Well, if ever I get hacked, this will be useful.Of course, if people stopped clicking every link in their emails we wouldn't need recovery processes.

you of couse seem to ignore ads on "safe" websites being subject to rogue ads over time (i have seen my fair share of this happening to alot of good site), of course a good admin would fix this asp.when i first started wow in early 2007 i got a keylogger on a site that usualy is pretty safe (even today) but this can happen with any advertisment company from time to time.Back then blizzard didn't give a damn, once you were banned, you were banned, no exceptions. the account still remains locked today.thankfully i took precautions to avoid this ever happening again, and it has worked so far (i of course have been using anauthenticator since there launch also for more reassurance)so remember, emails are not the only way to get "Hacked"

It seems some people assumed that I meant that all people who get hacked is because they click random links in their emails. I understand it isn't.Generally speaking you shouldn't download something if you're aren't sure of what it does. Also, having a good firewall usually helps. Hackers can't just spirit away the control of your computer without executing some kind of program from your side.But of most of the hack stories I've heard of, it's people who will receive emails from 'Blizzard' and access the links they give (and installing whatever is there in the process), or they visit sites through google search or w/e that looks like the actual site, but isn't (eg wow.armory.com instead of wowarmory.com).The email comment isn't to make people look stupid. Just relating to the fact that it seems more than a few people with an email inbox seem to open all their junk mail and access everything in it.While this is a nice move on Blizz's part, I wish they'd just require authenticator use with Cataclysm, and send one with every box. Also, knowing a bit more about internet security helps. I'm surprised by how many people don't know still how an authenticator works or why it's useful.
