Re: Don't Just Blame Users
I feel your pain. I remember setting one up on a bank a few years ago... It insisted I used between 6 and 8 characters. No caps, no numbers, no symbols and objected when I had too many letters repeated.
I kept meaning to sit down and calculate the number of passwords that would then be left as valid to their system.
It's probably about a dozen! j/k!
But it's good to see that p455w0rd1 isn't on the list, so I'm still safe!
There are a couple which have me mystified though. On the face of it they don't look "too" bad, I just can't work out the pattern that has made them so popular.
Can anyone enlighten me to the blatantly obvious pattern which has whooshed right over my head?
