My personal email and World of Warcraft account both got hacked last night.

I never would have known if A) friend from WoW hadn't IM'd me saying "Hey i thought you'd left WoW a long time ago, your DK is online" and then B) Google hadn't alerted me that someone from China logged into my GMail account.

I of course changed my password on both accounts to unique passwords immediately and started downloading the WoW client to log into my account... but it was too little too late. By the time I started emailing Blizzard about what had happened, the stupid hacker had slapped an authenticator on the account at 6:30 this morning - hours and hours after I had already changed both passwords, which really pisses me off.

From armory view, it seems like most of my characters have been untouched, except for my favorite (main) character which I had put the most time into. Most of her gear had been sold off already, and chances are all of her currency (gold).

I run on a Mac and recently reformatted it, so I know I don't have any keyloggers on the computer. However, I know how they got the information - some sensitive personal data had been saved to Arnold's GMail account, which was compromised two days ago :/ So we're both basically going through the same process right now.
