Seems like RSA had it severs hacked. There is a small Slash-Dot post about this, and also a press-release on RSA's web-site. The claim on Slash-Dot is that ...


"EMC subsidiary RSA was the victim of 'an extremely sophisticated cyber attack' which resulted in the possible theft of the two-factor code used by their SecurID products."


That could be a very big deal for anyone who uses RSA's "SecurID" line of "two-factor-authentication" (or "2FA") products - which are kind of the industry leader in that field.

Here are the links:

Open Letter to RSA Customers

Here's some information about 2FA, which is becoming a near-requirement in many security-senstive computer systems - which more and more is not just the Government and Banks, but any company dealing with confidential consumer data, etc.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
