Just curious, what happens to a person's MtGox account if their yubikey is lost/stolen/broken/etc?  I'm assuming they would have to contact MtGox support and prove ownership of the account or something?  Has anyone had this happen?

Thats why its always good to have google authenticator also enabled for all the operations for which you need a Yubikey. Do it now.

What if someone doesn't use google at all?

Google Authenticator can be used fully offline, google doesn't control anything

If they've verified with MtGox in the past, if I remember correctly, they'll have to go through the same process to reclaim the account. That and/or they have to buy another Yubikey and have it sent to the same address as the last one. Either way, it's apparently a pain. (not that that is a bad thing)

I asked this question some time back and was told to give them the details of the last three trades I made with them and all would be good. Though I have not tried it.
