Blizzard Authenticators May Become Mandatory 248

An anonymous reader writes " is reporting that a trusted source has informed them that Blizzard is giving serious consideration to making authenticators mandatory on all World of Warcraft accounts. The authenticators function the same as ones provided by most banks — in order to log in, you must generate a number on the external device. Blizzard already provides a free iPhone app that functions as an authenticator. The source stated, 'it is a virtually forgone conclusion that it will happen.' This comes after large spates of compromised accounts left Bizzard game masters severely backlogged by restoration requests."

Yeah, I agree completely. As a developer, I also have to manage deployments to the point of where I have administration rights on all of staging, and then during deployments I have admin rights on production also. to caveat it all, some developers the company has hired has no idea beyond the language they were hired to do; so for them to have admin rights has been a detriment to our tech team requiring rebuilds of their laptops several times

I am not sure what type of tests you are talking about, If you are talking about the ones that are like 30 questions multiple choice etc... I agree it's crap. However when I interview people for positions similar to mine I ask simple questions like, how would you write a function to solve the area of a circle. joel on software in my opinion is a gread read for this type of thing
