Blizzard Servers Hacked, Personal Info Grabbed
Filed under: BLIZZARD, BATTLE.NET
Blizzard Entertainment has issued a statement, pointing towards unauthorized and illegal access into the company's network.

Here's a snip from Blizzard's security update:

At this time, we've found no evidence that financial information such as credit cards, billing addresses, or real names were compromised. Our investigation is ongoing, but so far nothing suggests that these pieces of information have been accessed.

Some data was illegally accessed, including a list of email addresses for global Battle.net users, outside of China. For players on North American servers (which generally includes players from North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia) the answer to the personal security question, and information relating to Mobile and Dial-In Authenticators were also accessed. Based on what we currently know, this information alone is NOT enough for anyone to gain access to Battle.net accounts.

Shit! I don't think my credit card info is stored on BNet, but I'm going to check right now.

EDIT: My credit card isn't on my BNet account. Thank goodness!
