Blizzard Servers Breached

Grab your authenticators and rev up the conspiracy machine. With all the server breaches that have happened over the past year or so, it seemed inevitable that Blizzard would eventually be the victim of such an attack. A security notice on Battle.net has been posting warning users that a security breach has resulted in delicate information being released.

According to the notice, encrypted passwords, security questions, email addresses, and mobile authenticator information was stolen in the breach. Mike Mohaime points out that the information leaked is not enough to recover an account, however users over the next few days will be forced to change their secret questions and mobile authenticator users will be required to update to a new version of the software.

All in all the breach was bad, but as several sites are pointing out, it could have been much worse.
