Password Security

Today I got an email from a site, that I haven’t visited in years, saying that they had been hacked and the password database had been stolen. Yikes!

Since I used only two different passwords for most of my logins, I decided to change all of my passwords. Each site now has a different 10 character password with uppercase, lowercase, digits and special characters. Some sites didn’t allow special characters, so I substituted another character. I used a random password generator from Ryan Finnie.
