So like anyone who plays WoW I can name a bunch of people I know who have gotten hacked. They may have got hacked in a variety of ways. Go to websites they shouldn't have, guild website was logged, bugged addon, keyloggers, bought gold, or even responded to an email they shouldn't have. Now I don't think I have ever heard of someone who has been hacked because they believed one of those whispers everyone is sent in game. Why? Well I think you all know the English is absolutely horrible and even someone who only speaks broken English can obviously tell it is fake. Think for a second, if the language made sense would you think twice about it? Now I would tend to argue many would. Regardless, you might pick up on the name and clue in to the fact that why wouldn't Blizzard just cut off your account. The point being some people are idiots, but even idiots can tell when someone cannot speak English.
So what is this all about? Well I fear for the day that these account hackers learn how to at least type sentences that make a moderate amount of sense. Also this brings me to the point that, they should know this. They should know that you could basically fool 50% of the WoW population by typing in a form of English that at least that 50% would see as correct enough. They would of course get the result they were in fact looking for.
Guess I just gave a pro tip to the hackers. Long weekend starts tomorrow!
