Notes & Transcripts

Google and computer scientists at Stanford University conducted a study of words used for security questions for online accounts found that many supposedly secure words are a lot less secure than people think. They found hackers could probably guess the answers with ease. For example, a hacker would have a 20% chance of guessing the right answer by answering “pizza” to the question “What’s your favorite food?” Given ten guesses would give an attacker a 21% chance of guessing a Spanish-speakers’ father’s middle name.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
