Identity theft is perhaps the most concerning kind of Cybercrime nowadays. The most concerning aspect of identity theft is that once you are a victim it is hard to get rid of the consequences. Although as developers we are probably well aware of the risks towards cybercrime and identity theft in particular, in many parts we as developers play a big role in making identity theft happen. It is not only about how secure is your program, but how aware are you? Or better said how naive are we in practice as developers in this big bad world.
