Submission + - Battle.NET passwords are not case-sensitive. 1

Knifa writes: Account passwords for Blizzard's Battle.NET service are not case-sensitive as one would expect.

A blue poster on the World of Warcraft forums confirmed this about a year ago but seemingly nothing has been done about the security risk. Blue post @ http://tinyurl.com/3y9qq8y

  • If you really think having the password "mYd0g'sNaMe15BriAn!" is any more secure than "mydogsnameisbrian", I assume you haven't ever actually looked in to anything security-related beyond "Some other website told me I needed to have a stupid password"
