One huge security hole that could be very easily fixed is that we use the same login credentials for the WoW forums as we do to log in to the game. I would bet that many accounts are compromised by keyloggers when people log on to the forums, not the game. Its easy enough to click the "Remember User Name" button on the game login screen. Then, your user name can't be compromised, unless you log in to the WoW forums. I am not suggesting using that as the only line of defense, that would be unwise of course. However, if we had a different user/pass for the forums, one hole would be plugged.
