For all I know, all of my authenticators are just placebos; I’ve never actually had an account get hacked. There are accounts I’ve lost access to for one reason or another, usually my own lack of attentiveness for keeping things in place, but none of them has actually been hacked. Whether it’s because of account authentication or it just hasn’t happened is purely speculative on my part.
However, I know for a fact that this isn’t universal; I’ve had friends who have gotten their accounts hacked, for reasons ranging from keyloggers to bad security to just dumb luck. It happens, and today I’m more curious about which side of the equation you fall on, dear readers. Have any of your MMO accounts been hacked? Was it something recent or something in the distant past? And whether you were hacked or not, has news of account hacking changed how you protect those accounts?
