Is there a precedent for authenticator accounts being hacked?I ask this because I received an email earlier this afternoon informing me that my account had been suspended for 72 hours for "Exploitative Activity: Use of Third Party Automation Software".I respect the dignity of this game too much to ever even consider hacking. I've never shared my account information with anyone, and after the excellent Breakfast topic last week I trekked back to Stratholme and picked up the "Piccolo of the Flaming Fire" to mess with goldspammers in Org.After receiving the email, I attempted to log into my account and was informed I had the wrong information. It was only after going through the password reclamation process that I was informed by the client that I had been suspended. This leads me to believe that my account was hacked despite my use of an authenticator for the past eight months. I'm a little disturbed because I paid for the effing thing, and if it isn't even keeping my account safe, I'm a little confused about what its purpose is.
