I havent been personally and I use authenticator nowdays but heres story of my old guild:We HAD to register to guild website, for forums and stuff like that. No problems there I thought, "good to keep contact to".That was about 3 years ago at start of wrath before battle net merges etc.But sadly and bit rudely I have to say, our guild master was little blue-eyed, "bad with computers" and just foolish as was most of the guildies. Nice people, not that bright..So why I'm telling this? Well it happens that our guild master was not so clever or responsible, so he one day got his account hacked after clicking links on their email..It didnt take long until the keyloggers found out that he was guild leader and had website to run with EVERYONES email..So that means that everyone in the guild started getting phishing emails because naturally they all used same email as wow account.. (before battle net merge so they werent that careful). I was wondering how the heck my other email started getting phishing emails from wow, I mean how in the world would they know THAT address because I used another? Well some digging found out that oh yeah, I used that to register to old guilds website..So in the end 6 out of 14 guildies got hacked. Yep.. like I said, nice people but not that bright. It goes without saying but if you havent already, go change your email address off from any wow related site to something else than battle net one!I'm still utterly bitter how irresponsible the guy is, he is guild leader after all!I'm STILL getting spam email from him and hes computer must be filled with keyloggers (example everytime you talked to the guy thro msn you would get advertise to shady sites) after repeatedly saying to clean up the computer but "its fine I dont feel anything besides who cares its not like I have anything to hide on my websites". Seriously..?
