WoW authenticators bypassed by middlemen hackers

Shane 8
WTF?

WoW Auths

These suggested Authenticators generate a "random" number which is used to gain access to your BattleNet account (can be used to gain access to more than 1 WoW account). Assuming its a "random" number then wouldn't any number work? No, its obviously a algorithm which involves the Authenticators barcode/serial number.

Regarding Auths hacked:

A trojan used on these is no different than using it before these Authenticators came out, if your stupid enough to not have a AV installed and to download/visit dodgy sites (free gold/mounts do NOT exist) then you deserve to get one.

imo.

A good *free* utility for remote support (morely for internal) would be https://connectnow.acrobat.com. Allows you to remotely control their computer (with they permission) and also you can show your screen to them, transfer files between each other.

The program you speak of doesn't work anymore for activiation, and why the hell would you need a program to turn off UAC ? You can do it yourself with 3 clicks of a mouse.

[/quote]

On windows 7 you cannot turn off the UAC just turn it to low, i have tried..seems one of the main changes they did since vista (which it can be turned off).

Also downloading a CD or getting a copy CD is not illegal just supplying the CD-Key is.

WoW down for 2 months...

So the offical WoW in china has been down for 2 months and you think people stopped playing? China has the highest rating of piracy worldwide if one route gets blocked there will always be another open, VPN tunnels / proxies you name it. You stop them playing on one server and they start up on another (as we know they can get 1-70 in under 2 weeks for just $70!).
