@wowyes. If the DNS records were compromised, you'd get far worse problems than fake emails. the DNS records is what makes http://battle.net lead to Blizzard. If those were compromised, you wouldn't get to Blizzard, you'd get to wherever the hacker wanted you to go. It would basically be equivalent to hacking the whole web.Now, what sean.aikins showed wasn't the DNS, it was spf. That's a related system where companies (or other sites) can register to increase their email authentication security. As long as those records show a "passed" instead of "failed" or "neither pass nor fail", it should be ok. But only as long as Blizzard uses that layer of security.
