Account Security Alert!

Post by Librarian » Sat Jan 01, 2011 10:51 am

Somebody is trying to break into my account. Fortunately, I use a very lengthy, complex password.

Please make sure you follow good password practices.

Not surprised, when I wet to log in yesterday, it said too many attempts had been made and had me use the captcha. I've also cleared out some spam bot posts the last couple of days as well. Next spam and script kiddie wave, incoming, lol.

I think I'm going to spend the beginning of the new year upgrading all of my passwords to industrial strength. So what's your favorite password manager, if you even use one? I'm currently using 1Password: http://agile.ws/onepassword/overview

1Password is supposed to be one of the best, but I don't use them. I just stick with passwords that can't be dictionary cracked and would take a few years to brute force.... Most of the time anyway, lol.

Pick two words Translate to Spanish then wash it through a bablefish translation to Russian and then back to English. Add a rotating series of numerics to the front back and middle and then fatfinger the whole mess on my ipone keyboard to see what my password will be. :lol:
