Amazing, true, but I wonder how many said “GotoHell123”.

I’d like to photograph Jerry.

Back in the early 90s, I went to a seminar on security. The guy said social engineering was the #1 way to hack a system. It’s still true, huh?

I’d like to believe that the people who shared, were lying and those weren’t their actual passwords. But I’m not confident that is true.


#6

Just ask Kevin Mitnick

It’ll always be true. The vast majority of ‘hacking’ isn’t about some guy tapping away at a keyboard while staring at a command prompt. Its about either getting someone to tell you the info you want, or engineering actual physical access to the system.

I put my cyberbrain into “autistic mode” before watching videos like this.

I’ll just leave these random password generator sites here…

I like to combine and remix the results a bit on the off chance either site caches the generated outputs.
