2013-07-31 09:27:52 AM  
My ATM PIN used to be the first four digits of the product of the first six prime numbers in Pi divided by Planck's constant, but thieves guessed that one too easily and I lost everything.  Now my PIN just spells the word "dick."
 
2013-07-31 09:28:24 AM  
Didn't think banks even allowed those as PINs. You might as well walk around with a pocketful of cash.
 
2013-07-31 09:28:43 AM  
If you have absolutely no knowledge, the best way to pick a PIN is to simply roll 4d10, picking beforehand which die will correspond to which number. The best way to attack that would be to systematically try every combination at once, but in a random order (which is, over time, the way most likely to require the smallest number of rolls). But banks know this, and can detect it, so I clearly cannot choose the wine in front of you.

But most people don't carry 4d10, or even 1d10. So they don't pick randomly (they might think they're picking randomly, but study after study has shown that the human brain really sucks at picking random numbers). Hackers know this, and so they look for popular PINs and, when those run out, they look for information about the person -birthdays and anniversaries, for example- and try them. It doesn't work all the time, but you'll defeat the cracking checks much more often than you would with the random-draw method, so I clearly cannot choose the wine in front of me.

But we also know this works, and so since hackers aren't using a truly-random approach, we don't have to either. We can narrow the number of PINs we use, retain almost all of the strength of randomness, while adding strength by specifically countering these attacks. Just make a list of the 10 or so most common PINs, then add your "personal PINs" (important birthdays and anniversaries, and also these dates spelled backwards). You'll probably have a list of 30-odd PINs by the time you're done with this. Then roll your 4d10, and in the unlikely event that a number on your list comes up, just re-roll. You're not going to exclude enough possible pins to reduce your PIN's entropy significantly -for a four digit PIN, you'd have to exclude some 500 PINs to reduce its entropy by even one bit- but you'll ensure that the "smart" crackers will have to go through at least as many attempts as your list is long before having any chance of finding your PIN, and the crack-detector will catch them before that. So I clearly cannot choose the wine in front of you.

But, of course, if this catches on, then the most common PINs will change. New lists will have to be drawn up: your important dates might not, but other popular PINs will. So if your PIN falls on the new list -not terribly likely, but it could happen- you'll have to change it. This is a pain, so I clearly cannot choose the wine in front of me.

Assume that at least one 4 digit PIN is safe to use because a thief would not casually try it. Then let N be the set of all such 4 digit PINs. Since N is nonempty it has a lowest element p. But then p is an obvious choice for a thief to try since it's the very first secure number! So p can't be a member of N and you should just continue using 1234 because everyone else is mathematically incompetent fools...

More than 10 when you dial international. My point stands - a longer pin number would still be trivial to remember, but much harder for bad guys to guess.

No, that doesn't work anymore.  Alizeran's just screwing with you.

It will work with debit card numbers and pins:

dittybopper: Want a random PIN?  Throw 4 10-sided dice, write down the number.


Now this idea I like.  I've been looking and looking for new and creative uses of my rather pricey gaming dice since I stopped gaming and now the only dice game I play is with 5d-6 only, that being 10K.  Maybe I should reset my PIN just for the heck of it.  Just cannot bring myself to get rid of my "weird" dice as the old man calls them.

sendtodave: Article isn't loading for me... Does it mention how every PIN and password in China must contain the number eight? Preferably all eights, if possible.

I think that's why so many hacking attempts come from here: half the country uses 88888888 as their password. makes for excellent zombies.


I believe 8 is considered a very lucky number in China?

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: 8008 spells "Boob"

Yes, I am back from the boob dimension and there was much to see, and many chairs made available to me free of charge upon my arrival. But I tire from my journey. You'll excuse me.
 
2013-07-31 03:51:04 PM  
Yes! My ATM pin of 4321 isn't on there!
 
2013-07-31 05:14:08 PM  
I like to use a PIN that would spell something on a telephone keypad.  For example 2273 spells "CARD"

Great Janitor: But here's the question, why worry about the PIN?  If you have someone's credit card or debit card, just head to the gas station, gas up your car (no PIN needed), go inside, buy a soda, get cash back at the maximum amount and go.


Hmm? I have to use my pin at all the gas stations here in Virginia. And if I try to use it as a credit card, it asks for my ZIP code instead.

They actually warn against that, as "Love" (5683) is one of the commonly used PINs (and phone passwords).

As long as it's not LOVE though yer probably alright. :)

But what about "fart" (3278) or "anus" (2687).  Do they warn against those?

Southern100: Great Janitor: nekom: rikkidoxx: After three attempts the ATM will lock and keep the card.

Some do, some don't.  Recently the PNC ATM's, at least in my area, take the card, you pick a language, then it gives the card back and THEN you put the PIN in.

The ones near me you just swipe.  But here's the question, why worry about the PIN?  If you have someone's credit card or debit card, just head to the gas station, gas up your car (no PIN needed), go inside, buy a soda, get cash back at the maximum amount and go.

That stocking mask is going to look awful suspicious at a gas station (not to mention your license plate number).. At a remote ATM though, not so much.


All the gas stations I use require a PIN if you're using a debit card, inside OR at the pump. If you're using it as a credit card at the pump, you have to input the zip code on the account's mailing address.

Ha! Mine's not on the list. Fooled them.  It's actually 3051.

I'm using the same pin issued with my very first atm card 20 years ago. No need to change.

Also, robbery is when they take the money from you after you withdraw it yourself and they pull a gun on you. Robbery is not guessing someone else's PIN code if you have their card.

fredbox: Also, robbery is when they take the money from you after you withdraw it yourself and they pull a gun on you. Robbery is not guessing someone else's PIN code if you have their card.


Correct, that's not just robbery, but robbery, wire fraud, grand theft, and federal felony bank robbery.

Russ1642: Didn't think banks even allowed those as PINs. You might as well walk around with a pocketful of cash.


My bank  assigned me one of those PINs on my ATM card.
