    My arms are falling off!

    Any site that puts a cap on password limits, particularly under 20 characters, will make me flip a shit.

    Any site that EMAILS MY PASSWORD TO ME is a sign the site is not storing passwords in a secure manner (protip: email isn't secure unless you take extra steps), and as such should not be trusted, at least with a password you use anywhere else.

    Then again, using the same password on any two services is bad practice, especially if one of those services is your online banking, email, or something else particularly important.

    Of course, your email password gets you into anything with an email-based password reset anyway...

    Y'know how some sites have password strength meters?  I like to mess with them a little by trying different combinations of letters.


    And inevitably, they disappoint me because I can figure out that all they're counting is the number of different types of characters.

    Seriously, though, tell me: would you more readily guess this password:


    or this password:


    Alternatively, which one would be easier to attack?

  • those are both terrible passwords

  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human

    I think I am going to call "p@$$w0rd" (or the associated "P@$$w0rd" for ones that require capital letters) the "password strength indicator strength indicator".

  • a little muffled

    I recall seeing an actually decent password strength meter somewhere, but I forget where now.

    Minimum 8 characters.
    Max 20 characters.
    Must contain a digit.
    Must contain mixed case letters (upper and lower case).
    Well, damnit, there goes my idea of using "a raucous caucus" as my password.  Or "huge iguana in bathrub".  Or "missive chalice".  Or "stick a finger in the institutional crossfire".  Or "tengu on a KFC bucket".  Or "flitting seethingly".  Or "as as as as cox cox cox cox".

    I guess "Your 9-Way Bastard Child" still works.  Maybe.

    Nope.  Too many characters.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    Our friends over at SekaiProject.com have a better password strength indicator.

    I tried my password strength indicator strength indicator on it.

    > enter p@$$w0rd

    > Very weak - Please enter a stronger password.

    Okay, I am satisfied.

    Also it seems to check whether your password is a chain of dictionary-lookupable words.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    8-16 characters
    At least 1 lowercase letter
    At least 1 uppercase letter
    At least 1 number

    So I have to choose a new password again.

    Let's just mock the questions this time:

    Question 1 (out of 10):  A strong password protects your computer. It is a complex set of characters that makes it difficult for someone to steal or guess.  Which one of the following is a strong password a password you can't freaking remember for the life of you:

    * My dog's name

    Question 2 (out of 10): TRUE or FALSE:  The University’s Responsible Use of Computing policy (#1301) addresses the action of trying to use someone else's account pretend to be a competent POTUS while named Donald J. Trump.

    Question 3 (out of 10): A security risk is software that appears to perform desirable functions, but in fact, steals information or harms your computer. If you have priviledges, where you can load programs on your computer, you have to be extra cautious.  It is important to know the source of a program before you install it because:
    * It has to be made in the last year epoch.
    * It has to come from a friendly country Russia, with love.
    * It has to come from a source you know about, rather than from a strange or unknown site your good ol' friend Vladimir Putin.
    * It has to have pictures of your ex-wife.

    Question 4 (out of 10): Phishing is a way of acquiring your sensitive information electronically by trying to look like it is from a trusted source or well known company. Which of these is an example of phishing?
    * A "no action required" communication from a reliable source.
    * An e-mail or pop-up from "Your IT Help Desk Office" "Definitely Not Satan" asking for personal account information first-born child's soul.
    * A reminder to complete your time sheet.
    * A web site for a seafood restaurant.

    Question 5 (out of 10): A phishing scam will employ deceptive means to obtain your sensitive information.  If you respond to a phishing attack, you could be opening the door to:
    * Viruses (like malware) that will infect my computer Asbetos and mercury
    * Substantial financial loss Pink elephants
    * Credit damage That one guy who lives next door and won't ever shut up about his pet political issue
    * All of the above

    Question 6 (out of 10): Of the following choices, which indicates when it is safe to open a file attached to an e-mail?
    * When I know the sender, the attachment is expected, and it is not unusual in any way except for the fact that a bouquet of flowers has materialized on your desk upon reading the e-mail.
    * When the strange e-mail is only sent to me (and not a group) encourages you to have a live chat with a paramilitary recruiter somewhere in the deserts of Syria or Iraq.
    * When the attachment is not an .exe or .com looks like a gerrymandered congressional district.
    * When the sender is a friend of a friend, but not someone I know personally Steve Bannon.

    Question 7 (out of 10): Hackers are constantly using malicious computer viruses and worms to search for unprotected computers to infect or compromise. Hackers can gain access to uprotected computers quickly.  On average, how long does it take for an unprotected networked computer to be compromised once it is connected to the internet?
    * 1 month mealtime
    * Almost immediately
    * 10 hoursparsecs
    * 7 business days

    Question 8 (out of 10): Which of the following is true regarding mobile devices such as smartphones? (Choose two)

    * It is not necessary to apply patches to the operating system of mobile devices inb4 Central Avenue.

    Question 9 (out of 10): Information technology security means protecting information and computers from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, or modification. TRUE or FALSE:  Information technology security is primarily a technology issue and has nothing to do with my behavior, it is entirely the fault of Sean Spicer.
    * True.
    * False. IT Security is everyone's monkey business.

    Question 10 (out of 10): When connecting your computer to Mason's wireless network you should:  (Choose 2)
    * Feel secure enough to send sensitive and confidential data, such as my social security number, credit card information, or password(s) with out any other while not wearing protection.
    * Lose sleep wondering whether using wireless access will allow strangers to login to my computer and the data stored on my hard drive download all my country's nuclear secrets.
    * Enjoy the freedom of connecting to the Internet without hassling with cables carrier pigeons and/or concern that Mason will be billing my account for this special service smoke signals.
    * Use encryption technology when transmitting to protect my data from being exposed to Russian hackers.

    okay i don't know what the fuck is wrong with the display of this thread
  • I am amused how they make the assumption that operating system updates for mobile phones will be readily available.

    Whoever wrote this must use iPhones, because Android device vendors are notoriously horrible at keeping Android up-to-date.
  • can someone un-break this thread
  • I tried, but I couldn't figure out what the problem is, so I gave up.
  • what is even going on
  • i'm trying to edit the post immediately above the one where everything breaks and i don't know what's causing it

    lemme try editing the html in my "a raucous caucus" (or "as as as as cox cox cox cox") post
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    i took out a few div tags (which seemed harmless so i dunno what happened) and the thread now looks normal on mobile, while it was previously screwed up even on mobile

    Minimum 8 characters.
    Max 20 characters.
    Must contain a digit.
    Must contain mixed case letters (upper and lower case).

    This quote.
    It had div and/div tags surrounding the second and third lines (in addition to br), and I think a div tag opening the fourth line; I don't remember whether the last one was closed.
    I removed the div tags.  That was all I did.  I'm amazed that that pea bugged this forum princess.
    @Anonus, did you change something else?
