Last week, KrebsOnSecurity received an email from eBay. The company wanted me to switch from using a hardware key fob when logging into eBay to receiving a one-time code sent via text message. I found it remarkable that eBay, which at one time was well ahead of most e-commerce companies in providing more robust online authentication options, is now essentially trying to downgrade my login experience to a less-secure option.

Jobs site Indeed: Full stack developer is best career; machine learning engineers earn more
Citing concerns over criminal activity and fraud, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has disabled an automated tool on its Web site that was used to help students and their families apply for federal financial aid. The removal of the tool has created unexpected hurdles for many families hoping to qualify for financial aid, but the action also eliminated a key source of data that fraudsters could use to conduct tax refund fraud.Last week, the IRS and the Department of Education said in a joint statement that they were temporarily shutting down the IRS's Data Retrieval Tool. The service was designed to make it easier to complete the Education Department's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) -- a lengthy form that serves as the starting point for students seeking federal financial assistance to pay for college or career school.
