[AndroidCentral] SplashData outs 2015’s Worst Passwords List - Page 4

post #31 of 54
Whew, I'm not on the list. Thank god for password generators.

I remember about 25 years ago reading about super computers that could compute around 60 GFLOPS. Woohoo! Now a $300 consumer grade CPU can do double that and maybe 25k+ MIPS. Yep, let's just make the password "mother", nobody will ever figure that out! mwahahah!

No. MAC address filtering does not protect your network. Please use a better password.

He did not state mac address filtering makes his wifi network more secure, he stated you have to be whitelisted to connect.

MAC Filter
Use Filter
Enable Disable
Filter Mode

Prevent clients listed from accessing the wireless network
Permit only clients listed to access the wireless network

Yeah but that's not secure is the point ... you could combine mac floods or just spoofing the mac ...

You can still log traffic with just the login

mothergoose729's made an obviously valid point but epic1337 doesn't care for a reason, if he feels the probability of these things happening are minimal the risks are at his expense.

still laziness is a bad habit when it comes to security

This road goes both ways.

My bank login is long and complex. Changes ever few months, etc.

My internet forum password does not. There is no reason to have a 8+ char, +cap, +#, +special for a forum login. mad.gif

Here is a quick example for you.

You have your bank and forum both registered to the same email. Bank is complex password with no 2FA and forum password is insecure.

The websites database becomes leaked and someone cracks your hashed+salted passwords.

A random stranger on the website now access your forum account to obtain your email address, the first thing they do is try to login to your email with the forum password. If your email password is secure you might escape from problems and if not they will simply log in your email and reset your "complex" bank password and empty out your account while you're sleeping.

The point is expecting common sense out of people is the same as expecting fairness in the world or world peace.

Like when I send a .exe file through an e-mail attachment. Gmail doesn't let me send it, so I compress it and encrypt the file names with a password.

I'd tell you what my simplest password is, but it's there for temporary logins to non-crucial data.
