You need to call them. Do not buy anything else, call. Keep calling, and dont let up.

Updating programs/Windows and using different passwords for relatively important accounts like your email and such. I'm sure you only visited those sites on your desktop and always keep everything up to date, and only search with adblock and other security add-ons enabled. Then you just mysteriously got brute forced, right.

If that is the case then stop using such simple passwords.

I can almost guarantee you used the same password for your accounts sites like GameFaqs are easier to compromise and get lists of emails and passwords then they just use those to get onto either your WoW account directly or on your email and use a password recovery. Get a brand new email that's completely different from your other one and have a completely random password just think of random numbers and letters and have different caps ect, write it down and keep it with you.

I do pretty much all those things. Chrome with popup blocker, I update windows straight away each time. I create random passwords that are 13 or more characters for accounts that will allow it, consisting of both letters and numbers with a mix of capitals thrown in. Secret question doesn't ever have a matching answer and also adheres to the password criteria. Passwords for email, wow, and minecraft are changed each 3 weeks.

I remember them because I make a giant crossword each year and the random elements are deciphered from that but never outlined in the crossword as a whole.

What else... I get my computer serviced every 3 months at plug and play. Have 2 antivirus programs I run frequently, but to be truthful I only really run one of them manually because the other has active scanning. Though they do usually pick up each other, the viruses that are detected are immediately removed.

And no it'd be stupid if I was brute forced, I have enough trouble remembering the passwords. As for secret questions, Mine was made 5 years ago on a laptop that now sits dead in my room (melted processor which is why I get it checked up on so often now).

I had been hacked previously on my old computer, however had also verified my identity and changed the secret question again after switching to the new one.

So, no, I'm pretty sure I tried hard to prevent any hacking or viruses or pretty much anything I could think of.

TC literally has a laptop dedicated to porn and smut.
For some reason that just tickles me something special.

It's so I can just go do my business wherever. Computer is in our lounge and really a laptop is the best option for porn, it's relatively inexpensive, doesn't need a graphics card or anything. Can survive multiple wipes and cuz I don't have any password information on there it shouldn't have any influence over my account security. Also it needs a password and fingerprint to work, so... easy to keep out of reach of children.

Anyway I tried the authenticator again and it appears to have worked. Also I'm going to take one of your ideas into account and create a wow specific email address with randomized letters. Actually I'm going to split email accounts and have three with randomized numbers and letters, one for Blizz, one for Minecraft and one for other games, well new games that I add, changing emails isn't always an option.

Apart from that I'm stuck for ideas about beefing up my security.

Diablo 3, I made another ticket for so hopefully today's help desk are a little more helpful.

you weren't 'hacked'. You hilariously gave up your password willingly, because you were easily fooled into doing so by an email or other method. Saying you got 'hacked' is something people like to say, because they think it makes them look like helpless, poor victim. Yet, you could have helped yourself if you had common sense.
