Unless you got phished or used the same password elsewhere it's worth considering that your computer could be compromised.
Interesting - my computer was hanging at startup, so I reinstalled Windows. Maybe I had a bot or something running? It's gone now.
I tried reporting this activity yesterday, but tech support was swapped. No email, no phone, and Live Chat was a 90 minute wait!
Authenticators are an RSA token key. It's definitely not just a "discourager". It basically encrypts a password that changes every 60s or so. Your key has to match the servers key or your login is denied. So even if a keylogger gets your authenticator key or serial number they still don't have the info they need to login to your account because that key is going to change before they use it.
I guess I don't understand how token keys identify me over someone else with my email, password and the Authenticator app?
Anyway, I was playing D3 last night and I went to put something in my stash. Well, low and behold, my stash has a level 60 weapon, a level ~40 crossbow (my Demon Hunter can use this once he's to level), stacks of perfect square gems and training tomes, and some blacksmith plans.
This sounds like farming, right?
