Longer, more complex passwords needed

Post by mbrazil » Tue Feb 19, 2013 5:13 am

In 2013 more than 90 percent of user-generated passwords, even those considered strong by IT departments, will be vulnerable to hacking.

Yup thats the nature of the game i hope for me .What i used to do in the 90's does not come back to bite me lets just say i HAD to change my passwords every week it's good to change them often i think thats better than makeing one long one and just leaving it there.So thats my opinion ofcoarse. 8)

Making them long and complex is good, and changing them often is good too. It's just a PITA.
