Battle.net account locked.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So i just got this email from Blizzard. My account is empty as i only ever used it to play the SC2 Beta way back. Just wondering should i be worried about my email account or anything else? Not concerned my battle.net account is locked as i will probably never use it again anyway.

Greetings,

Due to an unusual change in your access pattern, the Battle.net account -email snip- has been locked. This can be caused by logging in from a new location, but it may also signal an attempt to compromise your account.

If you have registered for Battle.net SMS Protect, you can unlock your account by selecting “Can’t log in,” then selecting “I’m currently locked out of my account,” and following the steps provided. If you have not registered for Battle.net SMS Protect, or if you feel that your account’s security is at risk, please follow the steps below.

Step 1: Secure Your Computer

Ensure that your computer is free from any malicious programs, as a password change alone may not deter future attacks. Visit our Account Security website to learn how to protect your computer from unauthorized access.

Step 2: Secure Your Email Account

Choose a new password for your email account and review your email for any filters or rules you did not create. For more information on securing your email account, visit our Account and Computer Security page.

Step 3: Choose a New Password

Change your password to resume using this Battle.net account, as your former password no longer grants access to any login-protected Battle.net account service or game. Visit our Password Reset page to begin the password change process.

Once you’ve regained access to your account, you can add additional security with Battle.net SMS Protect , a free service that allows you to unlock your Battle.net account on your own with a few simple steps. For more information, see the SMS Protect FAQ

Regards,

Cheers.

Possibly. I changed my password on my email anyway. And didn't click on any links in the email just in case. Never had to deal with a phishing email before.

Edit: Sender is noreplyeu@blizzard.com

This may be a phishing attempt but, Blizzard does actually send out letters like that when someone with a different IP logs into your bnet account.

Its just a scam. They go out to everyone. Hell I just got one on a brand new yahoo account. I have only had it open for 2 weeks. If you use Firefox/waterfox just add W.O.T addon and all the links will pop up with red circles.

Cheers, just grabbed that add-on. Will give a test run for a few weeks smile.gif

Edit: Email was legit and i have indeed been locked out of my battle.net account. Oh well.

Wow thats umm ya. Well I can see if you log in from multi comps. Or someone got your email address and tried to log in from another country. But since your using firefox a few more suggestions. NoScript and adblock plus along with WOT will keep baddies for popping up. Plus a bonus try out our OCN firefox called Waterfox. Its a 64 bit version of it.


Direct link: http://www.waterfoxproject.org/download.php

Always check the e-mail that send you this. You can see if is legit or not.

Also those spam mails look the same so you may never know.
What i always do if i get e-mail.

I dont open or read them, i just check the subject and go to the battlenet website and try to log in to see if i get any message.

Nothing? = spam
Cant login= legit perhaps thumb.gif
