Well, this has been an interesting morning.
I login to get my early daily runs in around 5 AM, and I find Quint plummeting to his demise in the middle of Icecrown.
That's strange; I parked him in Undercity yesterday after (finally) completing Uldaman.
Hey, why's his gear score so low?
And where's my off spec stuff?
And where's my gold?
Yes, sometime overnight I was hacked. Years of paying my bills online, and I've never had a problem. On WoW for less than a year? Hacked. What that says about the popularity of WoW and gold miners is left as an exercise for the student.
I put in a call to Blizz to get my stuff recovered, but in the meantime I've been poking around to find the weak point in my laptop, not the desktop that I play on. Why the laptop? Two reasons: I do all of my WoW related surfing on it (not the desktop), and I've a hunch that the default work settings for such things as Cookies are terrible.
(Update: Yes, they were. [expletive deleted] employer settings. Since corrected.)
Oh, well. Hopefully they didn't hit the guild bank using my account; that would suck.
