Re: Idiot password checkers
Well, yes, of course. I didn't specify what
/usr/share/dict/words on my machine contains, or exactly what
LANG is set to, and perhaps I should not do that.
I have found an interesting thing regarding this: encryption is not enough. Even looking too closely at the encrypted contents of the disk is enough to cause quite nasty things to happen to potential eavesdroppers. The results are usually fatal, and I imagine the eavesdroppers are glad of that, at least until their minds go.
