Black hat (for personal gain) hackers are everywhere, a disease that never stops spreading, will eventually reach you. As Sony and others, have been constantly hacked at,  has only proved how insecure your information is on the web, even with big companies. So if you’re a World of Warcraft or Starcraft gamer, don’t hesitate to change your password, as Blizzard has stated that some account information has been illegally accessed and stolen. This does not include personal information, such as credit card numbers and address locations. If I were you I would immediately change my login information.
