[Ubisoft] Ubisoft hacked, account info accessed - Page 5

post #41 of 46
Something you know, something you have, something you are.

Multi-factor authentication. Rather then use two of something you know it would be best to use something you know and something you have.
Unfortunately it is not cost effective to implement anything beyond something you know as this requires devices such as biometric scanners which steam will never implement or require the end user to do. The majority of security safeguards fall on the server side of things with network admin.

As for the biggest threat to security CynicalUnicorn, that would be USERS.

All it takes for a virus to compromise a network is a user bringing a flash drive from home to work, or clicking on an email redirect, or giving out passwords in a phishing email attack. Then their are social engineering attacks, etc.
