Like many I don't think this is the fault of the authenticator. Given the difficulty it's highly unlikely that any "hacker" has yet gone through the trouble required to guess an authenticator code. And even if someone has developed a technique and is trying it on wow it's unlikely that this one individual was such a prized target that he and he alone was the victim of this technique.I believe he left the authenticator laying around (perhaps just looked away briefly) and someone he knew with knowledge of his account name and password (perhaps he uses the same elsewhere) played a very nasty prank on him. It may be someone who has never even played wow and thus doesn't understand how much damage they caused.If you get an authenticator. Keep it secret, keep it safe!
