Im a Diablo 3 player . Around 3 days ago I got this error msg while attempting to log in (error 3 your login information was incorrect) . It popped up after entering my password and authenticator code ( I am using an authenticator emulator - Winauth ) . Tried the solutions provided in the Blizzard support article for this error 3 but none worked . However I can log in to my account through the Battlenet website . I can also log into the game if I remove my authenticator . Later I read on forums someone with problems similar to mine and they got hack with some kind of man in the middle attack . I log in to the game to check mine ( by removing the authenticator again ) and confirm my items etc were missing .
Since then I have ran alot of different scanners , some scanners say my PC is clean and some others detected some stuff and removed/fixed it . However I am still encountering this error 3 msg . I tried reinstalling the game as well but no luck . Blizzard support also a dead end as they havent responded to my ticket in 3 days now . I would like to fix this as I also use my PC for other stuff like paypal , email etc and dont want it to be hacked . So am I infected with something or is this something else entirely ?Update :
Just ran a windows system file checker , and it seems to have solve the error 3 problem . Is it safe to assume my pc is clear?
