"Sorry, but is this a suprise to anybody? Yes, if some hacker gets access to a piece of ID, you social security number, your adress, photo, CD key, and mother's maiden name, he can access your WoW account.Also, on a possibly more relevant note, he can also access your bank account, your house, and your identity. "What he/she said.If someone knows your the cd number and your secret answer and has your authent key....you got more problems then just getting all your nifty gear stolen. I dunno, like maybe your r/l bank account.

Not in any country with secure banking systems that require the person to show up in the bank with a valid passport to make any changes that would influence the account in any real way.All other ways to access the bank require a have/know combination (card+PIN, code calculator+PIN, ...).In any real country personal information (address, mother's maiden name, ...) never plays any significant role in identifying a person. Only verifiable documents do.

I live in the the US, which many feel to be a "real country". In fact, I know of no "unreal countries", except for places like Azeroth and Narnia. Unless I am mistaken, neither employs a CD ID Key to access their computer games. YMMV.My point was that if they can get such personal info as the cd key, off the cd itself, which is assumably in their house, then maybe they gotten access to a lot more than just computer game.
