Yeah, don't bother.

Far too hard to set up.

Maybe you could create one yourself, put your studies to good use.

Thumbs up

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting 'FUCK WHAT A RIDE'

"pig coffee wandered black"... what the fuck was that journalist thinking at the time? Laughs out loud




Tbf it makes sense that a string of random characters and numbers is going to stand out more in a file than actual words. And I would wager that most people use @ in their password so I would start by actively looking for that myself.



Passwords are stored as a hash which is obscured, so the whole file is random characters

e.g. the MD5 hash of password is 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99

The point of the article is selecting 4 words at random is more secure than a single word with character substitutions or adding numeric/punctuation, which, I suspect, is what most of us use as recommended in the past.

Spambot leaks more than 700m email addresses in massive data breach

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/aug/30/spambot-leaks-700m-email-addresses-huge-data-breach-passwords

It's times like this I love owning domains with email systems, so I can have a different email address for each site I register on.

That also provides some interesting insights into how many sites are compromised, even some you'd expect to be secure like logmein Disturbed
