Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, after 50 days of causing amok on the web, the guys and/or girls behind LulzSec have called it quits last night. After hacking into the systems of various Arizona law enforcement agencies and releasing countless internal documents, they published a statement on Pastebin yesterday, dumping yet another boatload of data on The Pirate Bay, and announcing their disbanding.

I noticed one of the police officers used 12345 as a password. Haven't tehy heard of security?

That is the stupidest password I've heard in my life! That is the kind of thing that an idiot would have on his luggage.

With phones.. "1234" hit's number one. With passwords, "12345" hits second place only to "123456".

Given that security "best practices" are actually "what the majority does" not "based on strong security principals".. "12345" as a password could actually be considered a "best practice". ;)
