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.
