And reverse engineer all the code to work out the number sequence,
which is hugely complicated.
There's keygens for virtually any piece of software out there, so I
guess it's not so hard for someone with the right knowledge.
The algorithm is certainly public (the best commercial ones are).
But you need the serial code
As long as you are not dumb enough to
give someone your serial code its hack free.
from the FAQ:
You can associate your Battle.net Authenticator to the World of Warcraft
account you play by logging into Account Management. Click the "Add
Battle.net Authenticator" button and then enter the serial number on the
back of your Battle.net Authenticator.
So you actually have to enter the serial n. from your PC, even if you do
it only once.
You have to enter it on an encrypted web page, and only once. It's not stored
on your pc.
I'm not criticizing here, just trying to understand why they're
pretending money for a keygen. Even the phone application isn't
The keychain one cost 25$ for 1000 units if you buy them from the manufactor.
I doubt Blizzard is gaining any money from authenticators.
