Re: Missing the point

NAB bank password used to be only 8 chars long, but they didn't mention this and the input field would accept longer than 8 characters. It simply discarded anything after the 8th.

They only needed to fess up when they finally changed their system to be more secure and allow longer passwords. They then had to advise that anyone previously using a password longer than 8 chars, should only put the first 8 in or it would be rejected.
