My account was hacked last week, the day after the patch dropped (still waiting to see if any of my deleted toons and pilfered gear will be restored), and I'm a paranoid, fairly intelligent, Mac internet user who doesn't visit porn sites, click suspicious links, or download illegal content.A friend suggested that this App, which I did have on my iPhone and often prompted me to enter my login info, may have been the chink in my armor. Anyone else hear anything to this effect? I've since deleted the app from my mobile and installed an authenticator after confirming a clean system and restoring/resetting my battlenet account. Prior to this summer, I did rarely play WoW on my old PC when the Mac was rendering files for my video editing work, so I suppose that may have been where the security breach happened, but that was months ago. Just wondering if there was any credence to the app being a possible security risk.Bored as hell after a week of waiting for Blizzard's "specialist" to assess my situation, and bummed that I haven't been able to try out the Dungeon Finder or take part in Winter Veil festivities.

as a fellow mac-user with this app, i've never heard any rumors of this. sorry you got hacked, and i have no idea whether it's the chink in your armor you suspect or not. i have an authenticator as well, and i recommend it — as you know, you can't be too careful.
