i'm still calling shenanigans. has anyone ever heard directly from the person who claimed to have been hacked? even this belfaire person says that as far as their investigation has shown so far, neither blizzard nor the authenticator are at fault.thanks for spreading FUD, wowinsider..

Here's a thread where they comment on it to their guild (link found the first article about it here). They removed their original post, but there are comments from them further in the thread. Interesting that they say (of their authenticator) "It was active when I logged in last night, but doesn't appear to be tied to my account anymore." Belfaire says, "I can say with 100% certainty that the Authenticator was never removed from the account in question."Peculiar. Did they make that part up, about the authenticator having been removed from their account? Were they just confused?In any case, they most likely thing is they got hacked by someone with access to their authenticator. If they're the only one with access to the authenticator, as they seem to suggest, then I would hate to suggest they hacked themself, but I've heard stranger things.
