I thought I had a clever password. Then I saw this list in 2010 or something. It was in top10. I even had it as my ATS password.

The best passwords are a sentences transliterated with numbers throughout, at least 15 characters in length. Some sites will even allow special characters making a brute force attack difficult. However, be aware of rainbow crack, and tables as they will put any password to shame, as they are pre-made tables full of hashes with their matching plain-text passwords.

seems funny how anyone would think adding a 1 after "passsword" would make it a stronger password

As another poster has already said - using a sentence with numbers substituted for letters works wonders. This has been my method for years (different sentence topics for different site types) along with purposefully misspelling one word in the sentence.

ex: @b0v3t0ps3cr@t would be a good pw for this site.

The only time I've ever used "password" or "drowssap" were for joint account for online gaming.

Other than that my password is obscure misspelled and full of numbers.

During a recent password audit, it was found that someone was using the following password

"MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofySacramento"
When asked why she had such a long password, she said
she was told that it had to be at least 8 characters
long and include at least one capital.

Solution to this password problem is to use OpenSUSE 12.2 operating systems.

i installed this operating system once with a basic (local) administrator password of ..

aDm1n15trAt0R001 for administrator001.

Its response was 'Your password is not original. Please try again.'

i was stunned beyond all comprehension thinking WTF.

A couple of these posts had me cracking up!

If all else fails, symbols and letters combined are good too.
Numbers in the place of letters work, but there's stronger things to do.

Examples: ( ...,...,63) or (?!!?ye?!!?)

But people have to remember the length or combo.
I've used a variety of passwords, usually strung together for safety.
I can't believe how many people use such easily guessed passwords.
But then again, it doesn't surprise me because of how much people put out there.

First rule of the internet:
Don't trust the internet!

(Almost common sense right?)
