The issues came from Internet Explorer having that vulnerability that allowed attackers to compromise a machine.http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms08-078.mspxWhile 'game passwords' were also targeted, the issue was much bigger than just getting access to your WOW account.. people were able to access your entire machine and all the data on it.The issue was fixed, make sure to patch your Internet Explorer (or use Firefox). Since IE is widely used, a lot of WOW players were affected by it, ergo Blizzard started recommending their way of dealing with the issue..This is not related to Blizzard being hacked, this is related to users navigating to compromised websites and getting exploited. End of Story.
