How hard is it to 'guess' your password?
The amazing thing about internet security is that while passwords are something that individuals have complete control over, they are, too often, treated completely casually. It tuns out that 20% of the time it is actually very easy to 'guess' your 'weak' password.
Let's see... here is my top 10 list. I can obtain most of this information much easier than you think, then I might just be able to get into your e-mail, computer, or online banking. After all, if I get into one I'll probably get into all of them.
Your partner, child, or pet's name, possibly followed by a 0 or 1 (because they're always making you use a number, aren't they?)
The last 4 digits of your social security number.
123 or 1234 or 123456.
Your city, or college, football team name.
Date of birth - yours, your partner's or your child's.
