So blizz noticed the "hacker" via them logging in from some other country (i guess) yet locked it after they messed with it?

MmmHmm. :P

Mine was hacked.. Had........ 10000000 gold. Really.

$10 says that he is signed up at some forum fan site somewhere that got their database compromised.

Played the game for like 5 months no aunthenticator and didn't get hacked. There's more to the story than the person who posts "OMGZ I GOT HAXX0R3D!" True story is that they have problems managing their passwords and sign up to EVERYTHING online with the same username and password. Usually the OP never posts all the details and concealed that they did something else that got their account compromised trying to make us sympathize with the situation.

I bet his password was monkey.

Password check!

I couldn't tell how much that amount was. Could you perhaps use commas or spaces next time?

10M isn't much more than 4, so i don't see why you should feel special
