World of Warcraft Security Dongle

Online assets from MMORPG are becoming more valuable in the real world all the time, with virtual products offered for sale in online auctions and classifieds becoming quite the norm. The World of Warcraft, definitely one of the largest, is beefing up its security model by selling a six digit authentication code generator.

The Blizzard Authenticator hooks on to your keyring, and acts as an extra token when signing in.  The generated number from the security dongle is entered along with your user name and password.

Amazing when the virtual world is becoming more secure than a lot of the real world. Or maybe that was just inevitable.
