    There are atleast three ways this password could have been found. a) My brother lives in the town where these passwords were leaked, and he said that their office use unencrypted WLAN. b) The guy who presumably leaked it is in the office right next to the guy called 'Sigge'. c) As the article thinks: The password was very easy to crack. The latest rumour is that the guy who leaked the password (the left party) had a homosexual affair with the guy who *used* the password (the right party).

    They're politicians, not security experts. I hear about this sort of problem all the time... in my own workplace, we talk about the people on the 3rd floor with their one-character passwords and machines that are hacked into on a daily basis.

      We're not talking about some small 3 person company here. We're talking a (by swedish standards) large and established political party organisation.

      If I was made responsible for running that net/service I'd ask for a security policy established by management and make sure that we followed up on it's use.

      The damage that can be inflicted on an organisation like this by one single idiot with access to that net is massive.

      If the admin is the only tech savvy enough to understand those issues then it's his or hers frikken obligation to take that issue up with management and explain what could happen.

      But should also note in this issue that gaining unathorized access to a private network is illegal, no matter how this access was achieved.

      It should be quite obvious to any of the people involved that accessing data from a rival party's internal network is a criminal offence. // hdw

      In the end of course, the system administrator is going to catch heat for not having a strong password policy. Even though he/she would've caught hell if there had been one implemented in the first place.

      This is where the sysadmin has to figure out how to make a convincing argument that the suits will understand. If he thinks a strong password policy is important, that is.

      Suits aren't security experts, and they don't need to be. In fact, they're not necessarily experts in everything/anything. That's where the sysadmin needs to learn the same skills that everyone else uses to influence them. Make a case, with pros and cons, costs and benefits and make a proposal. It doesn't have to be extensive. I just has to have the information needed to make a decision.

      Then, let them make the decision. If they say "yes", then you have their backing when enforcing an unpopular policy - and they're already in the know when people complain. If they say "no"... well, you've covered your backside, or if you really believe it in, you need to make a more convincing case.

      It's not black magic... but so many IT folks are either unable or unwilling to talk to non-IT decision-makers in a way that gets them to make favorable decisions. It's an important skill.
      • I recommend instead of trying to make the case yourself, hire an independent firm to review the IT security and controls you are using. A CPA firm's IT consultants/auditors lend a bit more weight -- deserved or not-- than straight-up tech consultancies.

    This is all too common in many places. One company I worked for, about.. 1/3 to 1/2 of the users used some form of their name, and a number incrementation. I freaked out one who was *-18 asking him.. "so, you've been here a year and a half?" He had no idea how I did the math on that one.

    Eventually, we put in place a very, very restrictive password policy. No incrementing numbers, no password similar to last month's password, etc. You wouldn't believe the riots in the streets. But, we held firm, and eventually, the noise died down, and everyone finally is using more secure passwords.

      Can't remember where I read it (prolly /.), but there was an article that gave a very convincing argument to the effect that changing your password every month is totally without benefit. It's a common-rule-of-thumb kind of practice that has been handed down from admin to admin for years, probaby from early Unix days, and doesn't have any useful purpose anymore.

      Incremental-number passwords are an inevitable side-effect of this sort of policy and, even where password policy is more carefully implemented, the fact that average-joe users have to change it monthly anyway is a chore that WILL lead to short-cuts and, ultimately, weak passwords (or rather, associative passwords that are easy to infer after a little observation).

      Try just having a very strict policy on passwords, and scrapping the regular-change part of it. People can be imaginative and obscure once, but ask them to do it regularly and they get sloppy.

      • If a password gets written down, buried in a pile of paper, and thrown into the dumpster six months later, then regular password changing will prevent a breach. It will also cover up the real problem.

        If an employee leaves and goes crazy later, and if you didn't change all his passwords when he left, then a regular change policy will avoid one problem. Of course it's more likely that a problem employee will strike back immediately. Or will have planted back doors before leaving.

      I worked as a contractor for the Air Force for a while. They had a real strong policy in place on the Windows domain with the appropriate DLLs that would disallow "weak" passwords. Weak passwords being anything less than six letters; must have three of: upper case, lower case, numbers, symbols; must be substantially different than previous passwords; must not include words in it. Except that their dictionary includes two and three letter words. So you could have a password such as '1xIf%at$3' and it would be invalid since it has two two-letter words 'if' and 'at'. When deciding to implement draconian enforcement of your policies make sure your enforcement processes aren't stupid.

      ie

        * has to have special chars

        1. Call the IT desk
        2. Ask them to reset my password
        3. They Email me my password.
        4. I login

      When the password is reset there is no Idenification of me.
      They simply assume that access to my work email is valid enough

      By Increasing the level of security They have effectivly reduced the level of security to that of a seperate system (company email).

