WarGaming's security got compromised to an unknown extent few days ago. Now they, WarGaming, inform and advise us to change our account(s) password(s). Source.
As a part of usual security practices, we recently became aware that some personal information may have been compromised due to a security incident. We immediately launched an investigation into the incident and can assure you that no financial information was accessed. However, we believe that some password hashes and email addresses were affected by the compromise.
The security of your account is very important to us at Wargaming. As a precaution, we are launching a global campaign to increase the security of your account. Please reset your Wargaming ID account password using the account management page straight away.
Note: If you have been using your old Wargaming ID password on other sites, we strongly recommend that you change those passwords too. We appreciate your immediate attention in resetting your password and apologise for the inconvenience.
You will also get 300 gold for changing your password.
There is something I noticed right away:
Since I have already linked my phone number to my account, why this extra security feature isn't working?
It supposed to prevent this exact thing, someone cannot change my account password unless it gets validated by a SMS code I receive.
WHERE IS IT!?
I should've gotten an validation SMS code when I changed my password but I didn't, why?
I submitted a ticket to support and I will keep you informed with a reply.
Freaking WarGaming morons ....
