I can. Can you comprehend that I was stating that an authenticator can be defeated?
It can via Man in the middle attack as Im sure you know. While its not unheard of I'd bet its
10 bucks says he has "Don't authenticate everytime" enabled in his account settings.
instead of a MITM attack.
it is most likely key logger, or botts , go to website http://free.antivirus.com/rubotted/ this can also cause mitm attack. which is very hard to dectect because they go by ports systeams and only thing you detect is trafic it self. which most anti virus dont scan for some do some don't. Either way the real course of action is compleatly reinstalling your OS and you firefox and run no java scripts, turn off all cookies, change email accounts that has facebook tied to them. if you do this you can run your games without authencator without being hacked.
because 1. most hackers use facebooks to locate email address, which then they hack facebook, or email address. then by email address they look through mail to see likely heard of possible attacks or what you do. or they can skip that and check to hack your battlenet, now if you authentication their next option is to install log key, couple ways they can do this. One they can use email that looks normal and hope you just blindly open it. but they most smart enough no one is that blind anymore. so they go for second one and hope you java and your browser would auto play it.
Now depending if they can easly counter mail server antivirus server, the next option they can try is do dos attack and when you open your email account it directs to you like email but hoping your browser has auto java script can download the virus as well. little more work but can work as well.
