I remember all the account compromise problems that came about in WotLK the following months after its launch. The forums were full of people who had downloaded an addon that seemed legitimate or a well known one from curse or elsewhere that had been compromised as well. Followed by the moronic tide of miscreants posting "Your fault n00b" and "You deserved it retard for sex leg!" all over those topics. Yet, most of those vocal idiots never once tries to offer the sort of information that is presented in this video. Knowing the pain of a compromised account, I'd often try to reassure people I hear that are compromised, especially guildmates and such. Of the WoW forums, that area of discussion has been cleaned up considerably with draconian measures that are necessary to keep the crap out of serious threads. The solution to this problem is not to insult the people who suffer from it, it was education of the problem and informing people how it might have happened, how to clean up their system, and how to prevent it in the future. Good show, Blizzard.
