[Techpowerup.com] Blizzard Servers Hacked, User Data Compromised
Online gaming giant Blizzard Entertainment reported unauthorized access to its servers. The security breach was detected earlier this week, and the company claims that the hackers may have accessed user data such as e-mail addresses of Battle.net users, their personal security questions, and information related to mobile and dial-in authentications.
Blizzard claims that the information compromised is not enough for anyone to gain access to the Battle.net accounts, and that there was no evidence to suggest that more vital bits of user data, such as real names, credit card information, or billing addresses were accessed. Users' Battle.net passwords, which are cryptographically-scrambled, may have been accessed. Since SRP (secure remote protocol) is used to protect the passwords, it is extremely difficult to unscramble them. Blizzard strongly recommends users to change their passwords as investigations into the security breach are on.
