This type of security device can't exactly be keylogged. Sure your username and password can be, but as long as you have it and activated within your account, it would be extremely hard to break. Basically every 60 seconds the key dongle will generate a random number. The server will generate the same random number at the same time. So say they keylog your security code, in 60 seconds time, it will no longer be valid. Basically, unless they can come up with a way to brute force out all the possibilities of a 6 digit number in 60 seconds, then they are screwed. And even that can be limited by Blizzard. They can put a login attempt limit on the account. So if more then 5 attempts happen within any 60 second period it freezes the account for an hour.
