Re: WTF is GPA?
Whilst a high Grade Point Average is to some extent a measure of how smart someone is it's also a very good measure of how good their memory is.
If a persons memory isn't good and they choose a very complex password they won't remember it, get it reset and choose something simpler that they can remember. As such the paper's finding does not come as a massive surprise. The phrase "No shit Sherlock" springs to mind, which incidentally is a weak password despite being 16 characters long and mixed case.
