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


The article says that 215 students hashes were in Troys database and states this was down to bad/unsafe passwords. Wrong. They are in Hunts databases because they happened to be signed up to websites that got hacked. There is no relation to IQ at all.

Maybe a correlation between how many sites someone signs up to, or quality of site, could be made relating to IQ but that is not what the article says.
