Big thread on the official forums with various players reporting that they've been hacked while remaining online and using Blizzard's authenticator:

Interesting article here from a reporter who herself got hacked:
This reporter, after having her own account with authenticator hacked, firmly believes this is a serious security breach on Blizzard’s side, though they either do not want to admit it, or are still unaware of the problem. Many who have had their account on Diablo 3 hacked were logged in at the time of the hack and support staff tells them there was no evidence of their account being hacked. That indicates there is an exploit in the system being taken advantage of.

Blizzard are "looking into it":
We've been taking the situation extremely seriously from the start, and have done everything possible to verify how and in what circumstances these compromises are occurring. Despite the claims and theories being made, we have yet to find any situations in which a person's account was not compromised through traditional means of someone else logging into their account through the use of their password. While the authenticator isn't a 100% guarantee of account security, we have yet to investigate a compromise report in which an authenticator was attached beforehand.
If your account has been hacked, please view the previous post for information on contacting our support department.

Not sure why no one's reported it here already but the volumes of reports of being hacked on the battle.net forums make me wonder why it's so prevalent. Anyone here that plays the game have been hacked? :/
