Anyone with a Battlenet or Blizzard user account may have recently received an empty email from the California developer studio. However, this was not a malicious attack. We'll tell you what it's all about instead.
WoW fans have apparently received more and more empty emails without content and subject line from Blizzard recently. Those who fear a phishing or malware attack can breathe a sigh of relief. As Blizzard explained on the developer studio's official Twitter account, the blank messages are an oversight on the part of Blizzards itself.
Customer support apologized on Twitter for the confusion and instructed users to ignore or delete the blank email. If you have received such a message, you do not need to do anything other than move it to the trash. There was no hack on your account, so you don't need to take any security measures.
How exactly the error occurred remains unclear. Maybe N'Zoth was involved in the void? Vanion at least reports that not only users within Germany, but all over Europe and the USA have received the ominous, empty emails.
By the way: Just because these messages are harmless, you should continue to beware of phishing emails. Right now that Alpha of the upcoming Shadowlands WoW expansion is in full swing, fraudsters use the favor of the hour to get fake invitation emails to your account details.
We would therefore like to point out again at this point:
Blizzard does not send invitations to WoW's Alpha (buy now for 33.95 €) Shadowlands!
As soon as you receive access, you will find the corresponding entry directly in your Battlenet client.
