Meh. I doubt it is as serious as it sounds, if it even exists. If it's possible, it's probably only in corner cases and difficult to execute. I find it more likely that B.net accounts are just starting to be targeted now through other means, such as malware. Blizzard has a lot of experience dealing with security, and they wouldn't fall to something as simple as this.

I pick up every single blue and yellow item that drops and sell them at the merchants for gold. I don't bother salvaging stuff anymore because crafting materials can be had for pretty cheap via the auction house. I also sell stuff at the AH for 10k or 20k a pop which gets your gold up there pretty quickly.

It will just wipe any progress you have made on a current quest. You can go back and to whatever quests you want as much as you want, and then just go back and restart the quest you left off on before.

Thanks for the heads up about the hacking thing but I also got the impression it isn't as bad as it sounds. There are a bunch of posts at the DIII forums though. Wondering if the servers are going to go down sometime tonight for maintenance.

They also have a lot of experience with supporting 11 million subscribers for WoW and keeping servers up tongue.gifrolleyes.gif

Not all at once, on launch day... that happens only for a short period of time. Their fault this time was mostly communication and user unfriendly error messages. I read some blue posts in advance and I knew what to expect and what I should do to get in, even if it takes a little while. Other users probably just thought the service was broken and gave up immediately.

I read a little about this, and it seems it's malware at fault. People are being infected (probably by falling for some scam) with malware that grabs your authentication token, which can be used to log-in while it's active (this is the token that is passed around from you to servers and between servers so each server knows what data you have permissions to see, without checking the database every single access - this is common practice, even Windows uses this method).

You can apparently check if you're infected by searching for emcor.dll.

Read more at http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5270828717

It doesn't make sense to make this available to all players in the game, because the game is hosted on a Blizzard server. I'm not even saying it doesn't make sense from a security standpoint, but there's just no reason to do so. Also, I looked into D3 protocol buffers and was unable to find anything regarding sessions or session IDs anywhere. The person who spread this notion was probably told about the authentication token and didn't quite understand what he was told, and then continued to tell others his version of the story.

This was done in the past in WoW, when Google ads linking to malicious sites were put up, that prompted you to get software like the WowMatrix Addon Manager, which installs this malware.

Like I said before, it's far more likely that this is happening en mass now because the malware is finally ready for release and has been put up in ads or seemingly innocent software, and it just wasn't around a few days ago.

That's not to say Blizzard shouldn't investigate or prevent it, and they will. Warden has been known to stop you from logging in when it detects a keylogger or known WoW malware running on your system.

Someone was complaining about it happening earlier in the thread. I don't think that many people know how to do it yet, hopefully blizz will patch it before it becomes too widespread.
