I've been hacked before, and honestly, the best precaution to take is to never type your password into any of the blizzard web sites or the game. Copy and paste it from a secured notepad program. I use LockNote which encrypts and password protects your anything your write in it. And, I just paste my password in whenever I need to log in. So, if I ever get a keylogger again, ctrl-v are the only keystrokes it'll record.LockNote's site:https://www.steganos.com/us/products/home-office/locknote/overview/

Some keyloggers can record everything put in the Clipboard. Don't rely on copy/paste to defeat them. It doesn't hurt, but its not foolproof.

What makes you think that a keylogger won't simply capture the contents of the clipboard everytime it sees a paste keystroke?Please don't rely on the above advice. Rely on not getting malware on your computer. Once you lose control of your computer, it's game over.
Sorry but it is trivial for malicious software to scrape the Windows clipboard. The general rule in computer security is that if they are already inside then they can do whatever they want (even on Linux or Mac).
