Following days of numerous reports from users claiming their Diablo III accounts have been compromised, Blizzard reassures both and the game are safe.

"Historically, the release of a new game -- such as a World of Warcraft expansion -- will result in an increase in reports of individual account compromises, and that's exactly what we're seeing now with Diablo III," Blizzard said in a statement posted online.

"We know how frustrating it can be to become the victim of account theft, and as always, we're dedicated to doing everything we can to help our players keep their accounts safe -- and we appreciate everyone who's doing their part to help protect their accounts as well."

Blizzard offered several suggestions to users who may be concerned, which you can read in full right here.
