Can you post me the link to it?

It popped up on my twitter feed suggesting I should follow you a few days ago, the suggestions change so if it suggest you again I will take a grab of the profile...it popped up as you apparently follow A.com's twitter....maybe you can find it by looking through their followers.

I wasn't aware that A.com has a twitter account or that I follow A.com's twitter or anybody else's twitter.
Generally I don't use social media as I'm not convinved they are totally secure.
I take security very seriously. Hence my 10/10 score.

You take your security seriously yet you broadcast your photograph, location, full name etc all in an open Forum??? Great start for anyone wishing to do some dodgy activity

9 out of 10 - I wasn't sure what the group of hackers was called ;-)

Mark, When you put that in context with the results from the 1055 people who took part in the survey your result scored you BETTER than 91% of the public putting you in a very select group of 7% who got the same score.....interestingly out of all the 1055 people who participated only 1% got a perfect score

8/10 but one answer was in all honesty a lucky guess so a more realistic 7/10

2 of the questions asked for the " name" of a particular activity. Not knowing the " official" terminology is not the same as being unaware of the threat. The quiz is therefore a little unrealistic but nevertheless very interesting.

All very interesting, but I didn't complete it because I thought that it was probably Spam, Spoof ,Phishing etc. :lol:

The last time that I completed an online quiz for months after I was bombarded with offers of Ukranian Wives and Cheap Sunglasses. :shock:

All a bit racist if you ask me, why always Ukranian or Philipino? I seldom get offered one's from Wigan or Birkenhead :mrgreen:
