Mike Morhaime the CEO of Activision Blizzard today reported that data from Blizz's internal network have been stolen.
The security team has found an unauthorized and illegal access into the internal network at Blizzard.
At this time, there's no evidence that financial information such as credit cards, billing addresses, or real names were compromised.
Some data have been illegally accessed, including a list of email addresses for global Battle.net users, outside of China. For players on North American servers the answer to the personal question and information relating to Mobile and Dial-in Authenticators were also accessed.
Even though password encryption provides a high level of security, it's vital you change your password anyways.
