How Secure is Your Password?

I’ve written previously about credit card skimmers and more recently about weak passwords.

Now even “secure” passwords can be quickly cracked by a skilled hacker. This article explains how three hackers got 90% success rate on 16,000 passwords.

It’s still a very good idea to use the strongest passwords you can.  And, refrain from using the same password more than once.  It’s a good idea to use a password manager.  Two popular managers are LastPass and Roboform.
