Some friends and I were having a good laugh at our "Pornstar names" recently. Taken from an email that made the rounds with instructions and the obligatory request to add yours on the list and send to all your friends. Here's how it works:
- Take the name of your first pet as your pornstar first name.
- Add your mother's maiden name as your porn last name.
Only much later did it strike me; Is this really an innocent joke? Something about the questions seems very familiar. In fact, two of the most frequently used security questions on many websites are:
- What is your first pets name?
- What is your mother's maiden name?
What could be more convenient for the proficient phisher than list of email addresses tied to no less than two ways to retrieve a forgotten password..
