Completely agree with takeshi.
From my perspective, someone now knows your personal information. With name and address, your credit report can be pulled by lenders. It most probably will go to verification requests like SSN and etc., but you might see unauthorized hard pulls, even if someone used wrong SSN to fill in applications. At least keep monitoring your credit report is something you can do right now. Credit Karma takes care of TransUnion, and for some users Equifax. If you are very concerned, you might even think of placing security freezes on credit reports, but if it's me I would only do this when the hard pulls/new accounts already show up (in which case usually place fraud alerts as well), or on a long time travel.
Again as takeshi has pointed out, changing your password is crucial, as someone else has access now. You don't want to have the login credentials changed to something you don't know. Very good you found it out in time. Ensure you remember security questions on that account. See if you used the same password on any other online accounts including email, retailers and others. Reporting to Blizzard would also be helpful to the investigation of any potential identity theft criminals.
