    The people that run these bots can find and trace you I.P. and from there they can grab your email and email virus you. Don't under-estimate these hackers

    There is no direct connection between you and other users in a Battle.Net channel.

    So please, those of you insisting that you can get viruses simply by logging on to BNet, stop. You make yourselves look ignorant and gullible.

    L O L

    That happened because you're a porn obsessed 12-year-old and you're trolling through countless sites downloading it.

    LMFAO.

    This is probably the funniest thing I have ever heard you say, Tonks :D

    Anyway, they're all right. It is extremely unlikely that you can get a virus from WC3 and spyware and such just isn't happening. Bots are a nuisance, but not a threat.

    No, the only way to get someone's IP in warcraft is to host a game. Not only that, but there isn't a way to get an email from someone's IP unless you contact the ISP, ask them to lookup all email address accessed from that IP. Which is not even feasible, except for Maybe the government.

    I meant that using battle.net opens the internet (I think), thus causing viruses that were waiting on his connection/computer to gain acess.

    But, I was serious when I say I don't know about these things, I'm just guessing.
