   The epilogue in Brian Krebs' "Spam Nation" includes the URL
<http://www.twofactorauth.org/>. That site lists many web sites by category
and shows whether they support two-factor authorization.

   If sites on which you have an account support this extra layer of security
you can click on the 'doc' icon and learn how to turn on two factor
authorization. If sites on which you have an account do not support 2fa, and
you have a twitter account, you can tweet them encouragement to add that
capability.

   If you value your identity, personal information, finances, and other good
stuff it's worth the extra step to log in to these sites. 2fa makes it much
more difficult for cybercriminals to highjack your personal or financial
information.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Rich
