Submission + - Ask Slashdot: GOOG Authenticator Borked?

Diamond Tree writes: I have noticed, over time, a large number of duplicate digits (out of 6) in my 2FA for my Google Account.

Just in front of me now, typing as it cycles: two 1s out of 6 digits; three 9s out of 6 digits; two 9s; two 3s; two 8s & two 3s (same code); two 1s; two 4s & two 3s (same code)... etc., etc.

Anyone got a statistical analysis of the likelihood of so many apparent duplicate numbers?
Anyone know if the GOOG authenticator is compromised, or indirect evidence of same?

Or, is it some kind of setup-related issue?

Or, is it not an issue?
