Have You Rooted Your Android Phone? Blizzard Knows

After firing up Starcraft II for the first time I realized I should take another look at Blizzard's authenticator app for Android.  It's a bit more convenient then keeping track of a little key fob.  Just as I was wondering if it was really such a good idea considering I would probably switch to a ROM without thinking and lose access to my account I saw this message.  I was shocked and a little impressed.  I was impressed that Blizzard could (and had the foresight to) detect this and that they cared to display a warning.

Then again, ROM users should probably steer clear for other reasons than possibly compromising security.  If you switch ROMs without removing the authenticator first you'll be locked out of your account until you can contact Blizzard and plead for help.
