GU Comics Gets Hacked, Hosts Authenticator Contest

In an effort to promote World of Warcraft account security, Woody Hearn of GU Comics is giving away authenticators to players who can write the best limericks.


Today's installment of GU Comics pokes fun at World of Warcraft hackers and gold sellers, but it's actually a topic that resonates with creator Woody Hearn. His significant other recently reopened her WoW account and they scheduled time to play together last night, only to discover that her account had been suspended due to suspicious activity. Blizzard was ultimately able to resolve the situation this morning, and she has added an authenticator to her account.

In an effort to promote WoW account security, Hearn has teamed up with Blizzard to give away five Battle.net authenticators to some creative players. To enter, all you need to do is head over to this thread on the GU Forums and submit a limerick about account security. Hearn will pick five winners at the end of the week, so get to work on your entry!

If Hearn doesn't choose your limerick, you can still download a free Battle.net Mobile Authenticator for your phone or purchase a physical one for $6.50 in the Blizzard Store. Do you have an authenticator?

Just a note. The mobile one is only free if you are using a iPhone or iPod. They don't seam to have one for the Android just yet.
The others are for a limited number of phones and cost $0.99.

A link? or some other info. Because the link on WoW's site is grayed out when it comes to Android.
