While my sympathies go out to anyone that was "hacked", it does not mean that some master hacker did some arcane things to their account. Far more prevalent is account sharing, leaving your password around for ex-friends/flatmates/partners/work colleaguers/schoolmates, using a computer not your own, believing an in-game offer, actually replying to any phishing email, downloading EXE files, clicking on attachments or very rarely, a drive-by because you didn't update your OS. As for bypassing or removing an authenticator - good luck with that.No it's not your fault if you get "hacked", that blame still lies with the evil bastards who did it, but taking responsibility for your own security will make it a lot harder for them.
