    I wouldn't put all of the blame on users. Some of the hacks worked by socially engineering the customer service reps. I've read of one breach where the hacker got the CSR to take control of a target account, even though he failed to even answer the security question correctly. S/he was quite convincing and managed to get the CSR's sympathy. My security questions' answers are random gibberish, and just as secure as the password in the first place. Yet I know that a determined social engineer could fool a CSR to bypass it.
