Hmmm....is that why the authenticator login block is with the password now?


If anything, it lessens the window of opportunity for them to hack the account. If they have the right spyware on the machine, it'll know exactly when the wow.exe process is executed. They'll then immediately be blocking your credentials from being sent to blizzard and redirect them to their servers. That's basically how they've been hacking accounts with authenticators.




if keyloggers look for wow.exe process execution...mac is safe...they would have to write a program for our .xxx process, right?


The short answer is yes. Mac's aren't immune to infections, but are less susceptible. They could modify their trojan to look for whatever the wow process is on a mac.


Indeed...and as long as Macs represent a much smaller percent of the market than Windows, fewer virus writers are going to even bother writing a Mac virus. They get a lot more potential targets writing Windows viruses.

for the record, even us lowly canadians can order an authenticator and get it shipped to us in roughly 3 days.

Good times gone, how quickly, an honest past. My god now, I see how, I've squandered each and every breath...

3 days, really? Must be using greyhounds on the sleds now eh?
