    Pretty sure my account got hacked.

    I get up, check my email, and I find an email saying that I've received a 3-hour ban because of third party spamming, which I didn't do, and when I tried to log on, I got asked for an authenticator code, which I didn't ask for. I sent Blizzard an email telling them what's up, but no response yet, not surprising.

    I checked myself on armory, and I am indeed naked. Anybody have any experience with this? It happened within the last 24 hours, so according to their help page, they should be able to recover my stuff, which is good, because I would be holy pissed off if I couldn't get my stuff back.

    i'm high and mighty because i spent 6 dollars on a very incredible tool that allows my account to virtually never be hacked?

    also, if all your friends are doing it then it must be the cool thing to do, right? look what the guy who has your account now got for not following a logic so fucking retarded as 'nobody i know has one'.

    It's not surprising because people get hacked every day, which means the queue of hacked account restorations is very, very long. Search this subforum for the testimonials you seek, put in an order for a authenticator TODAY and as soon as you get your account back, attach it to your battle.net account.

    In case you're wondering why it was so easy to get hacked, it's because folks looking to steal your account don't have to guess both your username and password anymore. Now that the email is your single sign-in for everything all they need to do is keylog your password and shazam, bye bye account. Run an anti-malware scan or two or three, get your machine uninfected while you wait for Blizzard to respond.

    P.S. buy an authenticator. Or get the free authenticator app for your smartphone of choice.

    I can't buy an authenticator now, I need an authenticator code to buy one, which I don't have.

    Technically false, but it does add another security layer

    Probable attack methods

    Without authenticator:
    - man in middle attack
    - dictionary attack
    - pfishing
    - keylogging

    with authenticator:
    - man in middle

    You tell me which one is safer. MIM is completely preventable if you keep your shit clean with decent anti-(virus/malware) tools, which makes your account virtually bulletproof.

    Does no one know what the word virtually means?

    Edit: Hint: Norellicus is using it correctly

    Authenticator is free on the Android Market, don't know about iPhone but I'm guessing it's the same. Paying for one makes you a sucker if you have one of these devices.

    That said, it's also a massive pain in the ass that I don't have time for(or rather, wouldn't if I still played). Don't be a retard and you won't get hacked.

    right, but you're also a complete fucking moron (obviously.) if you don't realize that keyloggers are always being updated. ALWAYS. Where as an authenticator is never being updated. NEVER. The first one to "crack" an authenticator wasn't too long ago, before long most of the new ones will have the same shit in them. if you have an authenticator and have something on your PC it's because you got an old keylogger, that's just how it is. DERP DERP. fucking morons
