Rimar -A lot of accounts are 'brute forced' these days. Even if your system is clean (check with more than one spybot/virus program to be sure!) hackers with a lot of time on their hands can pick random emails and run programs that brute force the password, IE, they took a lot of wild guesses. AFAIK, WoW does not have a 'you cannot log in for X amount of time due to failed passwords' feature that a lot of banks and the like have, so they just keep guessing. Programs can do this super fast, without any human input. This is commonly how free web emails get hacked into for spammers, too.
