  • Account Stealing Scam

    The World of Warcraft official site has been updated with a warning to players. It seems that there is currently an account stealing scam going on and they want you to be aware of how to protect yourself and your account.

    We'd like to make the community aware of a recent account-theft scam that is being circulated through email, game forums, in-game chat, and other mediums. This scam involves fake URLs, or hyperlinks, that once clicked will install harmful "keylogging" software intended to steal your World of Warcraft account name and password. After the creators of these keyloggers steal this information, they log into your account, immediately change your password to lock you out, and then sell all of your items and transfer all of your gold.
