It allegedly happened to the guild mate of a WI.com author. I believe the original link to the guild forum thread talking about it was in the original article.

Yes, it did happen. An account was hacked while the player had a working authenticator tagged on their account. The sad thing about all this was that this person recieved many horrible in game tells and mail pretty much calling then a liar. If everyone would like to go on living in la-la land thinking this little device is 100% full proof than go ahead. But for those who chose to live in reality please continue to be cautious with account info.
