YOU SO

Who said this couldn't be hacked or are you just arguing with yourself and winning?

Hmm is this a new tactic from rabid fanboys, denying what they said in the past?

Its never blizzard's fault. If you start discussing thing with them they end up giving you a warring or treating you that they will close your account its almost just like EA support the only good thing about blizzard's support is there are pretty fast to reply.

I can't really knock them for blaming the user first in random security violations. If they had an internal security breach, it would be something on the level of whole swaths of users having their accounts compromised. When you deal with WoW kiddies all day who give their passwords to RMT Companies for fast leveling or free gold, install everything under the sun if it has the words "hack", "porn", "keygen" or "warez" in it and reply to obvious phishing scams from "@realbattle.net" then I suppose you get a bit jaded at assuming the user is at fault. Also, people lie especially when they knowingly chose a stupid password or security phrase and end up getting ripped off.

Even authenticators aren't fool proof if you get the right/wrong virus installed on your machine. Just a lot less likely.

Basically until Blizzard sees a large spike in security violations, they have no reason to assume anything more than users being at fault. I doubt hackers that have somehow gained access to authentication servers or large amounts of user data wouldn't be going gung-ho on all user accounts.

I sincerely hope always-on single-player games rot in their very own special place in hell.

In other news...

I just reformatted this computer in anticipation for diablo 3.

Wait, what?

There are several seriously delusional fanboys who are insistent that there's no way in hell Blizzard could be at fault. Even though people with strong passwords got hacked (they should've had an authenticator); and even when people who had authenticators got hacked (they're lying about having one). They're pulling out the old "it never happened to me, so it couldn't have happened to you" response. I'm pretty sure I've never felt that much blind loyalty toward anyone, even my awesome husband.


While it's possible that Blizzard could be at fault, the likelihood is; so does that make me delusional or just educated : )

I do find the comments that 'online DRM' should prevent this funny... Did these people never play a massive?

Blizzard has done quite a lot, even if it's not noticeable to most, to combat hacking, but like every other compang that has to deal with it, they know it's ongoing and will never be solved.

I've never had any accounts of mine hacked, mostly due to my usage habits and knowledge, but that doesn't mean it can't/won't happen, but you can bet your butt I won't be whining to whatever service it happens to be for about it : )

That's the mentality for every company. Even Bosses alone think like this--a Boss will NEVER admit that his own company is stupid.

Well, now that the lame excuse of hacking is thrown out of the window we now see why really the DRM is used for: Control over players so Blizzard can make as much cash from the AH.

Anyone who bought this game under the premise this wouldn't be hacked:

WE FUCKING TOLD YOU SO

My god, look at all the Blizzard ass sniffers in those threads. "It's your own fault.", "You should've had the authenticator.", blah blah, even though many of the victims are actually tech savy people who know how to--and have always been able to--avoid viruses, trojans, etc.

You even have--in these threads--your handful of self righteous ass hats that will go as low as to poke fun at the screenshots that someone bothers to post, saying "Sick resolution. You playing that on an iPhone?"--no genius, he's playing it on his computer that he can afford--he's not a lifeless turd like you living out of your mom's basement having no bills to pay and saving up $ for the best computer on the market because you don't spend $ on anything else because your mom covers it you fat ugly gamer lifer nerd whos a virgin to real life and the only power you have is typing on internet forums belittling others that don't spend $2,000 on a computer like you.

Also I tried the TL beta and was not overly impressed...


Yeah, I saw your post. I think I disagreed with a couple of sentences, but I had nothing of much weight to respond with at the time, so I didn't bother. : )

I can play Diablo 2 - SP without any server problems, fear of security breaches and hacks. But hey, "always on" is the future! May be for some people, but not for me

Here's a post from one of the threads

Hello all,

I had my diablo 3 account hacked today. All my items gone and gold liquidated. Blizzard rolled it back to where I was a day and a half before. Meaning I lost around 20 hours of game time play. Not only that, but from what I've read, it seems to be blizzard's fault. My password is a random combination of capitalized and uncapitalized letters, numbers, and special characters. My security question answer is also unknowable by anyone but me.

I was told I'd have to use an authenticator now to use the Real money auction house, and if it happened again, my account would be banned from the RMAH. What is up with that? Blizzard has security flaws and I get punished? So ontop of losing 20 hours of gameplay, I have to use an authenticator to login to my account now, and am teetering on the edge of never using the RMAH? FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!

I just reformatted this computer in anticipation for diablo 3. I have no programs on here but diablo 3, an EVGA overclocker, and internet explorer. I'm also on a secure wired connection, with a legitimate copy of windows 7. I know my stuff, I majored in comp sci in college. Don't treat me like an idiot. This is not my fault.

So now basically Blizzard is treating this guy's account as suspect and will penalize him for their lack of security.

It is to laugh

Blizzard being incompetent?
Who saw THAT coming!!1! I was like "WOAH"!?
