This week I got an email from Blizzard (legitimate) saying the password on my old account had been changed. This account has been non-paid for at least 3 months (without me even trying to log into it). I go to the account and yes - password is changed.The account has an authenticator on it, my computer has no malware or viruses. Even my wife doesn't know the password. I did the automated recovery which worked fine. When I got back into the account only the password had been changed. The authenticator was still on the account.My question is this - how was this account compromised?
