A while back, I excoriated people who had had their Diablo III accounts hacked and looted. I couldn't find a single such incident that could be attributed to a lapse of Blizzard security. Specifically, it seemed that the Authenticator device/system hadn't allowed any accounts to be breached.
A couple of days ago, Blizzard released this security warning. I like how they sugarcoat the hacking with doubletalk, but it doesn't seem too serious. They DO need to disclose what "information relating to Mobile and Dial-In Authenticators were also accessed" actually means. With real money auction houses involved, they need to maintain fascist control of this system.
I suggest everyone change their Blizzard logins and passwords, and you should be keeping at least a cursory eye on your credit card activity in any case.

My entry to the "My Best Friends" art contest took first place! The hosts of the contest at
Ponies-For-Everypony, an MLP fan group on DeviantArt, gave me the news on Sunday. Thank you guys for your support.
