When you have real money in play, then you are really motivating the hackers to look for exploits to make real money.

This is what has worried me about it, too. Game design aspects aside, a real money AH means a lot more people seeing $$$ in grabbing people's accounts.

Blizzard already has the only games I've ever honestly worried about my accounts with in the first place, and I get multiple phishing emails every single day warning me about my "compromised account" or that my account is under investigation. On both of my email accounts, one that I never used for anything related to their games at all.

I have an authenticator, but it just seems like a matter of time until the stuff that generated this headline becomes a huge game-breaking deal to a lot more people.
