Jan 8th 2010 4:26PM I have been hacked in the past, and my character was transferred to another account. I contacted the billing department and asked them to restore everything back to the way it was before this happened. They told me they only have the ability to "roll back" character transfers and ultimately only GMs can restore items.
The only question I have is how come everybody in the world has to contact Game masters when they are hacked yet the Billing department can roll back a character perfectly yet they only use it for scammers?
This makes no sense, I have never heard of blizz "rolling back" a hacked character as people who have been hacked can tell you, everything is mailed to you, sometimes with enchants/gems missing, or even whole items missing. If they have this abilty to do it perfectly why do they only use it in cases where they can't even verify the person was really hacked?
Jan 8th 2010 3:12PM So you are saying that Blizzard who run an online game, lack the ability to check the IPs that connected to your account?

Honestly this article needs to be edited, frankly it has a Sensationalist and frankly misleading title, and as you can see from the comments people are not fully understanding the situation, and freaking out.
I don't know what Blizzard has done recently to earn the ire of wow.com but all this article does is confuse people and help increase blizzards work load with petitions about "wow.com says you won't give me my items back"
This is an option, for people that don't want to wait, Blizzard will give you your stuff back if you want it back. In the end account security is your own responsibility and blizzard does you a service by giving you your things back.

Greatest Game on Earth.
Sep 4th 2009 11:25AM I think's its safe to assume that if somebody goes through all the trouble of removing the keylogger they will also change their password.
Sep 4th 2009 11:07AM Having seen this on a friends computer myself the program that finds the file will give you a warning first something along the lines of "We have detected a keylogging program on your computer, please remove it before attempting to play" its only if you close the warning and try to launch the game that it will suspend your account.
To be honest it's a good idea, 24 hours to clean your computer is much better than a 2-3 days to get your account back and then 3-4 days to get your items back.
Jul 26th 2009 10:21PM And how could you not do this before the change, now you just have the item to trade and sell in game, before you had to give them the code.
This does not change anything in game for normal players, it just stamps out one of the largest scams, which robed players of gold, accounts, and Game Masters of time.
