Title: Damn MySpace hackers!
Post by: lena on December 20, 2007, 09:32:46 AM
Hey, everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know that if you're on my MySpace friends list, you are going to find a nice little bulletin from "me" about how I am apparently a "Nawty Babe", who wants to "Hook-Up". (yeesh).....

Gee - I thought you'd be cutting back on all that now that you're married.
Ahhh you crazy free-lovin' Americans!

You'd think 6 or 8 character passwords would be hard to guess, but especially when they're all lower-case letters, they're surprisingly easy to hack.  You can make your public site passwords literally millions of times harder to hack by including a variety of upper & lower case characters, numbers, and punctuation characters.

A password like "nighttrain" can be guessed fairly easily by these password-hacking programs with a couple of hours of random guessing attempts, but a password like "3-gN4u_V" might take (literally) more like 50 years of random guessing attempts.

I'm in the process of trying to make all my public passwords more complex, though it's a pain in the ass to remember them and keep them straight.

WTF... Griff, you, you... of all the guesses in the world, how did you know?  Gotta run, I've got some accounts I need to change if you know what I mean. ::) ;D
