RSA Hacked!

When it comes to security, RSA is a bit of a gold standard. That's why I was shocked and chagrined to hear that RSDA's two-factor authentication tool, SecurID, has been compromised.

This is a big deal since SecurID is used in highly sensitive settings such as online banking.

It seems that hackers have learned the ins and outs of SecurID, but apparently haven't learned enough to launch a successful attack.
