Hoe veilig is jouw wachtwoord?

03/28/2007 —

The man at One Man’s Blog explains how alarmingly easy it is to crack passwords and offers tips on choosing safer ones.

First, he breaks down the steps he’d take in cracking a password. That includes the simple act of guessing the top ten passwords (pet’s name, “1234,” date of birth, etc.) used by 20 percent of all users. If that doesn’t work, he’ll turn to a brute-force attack, which, as you can see in the table above, can get the job done in as little as 0.02 seconds. Bron: Lifehacker

Even stilstaan bij je rijtje wachtwoorden is dus niet onverstandig! Zeker als je bedenkt dat als ze in je e-mailbox kunnen komen de volgende stap waarschijnlijk je bankrekening is. Snel je wachtwoord controleren bij ‘Microsoft’s Password Strength Tester‘.
