The questions are secure enough..they are not a wasted security step..if anything you should be calling them second, third and even in some cases fourth passwords. Is that what you wanted to hear ?
And this is about Apple since they just bypassed that whole process and gave up the farm for Mat. I call blogs and posting like the OP found nothing but copycat blog.
Apple, like Microsoft when they started, cared bugger all for Security and so now at this midnight hour they start to put safe guard in place and it is too late.. it is not working, it is confessing their users and owners of their products...and their is more problems with even the owners getting locked out of their own account as they play the catch up game that Apple is playing. I read the Title..it is the same stupid title used by the person who blogged the stuff and nothing to do with antdude.
It is a weak title this week for the info at the link.
Interesting to note one of the other people at the link antdude posted claimed..

Hell I did it with Blizzard for what, $30 and I got a plush toy.
This has always bothered me. My Blizzard and SWTOR accounts have much stronger authentication (from a user perspective; not sure about the underlying technical security measures) schemes than my bank account. My bank only allows a maximum of 14 characters in a password and severely limits you on what special characters you can use. They also have no form of secondary authentication, such as Blizzard's Battle.net Authenticator. Finally, their security questions are a joke, all along the lines of those mentioned in TFS--"What is your mother's maiden name" and the like.
and Blizzard was just hacked...so it is never safe out there..no matter what steps a user takes..
