Speaking of Zappos... Their new password requirements are tighter. After I got my notice, my new password needed to be:
At least 8 characters long
Contains 1 upper and lowercase letter
Contains 1 number or 1 special character
(My old pw passed without a number or special char.)
Also, from the notice, and perhaps most ominous --
We also recommend that you change your password on any other web site where you use the same or a similar password.
Or a similar password...? Here's hoping that's for the masses [huffingtonpost.com...] and not because of the owned-by-Amazon connection.
