In a recent announcement, Mike Morhaime of Blizzard said that Blizzard's internal network had been breached. At this time they don't believe that "any credit cards, billing addresses, or real names were compromised." E-mails were taken, however, as well as the encrypted passwords, security questions and answers, and the Mobile and Dial-in Authenticator information.. The passwords are encrypted through the Secure Remote Password protocol, so the hackers would have to individually crack each and every password in order to obtain one. It's still recommended to change your Battle.net password, though. Read the announcement here, and a list of FAQs relating to the security breach here
