When was it confirmed by Blizzard as genuine? All I saw there was a blue saying:

After looking into this, it has been escalated, but it is a Man in the Middle attack.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-in-the-middle_attack

This is still perpetrated by key loggers, and no method is always 100% secure.


And to be honest I don't think he meant to say this -actually happened-, after all, it has been escalated, he's just a first-line Blizzard forum monkey and his technical knowledge is limited to "Reboot and try again". I think he'll get his hands slapped by Blizz for propagating a (needless) panic.

The authenticator token is the same kind of security is used to secure online banking. Anyone with the facility to launch an attack of this nature would go after the banks and financial institutions, not a cheap-ass online game. It's like developing an huge army of heavily-armed killer cyborgs to mug a schoolkid for his spare change.
