Ysana, I can appreciate your concern — but you need to calm down.

Many of the ones involved in this are in fact NOT compromised accounts. We can deal with the ones that are.

Security should be a top priority for every individual — every day. It certainly never hurts to remind others of this, but I don't think this is in quite the epidemic proportions you think it is.

Mass hacks are happening as I write this on THaurissan, many guildies and non–guildies. Bots are vendoring all their gear. Many people are saying it is related to an adobe flash upgrade. DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS?

What version of Adobe flash would it be? Is it recent? How do we check?

The first thing anyone in that position should do is make sure both their system — and their email account are secure….then change their password.

If they do find that they've been compromised, they then need to report it to us — AFTER they've found the breach.

The issue here, is not that we were hacked. That can be fixed. The issue is that what seemed like well over 50 people on Alliance side alone were hacked, from all different guilds all in the space of about 3 hours. I personally sat watching character after character run from the Bank in SW, straight to the vendor, taking off all their gear in the meantime, and then, make their way to a mailbox.

I can't account for all the hacks, especially those that affected horde characters, but what I did see, was not some small discreet job.

The issue is that SO MANY people were hacked at once, clearly, there is some kind of breach.

You do realize that if you saw 50 characters, that might only be 5 accounts, right? Possibly all on the same B.net account?
