Thanks for the post and information. I know a lot of people that use their kids names as passwords. Not Good.

do they have a program that inputs all possible password combination or something?
hackers have their own beautiful ways of getting in an access to any user and hardware. They might use their own talents mixed up with those annoying softwares which helped them in their journey to hack....

sofwares like Lopthcrack, cain and abel, john the ripper etc.. those are the softwares they use to hack and crack accounts, pc's ports and others...

I knew a guy once who used "microsoft" backwards as his password for everything.....of course he told everyone so it wasn't too secure.....lol

The only thing I will say about my passwords is that they're Spanish......
