Blizzard Issues Account Security Warning For WoW

Blizzard Entertainment, creators of the wildly popular Massively Multi-player Online (MMO) game World Of Warcraft, has issued an account security warning for account holds who were not using an authenticator and whose accounts showed potential unauthorized access.

The company said that there has been recent increase in unauthorized access to WoW account logins from both their website and also their WoW Mobile Armory app.

The warning stated;

We're in the process of notifying any account holders who were not using an authenticator and whose account showed signs of unauthorized access (e.g., logging in from an unusual IP address). If you are among this group, you will receive an email describing how to reset your account.

As a result of these activities, access to the World of Warcraft auction house via the mobile app has been taken off-line temporarily. Upon request, our customer support team will restore in-game items and gold for any accounts impacted.

They are also encouraging users to read through the security tips on the support website and follow the instructions to help keep the player accounts a secure as possible.
