Not sure why I never gave this much thought before, but after the Gov. Sarah Palin email hack, it makes perfect sense for everyone to create their own alter-ego, answering their favorite security questions (e.g. which high school did you attend?) with a bogus answer that you can remember.
And as ComputerWorld writes, it’s not just Yahoo! that’s vulnerable to these types of attacks.

You can also “obscure” the answers to your security question…a la http://lifehacker.com/5051905/how-to-protect-your-email-from-hackersBut you need to come up then with a method of obscuring! So maybe that makes things more complicated… 🙂
