    It's highly secure as long as one always uses and maintains the security features of Time Capsule and the computer. Hopefully one never operates an unprotected network and never agrees to use less secure than minimum 128 bytes encryption.

    Even with no security, account numbers floating around cyberspace by themselves with no other relevant information are meaningless, so don't worry about them. Just worry about protecting your own numbers. With two guesses you will guess a valid account number. Question is.....for who? for what? attached to which address? and what is the verification number?
