Watch as people are tricked into giving up their passwords

Watch the first person that appears on the video below. She says that her password consists of her dog's name and the year she graduated high school. That might be safe enough, especially since the world knows nothing about this woman. But watch how fast she gives away the pertinent information when asked questions related to her password.
Others also seem to give away the components of their password without a second thought. Even those who are taken aback at first, end up giving in to the easygoing questioning of the girl behind the microphone and the excitement of being on television. Take a gander and promise yourself that you won't give in if similarly grilled.

Lol I know, was laughing a lot too. And only one of them realized he gave his password. A lot of hacking is done by social engineering and people fall for it.

I really wish I was there to watch the woman's reaction after hearing me saying "Upper and lower case Russian-Latin combination with text codes and a number sequence." But yeah... password 123? Seriously? That's so dumb I can't even believe it.
