Yahoo Finance via CNN Money.Com: The number one way hackers get into protected systems isn't through a fancy technical exploit. It's by guessing the password.
By this point in the game, people who are this stupid deserve to be hacked.
i managed to log into a workmates PC with a guess, lazy head used his first name as the user and his last as the password
usually when dumb people are hacked it causes a ripple effect that can cause us problems in the future
Hackers are good in playing mind games, so the password should be set such that is hard to guess and doesn't relate to you. This will probably make harder for hackers to crack the password.
Passwords should have Capital letters and spaces. Adding numbers or letters doesn't make it all to harder, but spaces and capital letters make it much harder to be exposed due to a password.
I agree with you and the most secure passwords are things that don't relate to you like I would like 3 Apple Please or the Red racing car ect. But I work in IT and the amount of users I have spoken too and asked for there password and they have said Password01 its shocking for some of the company's we support.
Sounds like you need to implement a better password policy to prevent them from using this password.
I would agree with you here but it is not our job to do this as we are 3rd party support and we have told the md's ect that they need to look at changing it but they dont want us too so its there own fault if something happens.
Phew, Scared me for a second...My TechSpy login info is: Syko Password2 I agree people that use Password1 are stupid and deserve to get Haxzor.... =)
BTW if you tried to enter that login info... YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY POWAH!!! *Evil Laughing*
you have deflected many hacking attempts with that one sir. the 2 provides awesome high level encryption. no one could guess that.
My login info is Racer-X 123456 that has to be secure...right?
Im safe i just use Pass123
Ah yes, I see you combined numbers and letters..killer combination...they'd never figure it out.
Never in a million years its to hard to crack that bad boy ;)
Nobody ever gets my "PASSWORD" or my pets name I have 20 pics tagged of on Facebook. Heres a hint though its four numbers and rhymes with my smirth bate lmao!
If you're using that as your password, don't change it. You deserve to suffer the repercussions.
personally if you run something like a server and it has tons of user info. and the master password is 98765 that should equal jail time.
Firefox is always on your side... http://support.mozilla.org/...
Its very funny but good for those who have unsecured password . Hacker me try different app available such as all the dictionary words . So beware of hacker and be safe .
I prefer random references for my security. Like Yahoo...for some reason I use Yahoomilk as my password.....lol.. serious people have to get a real understanding about whats going on.
What I can't stand is when certain websites limit my password to 5-8 characters. My bank had that limit for far too long and they just changed it.
Ah sh!t, my password is "password1" bu bu bu but wait, I can't change it anymore!, why?.. Oh wait, I get now, my real password is "Screwyoua$$holes!1234567 89000000" Ah, thankfully.
There's something awfully familiar about this. http://www.youtube.com/watc... I love that movie. =)
The President of Syria's private email password was 12345. No joke.
Shacksss!, why did you reveal it here?. remove it lol
I remember that story a few months ago lol. Sites are getting better at making you choose stronger pass words, but by the time your done you cant remember it and have to write down. Which by the way is just as bad as 1234 and password1
but really in all honesty any tech geek knew what a proper password was when we were 12.
