Why don't people learn!

Perhaps they weren't bothered about their account at Adobe. I wonder how many of those use the same passwords elsewhere.

"123456" was the most popular password among the millions of Adobe users whose details were stolen during an attack on the company.

About 1.9 million people used the sequence, according to analysis of data lost in the leak.[url]Adobe User Hack Reveals Most Common Passwords[/url]

    Mackin, all of the HealthCare.gov dev folks share that "password" one, for their Dreamweaver accounts. Stop posting it, word will get around. :-)

    Who knew what a lot of French users Adobe has.

    Has anyone had any luck with the phrase-initial approach to passwords? Where "luck" = there is a better than 50% chance that I will remember this password before a computer cracks it. As in

    :: racking brains ::

    Witcoheibnfoptdt
    or
    Fasyaofbfutcann

    (qfm and probably wrong, so it's a good thing I am not using either of these)

    I once used "open" as a password. But there were extenuating circumstances ;)

    Did you see the photo of Kathleen Sebelius accepting a copy of "Websites for Dummies" at a presser?
