Battle.net, the huge game servers that house all the player information for Blizzard Entertainment's three major games (World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo) has officially been hacked, the company has just confirmed. According to an update posted on Blizzard's official website from President Mike Morhaime, financial information, including real names, billing addresses and credit card numbers seem to be safe, though a list of email addresses, personal security questions and "information relating to Mobile and Dial-In Authenticators" has been accessed. In addition to that, a list of cryptographically scrambled Battle.net passwords were also accessed. Read all about it on A Server Blog

I love that phrase "seem to be safe". That's about as solid as their belief they could not be hacked in the first place.

Seem to be safe.. yeah that's probably why Blizz made me change my password, security questions, and authenticator ID.  Does not seem reassuring.
