Marie Boran from The SiliconRepublic.com challenged me recently to steal her identity. I had to work within the following parameters;
- I could do nothing illegal
- I could only use information gleaned from online sources
- I could not contact or collaborate with any of her friends or colleagues.
So to this end our keyboards at dawn challenge began and I fired up Google to see what I could find out about Marie. Suffice it to say that after much searching and cross referencing I was able to gather enough information to build up a false identity in her name. The information I got included
- Her name
- Her date of birth
- Her father’s name
- Her Mother’s name
- Her home address
- Her education details
- Her professional details
- Personal information on what her likes and hobbies were and also what blusher she likes to wear.
Marie has provided a write up of the challenge on The SiliconRepublic.com.
For those of you outside of Ireland would the above information be enough to steal the identity of someone in your country?
