Social Security Numbers Can Be Guessed


Recommended Posts

Washington Post article

I found their concern about uses of the last four of your SSN most interesting. The last 4 digits are the most unique to an individual. Anyone that has been in the service sense about 1969 when DoD switched from the old 8 digit service number to SSN has their last four stamped on all their tidy-whiteties and everything else they owned.

I always figured if I got caught in East Germany I would never see the light of day because of the "secret messages" I was carrying; I had the last 4 of my service number and the last 4 of my SSN written on the inside of boots. :ph34r:
