The Lawbringer: Account security and you {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2010 1:50PM In WOW_Addict's defense, Windows 7 protects the Clipboard as part of the kernel now, if you are operating as a user level instead of an Administrator. (as everyone should be, always.)

Still, not a great substitute, but better than what most were doing at the time. And it doesn't fool screen scrapers.

The Lawbringer: Account security and you {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2010 1:46PM Zul is misinterpreting his personal experience and defining risk based on his one unique scenario.

If you are terrible at the internet, so to speak, yes, you are at a much higher risk of getting hacked.

However, even if you have no internet activity on the computer aside from opening ports to WoW, use a secure VPN tunnel to log in, have a unique email and 256 bit password to launch WoW, you still can get hacked. You just have a much lower risk.

Every single large enterprise has gone to some form of two-factor authentication for their workers logging into their network. They do this because it is much harder to spoof an RSA key code or certificate AND a primary authentication credential, at the same time, without triggering a lockout mechanism. This further reduces your risk, much more than the first scenario.

The moral of the story is to do both. Be careful and use the two-factor authenticator. It won't make you bulletproof, but then again, most won't bother targeting you, either, when there are much easier targets out there.
