WoW account hacked

Last night my World of Warcraft account was hacked and used by gold-farmers (sort of ironic after reading Cory Doctorow's "For the Win" recently). I woke up this morning to an email from Blizzard letting me know my account was suspended. I know it was hacked because I was able to see my characters through the iPhone Armory app and there were a whole bunch of level 1 characters on my account on servers that I've never even touched.

I did not give out my password to anyone. I know what a phishing email looks like. The only things I did differently was go into a PvP battle ground yesterday for the first time and use the iPhone Armory app's Auction House beta.
