I suggest everyone watch this and sit back and think, the moral and legal ramifications of the iCloud hack aside. This man is a TECH ANALYST FOR CNN, and pretty much everything that came out of his mouth is nonsense.
So here’s a PSA from me, most of you know who I am and what I do for a living so I’ll leave the creds out of this post.
Changing a letter of a word, lets use password as a example to say pa$$word does not change the difficulty to breach the password.
Now while I HIGHLY doubt the iCloud hack was one through brute force (IE just running a table to guess passwords) everyone should have a strong password.
The thing most used for brute forcing passwords is easy to fool with jiberish unless its a very sophisticated one or run by someone who really knows what they are doing. Simple pick passwords that make sense to you but make no sense in language or to anyone else. Adding characters and numbers help but only along those lines. If you just add 123 to the end of a password it is NO MORE SECURE.
Example of a bad password - pa$$word123 Example of a good password - !h1612@la1880 - This one maks sense to me and means something only to me and no one else (I don’t actually use this password its just a example.)
I really question how people get the credentials of technology analyst on CNN after this.
For all those who don’t know what love is or seek to find it, I have an idea of what it looks like and how it feels and I want to share it as best I can and get this off my chest. This is my story, the names have been changed to protect the one I love.
This guy has the world’s most awesome, advanced prosthetic arm
“A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease of life by a hi-tech bionic hand which is so precise he can type again. Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fibre mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm.”
