The best security is to not exist at all, because even before we are born we are worth something...

Saw that twitter reset his account and before he got the chance to re-sign up, someone else swooped up the name. How funny is that?

$50,000 twitter username. I don't know how much mine is worth. Anyone interested in buying mine. LMAO!

its a shame that guy actually had his godaddy and other webistes held hostage.its stealing and companies should have done something to resolve thst matter.

im not surprised some companies giving away personal information. a clueless staff will always give information away.

i've managed to get information from banks before without giving proper personal info. well it was for my account and my brothers, but getting full name, dob and address wrong and still able to get some information is downright scary.
