Is more simple bank web security better?

I have noticed that there seems to be a split between some banks/financial institutions who maintain complex security around their on-line account access and others who seem to have actively migrated towards a much simpler approach. Is there any evidence that the "simple" approach is either more or less secure than the "complex" one? [more inside]

Can I legally log into an employees webmail if they left their password on a company computer?

Say I have an employee who was using a company computer. They departed under bad terms. I suspect that they took proprietary and valuable company documents with them when they left by sending them to themselves or someone else using a webmail service. If I can recover their webmail password from the company computer they were assigned, is it legal for me to log in and check to see if they did this? Why or why not? [more inside]

Why are the numbers 2, 3 and 4 worn out on a local gas station's ATM card keypad?

Tonight I was paying at a gas station and I used the keypad to enter my pin. The numbers 2, 3 and 4 showed tremendous wear compared to all other keys except the enter key. It's the kind of stupid odd trivia that appeals to me. I Googled "common pin numbers" and it seems "123" is pretty common among the unimaginative. But that doesn't explain 2, 3 and 4 being so well-worn, and not 1. Can you?

Why a two-step login?

Why are many financial institutions moving to a two-step login process, where you enter your username on one page and then your password on the next? For instance, Vanguard and ING. Their rationale is just that it's "more secure", but that's not much of a reason.

Is it possible to bypass a bios password without me knowing? How safe is my data?

I have a desktop that is located in a semi-public place. I have a bios password and a windows password on it. Sometimes I leave it logged out of windows so that I can leave in the middle of a project without restarting everything again. I was wondering how hard it would be to get my data? Short of stealing the actual hardware, is there a way to get past a bios password and access my data without me knowing? (From what I understand, resetting the cmos would clear the password so I would know if someone got in.) Also, is it possible to get in if I leave it logged out of windows with a password? How safe is my data?

I forgot the password for my USB thumbdrive!

Is there anyway I can still access the files on it? If that's not possible, can the drive be still made usable, by reformatting it in some fashion? Or will I just have to get a new one and dumb this one into the garbage can?
