I would have to file this under the "freak accident" category. Cant picture a gold farmer going through all these loop holes just to get someones account. All the fault lies with the user. He probably had some less than scrupulous people around who could've wrote down the serial numbers, knows his personal information, etc. I am a little saddened that wowinsider is trashing the authenticator so much when this is clearly user error.There aint' no technology that can fix stupid, stupid.Doubtful that many authenticator owners will get hacked unless you stand on the busiest street in town with a sign around your neck giving people all your personal info including serial number on your authenticator and the fact you have 50k gold stockpiled. Which apparently is what the victim in this story must have done.problem solved!
