Not everyone who gets hacked is stupid. Sure, some are; those people handing over account details to powerlevelling services or similar should probably have thought twice before doing so, but a lot of people are getting hacked despite taking all the 'sensible' precautions (short of getting an authenticator).You see a lot of crap, especially in trade, from people saying things like 'I've never been hacked and I don't have an authenticator, ergo everyone who gets hacked is stooopid!' This attitude displays a lack of appreciation for quite how sophisticated and intelligent competent hackers can be. A lot of it is just down to luck, even anti-virus software isn't going to be foolproof.
