Yubico USB Key Provides Extra Login Protection [Security]
Password theft is a common problem on the Internet these days. Attackers use numerous ways to steal login credentials from users including phishing attacks via email, brute force attacks that try to guess the password, trojans and computer viruses or keyloggers that record every keystroke of the user.
The best protection against those kind of attacks are strong passwords, an up to date computer system with security software installed and an open educated mind that uses caution and common sense whenever passwords or other personal information are entered on the Internet.
Some security software programs can aid the user in protecting the data. Software programs like Last Pass or KeePass, a password manager that can generate secure passwords and remember them for the user, are examples of this.
