Passwords multiply as users’ rage rises: Passwords are essentially combination locks: The more complex the password, the tougher it is to crack. Yet security specialists describe groan-out-loud encounters with people who guilelessly use part of their Social Security number, their telephone number, a family name, a pet name or a street name as a password. Others use easily cracked sequential numbers such as “1234” or just the word “password.” Others write passwords on paper and stick them to their computers. Worse still, consultants say, are those who rely on a single password for everything. [This link appeared yesterday in my reading and I’ve now lost the attribution.]
