I think the "condom analogy" is a stupid one for an authenticator. If you have a keylogger or a phishing site you access, I suspect even an authenticator with a 99.999% security rate could be worthless. Blizz seems naive about security sometimes. For example, when I converted to a battle.net account I used my common email. Learning that was stupid, I changed it to a new email created solely for WoW. It changed it quickly, and only a few hours later I got a "Your email address has changed" on my old email. Enough time for a hacker to loot it blind before I knew if it was someone else who did it. Knowing this, I wouldn't be surprised if a hacker could exploit a "Um, dude, i lost my authenticator."I hope Blizz is better with authenticators though than with Battle.net
