Identity problem

A note in December’s which magazine (which I can highly recommend)


Americans happily give away security details, shows research RSA Security.

70% told researchers their mother’s maiden name, and 55% revealed how they think up passwords.

I’m sure the figures would be very similar in the UK.

What baffles me is that despite all the amazing leaps and bounds in technology we’re still not able to come up with something more secure than our mother’s maiden name!
