As part of on boarding my new job the IAT was mentioned. And then when I attended some social engineering talks at DefCon a few weeks ago a comment was made that in order to be a good social engineer you also need to know yourself.
A couple of months before I left my previous job I received a suspicious email - apparently I've received a fax and it was inside a linked PDF. I was a little bit surprised when I looked into what this really was about.
So it has been a long time since I encountered a user interface that make stupid assumptions about their users but a few weeks ago my bank managed to do so.
November 2008 had a lot of fun reads and I had a great time going over all those old post. But a few things stood out apart from the $1,000 I apparently spent on fraud prevention fees for US visas.
