I got one of these emails. However, looking at the mail - it looks legit. None of the URLs are actually redirects. The raw text in the email is really pointing to legitimate URLs.That being said, the email says that my PW was reset, but it wasn't. It still worked just fine.I was in the Gawker list of email addresses, so I've been resetting PWs at throwaway sites (I used the same user/email/PW set at Joystiq as I did at Gawker, but important things like banking all have distinct PWs). My bnet account should be fine.If this is phishing, there's no hook here, at least in the email I received.

I experienced the same thing. The e-mail I got was entirely legitimate, links and all, but my password was not reset. I logged into Bnet and wasn't prompted to change it either.
