WoW: Account Hacked - Battle.net Merger
I haven't logged in for a year and a few months, so I was surprised to get this in my mail today. Sure enough, can't change my password back, looks like I've been hax0red Jim. It's odd, I run a very tight ship on all my systems, full scanning, no funky sites, no mods, it's as clean as it gets.
I emailed [email protected], so hopefully they can get this back for me. Not much you can do in the meantime eh?
A quick Google shows this "Merger" causing all kinds of funky hacking attacks, so at least I'm not alone.
PS. My name is not William. But what a lovely, generic and safe name to use for a hack attempt!
