Password Insanity (by Jeremy Zawodny)

Password Insanity

When I read this blog post I almost laughed out loud. Or would have if it wasn't sadly becoming the standard.

The worst part as a commenter mentioned is that passwords have become so complex, and we are required to have so many, that most folks have taken to writing them down or using very simple passwords, such as MyTimmy.1 or some such.

Not that I'm sure a crack program would fair any better against MyTimmy.1 than say *234,8jdf3 but your local security director might disagree.

Me, I'd use Security.password.1 and see if anyone notices. :)
