I think people forget to think about angry (neglected for WoW) spouses and jerk friends or relatives who hack people's accounts. Obviously if someone had access to the key fab it would be a meaningless line of defense.Of course, we never get those details from the OMG I WAZ HAX stories, but I bet it is fairly common.

Exactly; it looks like someone got a hold of the authenticator and used it to "hack" the account [if it even happened in the first place].Now, it's possible that Blizzard messed something up, like logging in with an old version of the client, or somesuch, bypassed the need for the Authenticator code, and I would hope they are looking closely into this. Barring that, though, I think it's very naive of people to think the Authenticator was cracked.
