I just wanted to see how many times the article wrote out "PIN number/numbers." And the answer is six.

Was disappointed that they never wrote out "ATM machine," though. Oh well. Next time.

I can't wait for the next useless bit of research by these jokers:

Useless trivia - there is a government office that I occasionally visit (as a contractor) with a numeric key pad for entry. The numbers are displayed on the keypad, they are randomly scrambled for each entry (so no muscle memory of your entry code), and the keypad is covered in such a way that even someone behind you can't really see your hand. And if someone is actually too close behind you they get barked at over the intercom and large men with guns appear. Or men with large guns. I've seen it go both ways.

Don't you mean "Artificial AI", "PIN number", and "ATM machine", subby?

That's why you don't go ATM

Scientist 1: *hits blunt* if you could program a computer to commit a crime, what crime would it be?

Scientist 2: *takes shot of whisky* machine learn how to steal money, of course. A few cents at a time, from every account at the bank.

Scientist 1: The Superman 3 plot?
Scientist 2: Yup. The Superman 3 plot.

Director: HEY!! GET BACK TO WORK. That monkey isn't going to stab itself!

Shield your hands and also pretend to hit other numbers. My pin appears to be like 9 digits long.

Social engineering isn't even always a necessary adjunct to more sophisticated AI-based attacks, since 1234 has been estimated to represent 11% of all pins, while 19 (as the first part of a birth year) represents the first two numbers in over 80% of PIN numbers.

Wow people are idiots. I mean, I usually assume that, but it's spectacular to see in numbers like this.

This implies people use their birthday or the birthday of a loved one for 80% of PINs ... Are you farking serious?

When 1111 or 4321 is better than 91% of PINs, there's a problem.
