Sadly, I'm currently too busy to write a lengthy post and give the following information the credit of being well written, as it's due. So forgive me the layout and so forth. For now though, I'd like to get the core information out there for Emerald players, since account cleaning (hacking) is on the rise lately.
Just before expansion kickoff Blizzard times a widespread ban on gold trade accounts. This includes the bots, farmers, stockpile accounts, and traders. At the same time, new content spikes gold demand that is low and costly during stale content. During those spikes, the trader pulls from whoever they can in supply to make the orders to the consumer. Suppliers make their money off of this cycle, that said, it's a fantastic time to do some well needed account checkups to protect yourself from the inc cleaning wave.
Now to the purpose of this post. Aside from lacking an authenticator, the largest reason cleaned accounts get put in the stockpile que to be hacked, is players tend to have a bad habit to not use unique passwords for logins. Meaning, if your Emerald Drama password and email are the same as your login, you need to change your Accounts password ASAP. Third Party Forums, are extremely high on the "lack of security" risk to have their data cores hacked and stored for later dates. Since its about the time for suppliers to cash in their cards, it may save you some heartache later. ^.^
TLDR: If your Emerald Drama password and email are the same as your login, you need to change your Account's password ASAP.

^.^ Just make sure your Email, Battle, and Drama account passwords get changed, all seperate and unique. I'm more than sure you're not alone. <3
Speaking of, It'd make a great ((and cheap)) holiday gift for friends and close guildies. I'd imagine you could check the pets in the armory for their Core Hound Pet if not sure. *wink wink*
