Security: Two factor Authentication Spreads
One for Technollama this :-)
We all know about the physical tokens or dongles you can now get to provide two factor authentication for your online banking services. In fact Pangloss was recently surprised to discover she could now not set up a new online payee without the use of one, on her RBOS account: it arrived in the post this morning by which time she had made the payment by phone:-) Anyway.
Some World of Warcraft players are now apparently so worried at the idea of their account being haXXored (leet spelling not authenticated..) by Chinese gold farmers etc that Blizzard is selling them two factor authentication as well. Interesting..
