I run Wow on Linux, and I am still getting an authenticator. Although the authenticator can't protect against phishing sites, as the phisher can log in to your account right after the code is entered into the web site, it can come in handy when talking to support. You can verify your identity with an authenticator. I wish the authenticator used a shared-key encryption instead of a single use password. Blizzard would give you a code, you could type it into the authenticator, and password would be returned to the user. If the authenticator used this type of verification the phishing sites would go away.
