I have been listening to this issue for a few weeks now, since it was first discussed on the wowinsider show, and I immediately knew that the fault did not lie in the security of Blizzard. In knowing how these authenticators work (commonly called Secure ID cards in other companies - as many high-tech, and secure conscious company's have been using this technology for years), and the details necessary for a random "keylogger" to get access to a cd key (which was probably hidden in some closet for years) to have the authenticator taken off the account, it was quite clear that this must have been an "inside" job. Any educated person could assume that someone who had access to the "victims" authenticator in their house is probably the culprit, not some "keylogger" or hacker. And way to go Mike Schramm for kindly handling all these people who think you should know everything about everything and grieve you because you don't....
