I agree with you. While having an authenticator means that your WoW account is (currently) bullet proof it doesn't mean you can't rubbish up your system. Learning to protect yourself online doesn't just mean your account, what about your card details etc are you protecting those fully?Oh and while they can't currently crack open authenticators I wouldn't be surprised if they find a way sooner or later, either through social engineering ("sorry, we think you got a bad authenticator") or coming up with something else. One of the main reasons that authenticators provide protection is that they represent another layer to circumvent, to a scammer there are easier pickings but as more people start using authenticators the scammers will work harder to get round them.The best security is still knowing what your doing: keep your stuff up to date, be careful what you click in emails or on websites and listen to advice carefully (ie listen and check it).
