Blizzard Security Breach

Blizzard says its security team has discovered unauthorized and illegal access to its network and the company is asking everyone on its North American servers to change their passwords. Hit the link for more information on the extent of the breach. Thanks to everyone that sent this one in.

Even when you are in the business of fun, not every week ends up being fun. This week, our security team found an unauthorized and illegal access into our internal network here at Blizzard. We quickly took steps to close off this access and began working with law enforcement and security experts to investigate what happened. At this time, we’ve found no evidence that financial information such as credit cards, billing addresses, or real names were compromised. Our investigation is ongoing, but so far nothing suggests that these pieces of information have been accessed.
