I didn't think that this belonged in the Weiner Gate Politics area so I put it here. A co-worker sent me this article yesterday on internet security and how easy it is to hack passwords.

"Think that your eight-character password consisting of lowercase characters, uppercase characters and a sprinkling of numbers is strong enough to protect you from a brute force attack?

Think again!"

WoW- Hardly pays to  get a strong password, if someone wants it they will get it. Make the password to too strong and your likely to forget it yourself or  lose the paper you wrote the password on, or lock yourself out. That was intresting but it didn't really surprise me.

Shouldn't bother you though, two passwords to remember is small enough for anyone to manage.
