Re: Secret Security Questions Are a Joke

I feel fairly safe since I didn't grow up in this country and am not famous, so the average hacker would have a hard time finding out where I went to 'high school', or even if I ever went to anything called a high school.

The only risk is that the pool of possible questions seems a little small, so the 'high school' question is apt to show up on multiple sites; it's therefore got the same risk factor as username-and-password reuse.
