Password Security?

Here is an interesting site that will help you with testing your passwords. One of the ways hackers gain access to accounts is through what is known as a "brute force attack". The best passwords are always random letters, symbols, and numbers, but many find these hard to remember and go for more simple versions.

The Hackosis Brute Force Calculator will figure out for you how long it would take someone to access your account. Very cool. Think you need a stronger password? Enter the new idea and see if it scores better.
