    What's worse is if hackers make a trojan version of that warden, and start stealing people's info with modified Blizzard code. The item about some windows displaying Social Security numbers and credit card numbers is worrisome.

    I think its a lot of overhype. He doesn't mention anywhere that the information is returned to blizzard. It is mearly checking for known cheats. And about the Social Security number, would you honestly ever name an excel file with your number? Or your bank account number? Granted, some people might but it seems like a rediculous thing to do. I'd also wait for somone else to verify that this is actually happening.
