RSA SecurID Do Over

Ned here. If you are using RSA SecurID, you’re probably aware they were compromised several months ago. You may also have heard that since then, hackers have been using that stolen info to attack or compromise various organizations. What you may not know is RSA is now issuing replacement tokens for their customers. The catch is you need to contact them; they are not necessarily going to contact you. More info from their executive chairman here:

U.S.:
1-800-782-4362, Option #5 for RSA, Option #1 for the RSA SecurID Remediation Program
 
Canada:
1-800-543-4782, Option #5 for RSA, Option #1 for the RSA SecurID Remediation Program
 
International:
+1-508-497-7901, Option #5 for RSA, Option #1 for RSA SecurID Remediation Program

None of this is directly AD or Microsoft-related, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t spread the word – RSA has a large customer base. That said, if you’re interested in alternatives, here’s some reading on understanding and deploying two-factor smartcard authentication:
