Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but last night one of our officers got hacked. With no GM on we couldn't demote him, so I went to Org and decided to film him stealing our Guild bank gold. I ended up uncovering a well organised and efficient Gold selling group who clearly have done this enough times to know how and what to do. We also see people from our server going to them and buying gold, just a little PSA on it as the Officer who got hacked had an Authenticator linked to his account.
This happens so much within the game that its probably not a shock to anyone out there. Let me know if there is anyone out there who know of others getting hacked while having an Authenticator active.
Either he is
A - Telling porkies about having his authenticator
B - Turned his Authenticator off
C - Emptied the Gbank himself.
or he was the victim of a "man in the middle" attack. where the hackers grab the authenticator code as he inputs it, sends a fake one to blizzard which denies him access, and then they log on with the authenticator details. (very unlikely due to a number of reasons)
Yep if he had an authenticator either he stole it himself, gave access to someone who could by turning it off and selling his account. Well there's a number of ways this happened but none of them involved his account being compromised.
He 100% got his account hacked. He has been within the guild as an officer for the last 4 years, He is an RL friend to a lot of us as well so this isn't staged. He does have an authenticator which is the original one Blizzard released back when they first came out. I have the same model one that he has. This video was just to create awareness and to see if there were any others out there that this has happen to. I have tweeted it to Blizzard and I may take up the suggestions and post it on the WoW support forums as well.
