Blizzard Entertainment have brought us bad news, Battle.net has been hacked. Time to change those passwords.
According to Blizzard, the attack hit all regions outside of China. Unauthorised access has led to hackers potentially obtaining a list of email addresses linked to Battle.net accounts.
In the North American region, scrambled passwords were taken as well as security question answers. Users in the region will be prompted to change their passwords when connect to the servers. Blizzard believe that the information taken isn’t enough to access accounts, but advise players to change passwords as a precaution.
