Well Blizzard and Players are being put out by the actual transfers taking place if the Banks/Credit Card companies are also involved... this makes it criminal bank fraud on part of the account hackers.I think it is best that Blizzard put in place new practice and procedures to vailidate users and financial details before such transfers are conducted. I bet with a bit of due diligence on part of Blizzard/Vivendi they may be able to stop this fraudulent trend and stop the blatant account hacks going on atm.

I agree. IMO, adding a few validation questions or requiring more information before proceeding would not complicate the process by that much and on the overall would benefit a LOT of people.

Hmm. I have sympathy for your ordeal, but contempt for your final statement of the piece. If you've got a keylogger, the security of Blizzard's authentication system will never be culpable for problems you experience.

Given the huge success of WoW, I think its about time Blizzard increased its anti-account hacking measures. Whether that means making it harder for hackers to gain access to player accounts, or simply making the "FULL" recovery of a hacked account more painless - they definitely need to do something.I agree that some responsibility for account security is on the player. But honestly, does anyone think that Blizzard should be able to just sit back and do nothing when WoW's very success is the reason why we're all getting targeted by hackers?
