It's a huge and growing problem. 4 people in my guild alone have had their accounts hacked in the last few weeks, one of which was our MT which has hindered our progress.I dread to think how much time this is absorbing for Blizzard's support, if every incident requires investigation and communication with the player in question.I hope Blizzard at least consider adding some existing account security on logins, e.g.:* Internet banking style dropdown menus where you pick letters from a security word (this stops people getting your login details using key loggers)* Ability for players to view logins to their account (including failed ones) in the account management area on the WoW site, so you can see if someone is trying to guess your passwordFor me personally, I'm only ever logging into WoW from home, where I always have the same IP address. It would certainly give me piece of mind if a login to my account was detected from a different IP, it would ask me an additional security question (mother's maiden name or something like that).Blizzard definitely need to do something.
