A recent post by William Peacock on the Technologist at Findlaw points out that WordPress sites have been targeted by a botnet seeking to hack passwords. If you are reading this, chances are they didn’t hack my password.
For some reason, bloggers were using combinations containing the word “admin” as a password. Probably not such a great idea. Short combinations of letters, numbers and symbols apparently are not worth a dang either. As the following demonstrates, use a few random words. Much easier to remember and much harder to hack.
