I honestly think the authenticator password should be mandatory. Theres a ton of bots in game and almost all of them are hacked accounts. mmorpgs should just force the use of authenticators so this doesnt happen. most people arent stupid enough to fall for phishing scams, have unique passwords, and they dont buy gold, but they still get hacked anyway. I find that a lot of 3rd party websites targetted to the mmorpg of choice, have lot of security flaws and are even displaying banner ads asking you to buy gold for that specific game. I'm pretty sure this is how a lot of people are getting infected and their passwords stolen, from visiting ffxiv wiki or something to just look up skills or an item and then having some malicious script install a keylogger or worm into their computer. honestly, when i visit one of those ffxiv wiki's i feel like they are being hosted by the same companies running illegal streaming sites, except now the people installing viruses know exactly what virus to send to my computer to get my information.
i hate bots and gold sellers, they along with people who buy from them should just die.
