I guess the big deal is its Sarah Palin .. Not your sister Yevette's account. (If somehow i guess your sisters name its pure coincidence)
Who btw (If she existed) has probably been hacked 100's of times.
I ran a torrent site for quite a while . We have to stay kinda secure obviously .
I would run the MD5 of the word "Password" Through the DB and ban all the accounts with that as a match to the PW field.
Out of 12000 accounts On average every few months (say 4) It would delete 3000 or so accounts.
The best answer would be a page full of faces . Say 30. And you have to pick the 3 that you were shown during signup and match their names to them .
So you have to pick the 3 and enter their names.
But we will probably not see that for quite some time . :/
The best thing to maybe happen from this is better security awareness for email passwords ect.. Now the people know if this could happen to her it
can happen to them .
Maybe they will wake up a little . Who knows.
