Answer honestly: Has anyone been hacked with an authenticator?

I was hacked on my account when I didnt have an authenticator on. I was only lvl 37 or so. I figure I'll just reroll a different class and pick up items for both characters when they get close in level. I put on an authenticator, and I'm hoping this will prevent it from happening again.

And no I didnt download a keylogger or anything like that. I'm 100% sure this was not a problem on my end.
I play by my own rules. Nobody else's. Not even my own.

Yeah, there was a time in WoW when people were hacking autheniticator accounts. They got that fixed pretty fast though.

Also, its the Blizzard usual. "Its not our fault, its yours." Which in a lot of cases, it is, but they tend to refuse to take any sort of blame at all.

That is the dumbest thing I have ever hard.

WHY would anyone buy gold for D3 right now?

I never have, nor would I buy gold and I was hacked. Doing so is just going to ruin your game. Even if you did want to buy gold for some reason, you sure wouldn't do it till you were a higher level, but many people who havn't even finished normal difficulty have been hacked.

Could you please show a link where Blizzard said that? I honestly can't believe they would say something that stupid. They have been friendly and helpful for the most part and that statement is just too blatently false to make any sense.
No duckies, just drowning.

Asking for honesty on the internet?
I'm afraid it's not going to work out like that. :S

One of the blizzard staff admitted that the authenticators don't work. Not sure if the thread will be there for long.

My little brother had an authenticator and was still hacked.

I love this:

While following these tips will go a long way to keeping your account secure, no account-security method is 100% foolproof. If you ever find yourself affected by an account compromise, don't panic. Our in-game, account, and technical support representatives will work with you to restore your account. Our Help! I got Hacked! guide goes into all the details, and for more information be sure to review our restoration process for Diablo III. Rest assured that we've got your back (and your lewtz) should you need us

They flat out admit that even with everything, anti-virus authenticator and whatever you are still liable to be hacked.

Even funnier is that for their Phishing FAQ it takes you to MS Vista page. Way to keep up to date Blizz, really taking security seriously if you assume everyone still uses Vista.
Assumption is the mother of all stuff ups.

Do you guys remember the blue post admitting to this?

I'll paraphrase:

"There were a number people with authenticators who reported they have been hacked.
However when I checked their system logs - it seems they have frequented sites and tried out P2P sharing programs which made their system unsecure."


- The authenticator gives you a code which you have to input when you log in
- The only person who can see that code - is YOURSELF
(or the person over your shoulder; or your dog if you show it to him like "Hey puppy! Look at the code!"

A Few Loopholes:

- How can a "blue post" insinuate that players with authenticators were hacked because "of some software that came from some porn site"?

- Unless there's a hack program which allows you to view the world FROM THE EYES OF A PERSON - to see the authentication code - you should not get hacked at all.

- But apparently the "blue" STILL blames the activities of authenticated players and points it out as "oh it's a software that got ya!"
