Battle.net®/Diablo III Security Concerns

Over the past couple of days, players have expressed concerns over the possibility of Battle.net® account compromises. First and foremost, we want to make it clear that the Battle.net and Diablo III servers have not been compromised. In addition, the number of Diablo III players who’ve contacted customer service to report a potential compromise of their personal account has been extremely small. In all of the individual Diablo III-related compromise cases we’ve investigated, none have occurred after a physical Battle.net Authenticator or Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app was attached to the player’s account, and we have yet to find any situation where a Diablo III player's account was accessed outside of “traditional” compromise methods (i.e. someone logging using an account's login email and password).

Good info for the D3 Players out there....

However if there is something that's a compromise to the game, I don't think they' openly admit to it without having a plan in place.

ADD: For those that don't have an authenticator you might want to check out http://code.google.com/p/winbma/
But be aware of the security implications of having your authenticator on your PC.

Agreed, everyone I've seen/talked to says they did not have an authenticator.

I actually ran into someone in game yesterday that said his account got hacked. I told him he got keylogged, he said that's not what happened, and proceeded to tell me that there are "millions of ways to get peoples passwords" rolleyes.gif

There's not millions of ways but if you have an authenticator you can still get your account hacked.

Yeah only if its on Blizzards side, which nothing user end could protect against. If its happening with a standard someone gets your password the authenticator will do its job, and as long as its not being logged into from the same IP as my home IP, it's going to save me. But your right, its not 100%.

Yes, because the few dollars from the authenticator outweighs the time devoted to restoring people's accounts right?

and FYI, it's a free app on smart phones.

If people choose to not go through the "hassle" and get their accounts keylogged, they're the only ones to blame for.
