[HCI-Sec] Pet Photos for Bank of America

Now here's an interesting idea. I wonder what kinds of attacks scammers will try on this...

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - What could make you feel more at ease than a picture of your dog, Scruffy?

Bank of America (Research) will require Internet clients to register their computers and assign a digital image, such as a photo of a pet, to their accounts in an effort to cut down on fraud, the bank announced.

The free service, called SiteKey, lets clients pick an image, write a brief phrase and select three challenge questions.

The image will appear on the site every time a customer has to enter a password.
