Ive seen it happen to three people in my time playing.One was an idiot and went to wowdupe.Second claimed he "didn't know what happened", but had shared his account info with his brothers and subsequently, a friend of those brothers. He was also known for being the type of person who cannot admit they're at fault. Third was a botter. After Glider was taken out, he went on a mad search for replacements. His account was compromised a week later, and our guild lost tons of enchanting mats.So I've seen the whole spectrum of accounts being compromised. There were a few others who used hacking as an excuse for trying to ninja our bank. I'm pretty sure they were not actually hacked. I know some others who bought gold, but I think they got away with it.I agree it's a problem, even more so after the battle.net merger. But I think the best way to attack the problem is mandating the authenticators WITHOUT charging the customers. If we have to wait until cataclysm, so be it. But even at that point, authenticators should be shipped for free to each account.If you mandate the authenticators and ship them wit the expansion that's good, but that still effectively locks out everyone else who doesn't buy the expansion. Don't treat your customers poorly blizzard! Ship them for free, take the financial hit, and ship them with each copy sold from here on out! Everyone wins.