    Here is the real question.. Is it a USER problem or an ADMINISTRATOR problem. Sounds like they need to hire a new IT director with a since of security. If that IT director allows passwords like that he probably also is running a firewall hosted in a Windows XP Pro machine and ICS and no service packs or hot fixes. All of the internal IP addresses are 192.168.x.x because of ICS so I'm sure the server is .1. Heck, the director might have even turned on Remote Desktop Administration on the box so he could manage it from home without a VPN and the administrator accounts password on that box is either blank, password, or god.

    You know, in my department we've found that a great way to introduce users to more complicated passwords is to introduce them as keyboard pattern passwords.

    Of course we have complexity requirements, but it's amazing how a user can find a way to simplify a complexity requirement. Think a user unknowledgeable, but never think a user unclever - I always say...well, actually that's the first time I've said that...back to my point.

    While these patterned passwords may not be as hard to crack as truly random passwords, they are at least non-semantic.

    for example 1al02sk93dj8 - I imagine this password is probably pretty common, but if it were scrawled on a stickynote on someones monitor it would discourage causual account browsing by a coworker.

    Does anyone know if brute-force methods take into account keyboard patterning?

    by the way 1al02sk93dj8 is not my accounts password - so don't even think about trying it! ;)
    • I wonder how common it is for a user to have something like "1al02sk93dj8" written on a postit on their monitor, when in fact all they have to remember about their password is that the 'sk' in the middle is really a 'RD' making their real password "1a102RD93dj8"

      This would (I imagine) wind up being significantly more secure to outside attacks (those who can't see the postit) while still being moderately secure to inside attacks (joe shmo trying to login on his console)....

        The fact that you can brute force an account at all is not an indicator that strong passwords are needed.

The determining factor for how strong the password needs to be is whether the account is disabled for a few minutes or requires an administrator to unlock it.

    Many of us swedes thinks this was a planned event where the login was "leaked" to the opposition by purpouse. The swedish social democrats would probably stop at nothing to keep in power. The person who did the breakin (Per Jodenius) was a former Social Democrat. This person is from the same town (Växjö) and local Social Democrat Youth member in the same circuit as the journalist ( Fredrik Sjöshult )who blowed the whistle. The fact that this happened just hours after the leading party (from the polls) had his turn in the national TV is to much for it to be a coincidense.

    Ugly indee and not very democratic.

    Its like, if you hassled a country for not being democratic and then imposed sanctions on them for choosing the wrong people in the votings....oh, wait..

    I've been put under some pretty inane password policies in my (limited) years on this planet. Names in reverse, 1337-variations on password, numerical addendums to dictionary words, just plain dictonary words ("nochance" was popular at one place I frequented).. Oh, and I heard from a friend who worked at Radioshack that most of the important passwords were something very, very, VERY easy. I'll leave you to figure it out.

    You know what I have been recommending recently as a password policy? Fake inventory ID tags. Put a fake inventory ID tag on each device (keyboard, mouse, monitor, tower), with a portion of the ID on one of the items at each station being the actual password. Set a login attempt limiter, which will discourage trial and error. Not only do you need physical access, you need to know the general policy to discover the password from the "inventory tags". Heck, it could just be 8 letters out of a 24-character alphanumeric. Too bad it got shot down for something "simpler" the last place I suggested it to.. ugh.

    Everything began in Skövde [Swedish city]

    In the eye of the storm is social democrat Stig-Olof Friberg. His password was the key to the FP-scandal: [FP = Folkpartiet, the "cracker party"]

    "I'm enraged. Tough election tactics are ok, but they must be fair".

    • "Worst of it all is that this increases disenchantment with politicians. It's an attack on democracy".

      The evening sun throws long shadows over the pink facade of the FP in the center of Skövde. It's half past five, and the atmosphere in the office is lättsam[??], despite the circumstances. A quickly called meeting with the [local?] workgroup is just about to begin as Göteborg-Posten [article is in this paper] tells the news that Niki Westerberg has been charged[?] with a crime.

  • Seasoned Slashdot readers would call it "a-not-so-hard-to-crack-password"

    Is that the technical term?
  • From Glorious [eddieizzard.com]...

    "Oh. Password protected. Billion possible chances."

    "Er..."

    "Jeff."

    "Hey!"

    "How did you know it would be Jeff?"

    "I knew there'd be a back door."

    In films, the guy who made the software has always left a back door,

    so he could get back in when he wanted and look at all the missiles and go, "Ooh".

    And put one on his head.

    "And the guy who made the software was called Jeff Jeffety Jeff, born on the first of Jeff, Nineteen-Jeffety-Jeff."

    "So I put in Jeff and hey."

  • It may not be obvious to non-Swedes, so FYI "sigge" is a common nickname for Sixten -- his forename.

    ... i wouldnt even attempt to crack it ...

    But then again, that would make it a password that is not so not-so-hard-to-crack-password ...
