Blizzard fixes Diablo III gold duplication bug, but the damage may be done

Yesterday's release of the 1.0.8 patch for Diablo III fixed many known bugs, but it also added an exploit that let savvy users create in-game gold out of thin air, wreaking havoc on the in-game economy and real-money auction house.

By cancelling a transaction while it was still being processed, players on the 1.0.8 patch would get twice as much gold returned to them, creating an easy source of infinite in-game currency. Blizzard made players aware of the duplication bug last night and shut down the auction houses to limit the damage. A fix was pushed live to servers at 10:40pm PDT, according to an update to the official forum post addressing the issue. (Diablo III, PC)

The only game I bought by blizzard was Starcraft II Wings of liberty and its the last game I will buy by them until they stop banning accounts so fast and easily.
