Personal Information Online

I have recently read this article from The Sydney Morning Herald Blogs: MashUp. It is really amazing to note that people put a significant amount of personal detail online. The article also mentions that your mother's maiden name is often used in Internet Banking as a security question, and people do put it somewhere online. It is like keeping your PIN number next to your ATM card! I guess the lesson here is, whatever you put online, most of the time can be traced by criminals, so be careful! Think twice before hitting that "publish"/"submit" button.
