Keep in mind the massive flaw just exposed in DNS hijacking stuff lately:http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2008/04/isps-error-page.htmlA link might LOOK like it's going to an official Blizzard page, but if you're on one of the ISPs that are messing with DNS to insert ads (Earthlink, Verizon, Time Warner, Comcast and Qwest for sure), it could still be a scam. Extra caution for the next while, folks...

This is how SSL protects you, even if there is some sort of redirection you can still view the security certificate of the website and be sure that you are communicating with people you trust.In summary, to make sure that you are sending your password to Blizzard's servers, at https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/ check the SSL certificate details. It should be signed by "Thawte Premium Server CA".For more information on how Digital Certificate's work, you can read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Certificate
