We're going to reset your license key and will send a new one to your reg. email address. Please use it to re-activate ESET on machines.

The license key was generated on April 9, 2020. Maybe the user has access to your emails since it leaked among other data in the following breaches. I'd recommend changing the password to your email account as soon as possible:

You were signed up to certain services, including the WoW server with your email address. If you used the same credentials to your email account after the breaches, attackers could log in to your email provider and access your emails.

Having the password generated can help but the best practice is to make sure each account uses a different password or at least those that are key accounts are unique. As mentioned the problem with data breaches is people tend to reuse passwords so when one account is breached the hacker then gets access to multiple via the same password. If they get access to your email they can also send password resets to sites that might use a different password.

Also I'd recommend using two step authentication wherever possible

As was mine. @Marcos, should I send you the Key that was "leaked" and invalidated/denied?
