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?
