Authenticators are the best WOW security right now. . . . not the best internet security. Thank god these hackers and social engineers are spending so much time hacking WOW. My wife and I am pretty safe we really only use the interent to play wow, send email and go to the same two or three sites (safe sites) over and over. We aren't internet surfers, she got hacked and we both got authenticators right away. I am just glad that these people are going after WOW because I guess they cannot be prosecuted as heavily for stealing virtual goods instead of using the keylog to get my Paypal or credit card info when i pay a bill, or my bank info when i check an account balance.Authenticators work, they are not foolproof or social engineer proof, But I believe that if all WoW users had them then it would deter 90% of hacking, the stolen accounts would be from people falling for scams, using gold buying or leveling services.BTW, the hackers stealing accounts and putting authenticators on the accounts, brilliant.Why hasn't Blizz locked out those authenticator serials? You can use or reuse an authenticator. Blocking them causes the people to have to reset their Ipod/Iphone app or buy a new keyfob.My wife and I shared the Ipod touch app for three separate accounts just fine.
