Bombshell discovery: When it comes to passwords, the smarter students have it figured

I must be a genius

All my passwords are unique pseudo-random alphanumerics, quite lengthy too, heck some even change over time (OTP) and sometimes 2FA or 3FA

I always knew really, I didn't need their confirmation of my genius

It's a shame the weakest link is probably the shonky coding of the web application, because the company fails to properly invest in resources, especially IT security

How many breaches have we seen?

How many have we yet to hear about?

How many will we potentially never hear about?

My lengthy unique pseudo-random alphanumerical passwords don't looks so great now, but its better than having qwerty, or the password being the same as the user name (that one is a favourite of managed services companies BTW) - Convenience!
