Blizzard rubbishes the authenticator suit, calls it “frivolous”
Earlier we reported that Blizzard was sued over poor battle.net security where the defendants “negligently, deliberately, and/or recklessly fail to ensure that adequate, reasonable procedures safeguard the private information stored on this website. As a result of these acts, the private information of plaintiffs and class members has been compromised and/or stolen since at least 2007.”
There’s more but Blizzard has denied these complaints and have said that the lawsuit is without merit.
“Considering that players are ultimately responsible for securing their own computers, and that the extra step required by the Authenticator is an added inconvenience during the log in process, we ultimately leave it up to the players to decide whether they want to add an Authenticator to their account. However, we always strongly encourage it, and we try to make it as easy as possible to do,” they said to Ausgamers.
“Blizzard deeply appreciates the outpouring of support it has received from its players related to the frivolous claims in this particular suit.”
Is Blizzard in the wrong here? Let us know in the comments section below.
