Some advice from Chief Unger:
I’ve noticed recently an increase of posts that ask for users to post comments.
The posts ask questions similar to the following:
What was your favorite teacher’s name?
Who was your first grade teacher?
Who was your childhood best friend?
What was your first car?
When you answer these questions you are providing answers to security questions commonly utilized by financial institutions and other organizations.

Hackers can utilize this information to build a profile.  They can then use this information to attempt to access your accounts or create accounts in your name.

I am not suggesting that all of these posts are created by hackers but the information posted can be accessed and utilized by a hacker.
I would recommend refraining from posting a comment on these posts.
