Natural selection I say. People smart enough to have good passwords are less likely to get hacked- they are not worth the effort as it would be easier to hack someone dumber.

Stupid Sheep. Alpha numberic, upper and lower case.

I have to suffer through phone calls from people who want my personal information everyday, just so I can conduct my business. This is because of people who steal identities from the idiot sheep who can't be troubled to remember not to use little Suzy's name as the password on your bank account.

You get what you deserve, and I have to pay for it. Wasted time on the phone giving information, and wasted money on the taxes I pay because of the laws that get passed, because you idiots can't come up with a more secure password.

Lazy stupid idiot sheep.

3. Never trust a 3rd party with your important passwords (webmail, banking, medical etc.)


I just used ninite to install apps after installing win7 last night. One of the apps to choose from was KeyPass. Would that be considered a "3rd party" I'm not supposed to trust or just a tool to store passwords that is better than a list in a wallet?

That is actually not a fact. Please do not put all Americans in the same pot as this teen beauty pagent participant. While I find it sad that the numbers were not 100%, they certainly were not what you are stating.

"Miss South Carolina Teen USA was asked recently why one in five Americans can't find the United States on a map. Unfortunately, that statistic is entirely inaccurate. According to the recent National Geographic-Roper Public Affairs 2006 Geographic Literacy Study, “Nearly all (94%) young Americans can find the United States on the world map, and Canada (92%) and Mexico (88%) are nearly as familiar.” The judges of Miss Teen USA should have gotten their facts straight! Only three in fifty Americans can't find the U.S. on a world map."

F@c3, W@1t, P0op, Bo08$, F@r7, P1@n0... Think of 4-5 letter words that have letters like I,L,A,E,S,T,G in it. After you have a good word you just add a suffix like "Facebook" or "Google" or "Gmail". This will ensure that you have a different password for all of your accounts that is easily guessable by you. If you adopt this model, the only folks you need to fear are the people who you are foolish enough to give your password to. If you have a password like this, your password wont be cracked with a dictionary attack, a much slower brute force will be needed to crack the password.

My laptop runs at 1.6Ghz and I have been able to test as many as 250,000 passwords per second on a Zip file. That means that the #1 passwd of 123456 would be cracked in less than one second.

A 8 character password with upper (26), lower (26), number (10), and special characters (10) should take about 80 years on my pansy laptop.

Take care of yourself.

You don't need a paranoid 30 random character password to be safe. 8 letters and a number or two make it practically impossible to brute force in a reasonable amount of time over the internet. Just try recovering a RAR password with more than 6 characters and it takes days to brute force with 100% cpu usage.

I agree. I use simplistic passwords for things that are unimportant and complex passwords for things like banking. I even use qwerty as a password for things that I share with other people. I don't know what rockyou.com really is as I just went there just now for only a second, but photosharing looks pretty unimportant to me.

The nature of the site needs to be considered when analyzing passwords. If a banking site had passwords released by accident I bet you'd get much different results.

For unimportant sites I use a single, simple password. Someone stealing my Tom's Hardware account would be annoying, but I'm pretty sure I could move on with my life...

For important things like banking or an MMO that I've invested hours of time in, etc. I use separate, more complex passwords. Difficulty=importance.

Keeps things easy to remember since I only have 4 or 5 passwords to remember at any given time. It's all in my head, so no random papers floating around either.

I also do the same thing with password-recovery. Your super complex password of mental destruction means nothing if I myspace your cat's name.
