Pay Dirt

    Your Own Royal Wedding Security Breach?

    You may have seen a version of those viral royal name-change games doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter. They ask: “What’s your royal wedding guest name?”

    iStockphoto

    Internet security firm Sophos, which often goes over-the-top chronicling all manner of entertaining and colorful threats, has cautionary words for those of you who want to play. This potential breach to your personal security doesn’t come via a rogue third party who wants to steal your personal digits from your Sony PlayStation account, but from a well-meaning friend.

    “In honor of Britain’s royal wedding…” the game begins. It asks you to change your name to Lord/Lady, one of your grandparents’ first names and, lastly, asks for your first pet’s name and the street you grew up on for or a double-barreled surname. Sophos says it could be a boon for cyber thieves, especially if you use these names for passwords or security questions.

About Pay Dirt
