Nearly everyday I get a phishing email asking for my login password

Some of them look really damn real too.

I delete them as they come in. I just check the details of the email and "mailed-by" is almost always hotmail.com. But it's annoying getting these several times a day.

I got hacked after installing a mod pack, could be just a coincidence but I got rid of the addons just in case. Got myself an authenticator and I am still a bit paranoid but I have a strong password and the authenticator so I should be fine.

I've been "hacked" before when my account was inactive... I logged in to resub and it asked me for an authenticator code, which I don't have. So I emailed Blizzard (called them first, but getting someone to pick up is damn near impossible) and had them remove it.

This has also happened to many people I know, and like me they're not internet buffoons. No keyloggers, malicious sites or anything. Just happens.

Lesson learned though, get an authenticator. The digital ones are free, actually.

Yeah that was the past 3 weeks. Somehow I feel my information was leaked/Blizzard themselves got hacked.
