It's good to know that blizzard is the one place in the world safe from all types of security flaws. My question is this:If blizz is so adept as to have NEVER had a security breech...then why don't they stop making video games and become network security experts? I can think of a few people that's be really interested in that sort of certainty. Meanwhile...back in the real world...I call BS for what it is. To make a statement like that is pretty much akin to saying "politicians NEVER lie" in my mind. So if you believe this...I've got an ocean front condo in Arizona to sell you. Dirt cheap.

Now for a lesson in reading comprehension.The article clearly does not say Blizzard CANNOT be hacked, just that it NEVER has. Many, many, many... in fact MOST companies can say the same thing. You've heard of the ones that have been compromised, they are the top story on the nightly news.If someone did hack Blizzard, they would not bother logging into individual accounts just to shard epics and farm gold. Why? Because they would have access to probably MILLIONS of credit card numbers! That is much more valuable than your epics. No, really. Millions of credit card numbers is VASTLY more valuable than your epics.No, I don't care what you have equipped. The credit card stuff is still more valuable.So the point of the article is, if YOUR account has been compromised, it's YOUR fault for being careless. Someone did not hack Blizzard to get your information. They hacked YOU!
