Authenticators can only do so much thought - they don't help you if you compromise your own system - intentionally or accidentally.I remember reading one of the wowinsider commentors saying that he claimed he only went to good sites he trusted, but he ended up getting some sort of virus or keylogger which pretended to be the wow load up page. So he entered his information and it declined - he thought it was just wow messing up so he thought nothing more of it and left it alone. But in fact it was the hacker stealing his information that he keylogged from the guy. And apparently, the hacker had to be actively watching for the information because he was able to log in with that Authenticator's code within those 30 seconds.Now I don't know what these "safe" sites were, but crap happens that even a "safe" site could get compromised somewhere. So the authenticator is only as good as the system security it is on.
