    Re: Authenticator Accounts Hacked, ICC Quests, Crimson Deathcharger

    Computer users running some form of Mac OS X are immune to this particular Trojan Horse since it is a DLL which only works within the Windows environment. However, that does not mean there will never been one that targets the Mac. As always, users should be highly suspicious of any attempts by 3rd party software to elevate privileges by throwing up a screen which requires you to re-authenticate as an administrator. Unless you are installing legitimate commercial software or merely changing System Preferences via your own initiation, you are not wise to grant credentials.

    I never considered keylogging a hack. I mean basically someone is downloading something bad onto there computer. Its not the the keylogger forced its way on there. Someone was stupid and careless so they got a keylogger and now someone has there authenticator whatever. Its nice that Bliz is aware of this and helping people out but you'd have to be beyond stupid to download something like this...

    nice to see that they´re adding new stuff to icc even after its release.

    there are still 4 buffs in the gamefiles wich empowers arthas(blood,unholy,...) so maybe we see some yogghardmode mechanic in a few weeks(months?) at the arthas encounter and rewards you with the chest?

    Nice to see that the main characters will have a few sentences to say about Arthas. Really cool that they didnt just forget him.

    Hardly any need to worry about the hacked attempt on authenticators - if you're up to date with security the chances of that happening is next to nothing really. And even so, it would require the person to be active at the time you're logging in and they only got a small window to work with.

    So again, keylogger issue - same security measures as usual.


    I suppose Blizzard's next step to up the security somewhat with regards to the authenticator... if the immediate IP address for logging in don't match for the IP address on authenticator code request should deny access to the account.

    After all the "get an authenticator and your account will be safe" I've seen on the forums, I can only laugh and say it's well deserved.

    Activator codes are only useful for 30 seconds right?

    I'll take a 30 second hackable window from a single virus i'll probably never encounter, to a "until i notice my accounts stolen" timeframe from any old keylogger

    And that never changed... the only thing to laugh is that ppl will still say it's as safe as not having it...

    As everyone always said... they still need to get your code and do everything in a few seconds... they're better stealing your authenticator personally, lol.

    And all that can be fixed really easy by blizzard on their login checking as people alread said.

    People who get hacked are idiots.

    People who need an "authenticator" to not get hacked are idiots.

    That's all, have a nice day.
