Privacy, Security, Encryption Oh boy, what do we make of this? We haven't paid that much attention to the whole thing as of yet, but with a recent public statement on why they do what they do, I think it's about time to address this thing. Yes, Lulz Security, the hacking group (or whatever they are) that's been causing quite a bit of amok on the web lately.

Even if it is, it would also be a good idea to choose the right hash. :-)

I think http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_stretching should probably also be on that list.

I've started thinking I should improve my site to do that as well.
