okay i think its clear that in the past 9 months hacking us up to a staggering level and atleast one of you reading this has there password out there somewhere on the internet

now let me show you how to survive such attacks

1) DONT USE THE SAME PASSWORD FOR EVERYTHING ... see that? DONT use the same PASSWORD for EVERYTHING ... its a single point of failure and people who do that are the most likely to be hacked ... randomly generating a password with a password generator using letters numbers and caps thats 32-64 chars long is the best way to go ... write it down and print it out 5-6 times ... store one copy at your desk than hide a bunch arround ... if you need public passwords (paswords you use outside of your own computer) print that out on a business card and stick it in your wallet or purse ... common sence will tell you this is stupider than having one bad password in your head but keep in mind HACKERS DONT BREAK IN TO YOUR HOME LOOKING FOR PASSWORDS ... and if it is stolen you have hidden copies to quickly change them

2) CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD ... given enough time any passwords can be cracked so over a certain period of time change them ... for me its every 6 months for everything than between that time (3 months) i change my gmail, MSN and facebook passwords

3) DONT USE STUPID PASSWORDS ... "password" "lmao" "1qaz2wsx" "stupidhackers" yeah if there words, mixture of words and numbers, anything your stupid ... its no longer a hacker guessing your password over and over again ... smarter and smarter software does it for them starting with all 500,000 common passwords than adding caps, numbers exc in there ... even starting with '0' and ending with 'ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ' .... so use random passwords ... for example last month my DA password was 4b4HNW7TVQkOyeJPz43MXnLBCz4rJNjeVsacvlLkNTmmTLlOjEZDoAl49NvCw7Ip that would take longer than 6 months to crack ... so safe

4) check password lists ... yes many are public lulzsecurity.com/releases/ is a nice cashe (lulzsecurity.com/ if you like epic music) ... 64,000 emails and passwords here lulzsecurity.com/releases/6200… ... like a million here lulzsecurity.com/releases/pron… about 32k here lulzsecurity.com/releases/Sony… and here lulzsecurity.com/releases/Sony… a few million here downloads.skullsecurity.org/pa… a few million here downloads.skullsecurity.org/pa… IDK just google ... and there legal to view and have

5) if you have an android or an iphone use gmail and use the authentication app googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/0…

6) expect your password exposed once ... a virus (prodominantly now the mac OSX 10.0-10.7 virus and the windows XP viruses are the most common) infecting millions and stealing passwords and companies stopped giving a fuck a long time ago ... sony, devinatart, FA, flickr, yahoo, hotmail exc all have been hacked or have the easy ability to be hacked and have not fixed there security holes ... so watchout

7)update your computer, check for processes that should not be running , update your OS, dont download like  moron and dont use a mac are the primary keys to not getting hacked in general so ... good luck!

lol its practically the same here with macs and iphones
you hear allot "oh you got an android phone? did you know the iphone has the best screen resolution of any phone?" to where i reply "did you know my android phone does not drop calls, can send a proper sized text, does not track my location everywhere i go and actually browse the web with flash?" lol

I agree, it's what I'm doing (but I don't print 'em, i write it down for fun even if it'll be more safer and less chronophage to print... but my lazyness will solve the problem I guess).

But what's the problem with mac?
