The popular website that handles the online for games like Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft has apparently been breached. Although according to Blizzard, there’s no evidence that suggest the loss of financial data, Blizzard is urging those of you that play WOW and the other games to update password information. This applies to accounts in North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Below you can read more detailed information on how this happened courtesy of a post made by Blizzard.
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.
We also know that cryptographically scrambled versions of Battle.net passwords (not actual passwords) for players on North American servers were taken. We use Secure Remote Password protocol (SRP) to protect these passwords, which is designed to make it extremely difficult to extract the actual password, and also means that each password would have to be deciphered individually. As a precaution, however, we recommend that players on North American servers change their password. Please click this link to change your password. Moreover, if you have used the same or similar passwords for other purposes, you may want to consider changing those passwords as well.
