Blizzard is responsible for the security of their own service. Yet people - like nin - twist the situation and blame the end user, despite equally high profile games like TF2 being unaffected.
Securing their service is one thing. Securing your PC to prevent people from stealing your credentials is something else entirely. They could make it somewhat more secure, sure. But then people will bitch about how they have to go through all these other steps just to login to a game. There's really no winning in this situation for Blizzard. There's a very large percentage of people that can't be bothered to learn even the basics of how to keep themselves safe online. They think that because they have some a/v software on their system that they should be safe. Can't really do much for people like that.

Somebody logging in from a different computer from a different location should have triggered additional security measures - an obvious one being to send an email that must be accessed in order to access the account (ala Steam). Blizzard fucked this up on its own.
If they've rooted your PC, you've already lost. They know all your info, including IP address, and probably have access to your email account. Not sure if it's being done yet or not, but they could even use your own PC to login and steal your account.
