Comment: Passwords are sometimes unimportant (Score 1) 340

by Smid (#36809272) Attached to: The Science of Password Selection

This sort of thing is often ignored by people wanting to analyse passwords

Some people don't care about the account being secure. Its not important. Sure, I want a secure password on my bank account, my email account, but for a whole bunch of forums I've posted on once, I just use a standard simple password. You can hack it. Pretend to be me. Get banned. It doesn't matter to me.

Complicated passwords are by their nature insecure, without photographic memory, the hundred and fifty passwords I have would be unmanageable without password weakness and repetition. I'd have to write them down if every one was strong and different, and that in itself is the biggest password weakness...

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
