Towards Stronger Password Management
Sound The Alarm
Recently, an old password of mine was leaked in a data dump. Two other sites I frequent use the same password — tsk tsk. I was fortunate enough to flag my stolen credit card number before any damage could be done, but some of my personal information was definitely downloaded. What degree of risk or personal harm that opens me up to is unclear.
Realizing that I had no excuse for poor security, I set about improving it.
