Some of you might use SecurID keyfobs at your place of work for authentication. Press a little button, up pops some number, you enter that with your usual login and password, and you're logged in to your work PC. Pretty secure stuff, since it means keyloggers and such suddenly aren't good enough anymore, you also need a good pickpocket.Blizzard thought that was a good idea too.
On sale as of today (I guess) for $6.50 ($7 after tax and ground shipping), you can add these to your WoW account(s) (and maybe other Blizzard accounts in the future), and from then on it'll require your current SecurID number along with your login and password. Nerdy as all hell on the one hand, but on the other, what's seven bucks to guard against possibly hundreds of dollars of loss?
Anyone else gonna buy one of these things
, or have any experiences using similar systems elsewhere? Any problems with them or that sort of thing?
(e: I wonder if this is more MMO Extravaganza or G&T Proper material?)
