Despre folosirea parolelor

Dacă una dintre parolele tale este “123456”, “abc123” sau “parola”, atunci ai face bine să o schimbi 🙂
Un articol interesant din NY Times: Simple Passwords Remain Popular, Despite Risk of Hacking –

[…] nearly 1 percent of the 32 million people had used “123456” as a password. The second-most-popular password was “12345.” Others in the top 20 included “qwerty,” “abc123” and “princess.”

More disturbing, said Mr. Shulman, was that about 20 percent of people on the RockYou list picked from the same, relatively small pool of 5,000 passwords.

That suggests that hackers could easily break into many accounts just by trying the most common passwords. Because of the prevalence of fast computers and speedy networks, hackers can fire off thousands of password guesses per minute.
