LulzSec victims (BF heroes users) should change all passwords. Sudogamer suggest their favourite solution to the problem - Lastpass.
these types of things are secure as long as they are secure lol, one day something happens and you loose I remember my passwords, there are ways and techniques to create and remember multiple passwords
I don't understand this comment?
"things are secure as long as they are secure lol" 'A rose is a rose is a rose'? Seriously, though, what?
the only really good password generator/protector will be changing your password constantly, only stopping so that you can log on, which isnt really something thats very possible, you'd probably get blocked by the places that you need to remember the password of if someone finds your password in a database it doesnt matter if your password is "GÜ-3T₧!yÄ─6 20;☻9╣Vl╛5öYp⌡█", all they have to do is copy and paste it, password strength is irrelevant when they have access to the database its really only protecting you from loosing multiple accounts from different companies if youre using the same password/email at multiple companies. its pretty pointless, though i could see why people buy it, it gives a pretty good illusion of safety to people who dont know what the shits happening. a lot like those MAKEMYPCFAST.com commercials lol
Coryok- "if someone finds your password in a database it doesnt matter if your password is "GÜ-3T₧!yÄ─6 20;☻9╣Vl╛5öYp⌡█", all they have to do is copy and paste it, password strength is irrelevant when they have access to the database " - This is wrong. They have the passwords heavily encrypted that are readable only with the key that YOU have! "its pretty pointless, though i could see why people buy it," - Keypass is free. You can pay for a premium version, but the free one has the desired effect.
lol and if lastpass gets hacked... you lose everything. :P I consider my computer more, secure. Than lastpasses servers, and that's the bottomline - so firefox password manager is better for me.
I'm not sure you grasp just how useless encrypted data is, without the encrpytion key? This is the whole point.. only YOU have the key - without it, the data is useless. Read up on it before (wrongly) commenting! :)
Yeah you're right. I didn't read the article. I thought it was similar to one of these other facilities. Still I'm not sure it's not naive to consolidate all your passwords onto one. If your system were compromised, they'd most likely acquire your last pass.
