Safely Changing your WoW Password

In the wake of another round of account hacking – Emeritus blogging tank HonorsHammer is one of the latest prominent victims – let me restate one important element of my advice regarding account security.

Change your password often, but don’t do it out of your normal browser. Go visit the LiveCD list, pick one distribution (I recently tried out Damn Small Linux and Ubuntu, both do the trick but the latter is also WiFi-friendly), download it and burn your Live CD. When you change your password, boot on it and use its browser to do your account management. There’s no way a keylogger can sneak into that CD.
