We always hear about it but never think it will touch our little world. Well, it does.What am I talking about?
It is the single worst thing that can happen to a WoW player 's account because you lose everything that you have invested in your hobby. On top of the time, gold, gear and other materials that is stolen; you lose the feeling of control, trust and good will.
No, I haven't been hacked but some people in my guild have and the ones that hit home were my 2 WoW friends, one I knew irl.
The worst part of it all is that the 2 WoW friends that got hacked, they really had no reason to have gotten hacked. They don't buy gold or surf the internet much. The only thing they didn't have were authenticators.
As targets, they were paydirt in the amount of damage the hacking caused them.
