i want to understand how someone can change my password on my account ...& what can i do against that cheater/robber.
I m very angry of that... all that for stolen items ? thats just a game...so why?
When did this happen? I know blizzard just recently closed a lot of accounts mostly for using a new maphack. And I also know that usually, this process of "closing" accounts just involves them changing the password to it, so that may be the case with yours.
There's a few common ways for people to guess the password of an account:
third party programs
Third party programs are known to come with keyloggers and other malicious software. These software are able to give your passwords to most anything out to most anyone. It's generally better to avoid using these programs, as they aren't needed to play the game anyway. The only somewhat justifiable reason to use them is if the game is really hard for you, and if that's the case, a different game might be more your style (this is not directed at abusius, but rather people who use third party programs).
These are mostly along the lines of "type /dnd account password" or something. Never give out your password on battle.net. No-one will ever legally ask for it (including Blizzard employees).
Easy to guess passwords
Always make sure your passwords are difficult to guess, and are in no way related to your account name. Having an account name "Sephiroth", and a password "FinalFantasy" is a sure way to lose your account.
Unless you have some sufficient backing information, don't bother posting such accusations. Just ask yourself, if you were a huge gaming corporation, would you change thousands of accounts and "steal" their cd keys?
