Q: How many security experts does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: Ni hao!

We just had our third hack take place for the month.

After two guys got hacked, stripped, false authenticators attached to their accounts using stolen credit card accounts.

After the GM posted in the MotD “CONSIDER AN AUTHENTICATOR, POPSINGER AND TIGERDUDE GOT HACKED”.

After all the bruhaha.

After Blizz made it part of the login process to see a notice about how aggressive hacks have gotten.

After all this, this guy, this raider guy, who has access to repair funds and guild bank, gets hacked.

Actual quote:

I’m a network security expert. I have a virus scanner. They must have hacked Blizzard.

That’s right. You got hacked, so it must be Blizzard that got haxxored, and after much fighting against the AI ICE programs, many which looked like Marlon Brando from Superman, they escaped Cyberspace with your credentials.

I mean …

Apparently, the above quote translates to:

Only idiots get authenticators. I’m too leet.

People.

Just.

Get.

An.

Authenticator.

Please.

Or I will eat a kitten. I swear to Mammon.
