This is odd:

Blizzard apparently hides account and IP data in screeshots that people take, presumably to hunt down private WoW servers.  It doesn't contain passwords, but it does contain account ID and account name, which could be used for other nefarious purposes.

That's interesting--thanks for sharing it Kisk.  I have to read it more thoroughly sometime though, pretty detailed.

Thanks again,
