How about people stop "letting them" log onto their accounts? That you even suggested I "let them" do as you typed shows you or any of the victims don't care about your account OR COMPUTER enough to secure it properly.Use an authenticator, if possible [I don't, but I don't need it - see the reasons below]Use the same [or even better, more complicated] password rules that even the crummiest I.T. department would require of a network user.Make your password difficult, and don't share it.Here is another good rule to follow: approach any mail from "Blizzard" with incredulity. Don't click on links in e-mail. Don't visit websites with pornography or warez.Don't visit gold selling websites, or websites that offer tricks or hacks for WoW.Common sense not only shuts down the social engineering that these hackers use to get your password, but also works great as trojan/virus/keylogger deterrents.
