Quick Bytes: Weak Passwords

By Peter Piazza

Do you use the same password for all the different sites you visit that require one? If you do, you’re in the majority, according to a poll of 100 people conducted by UPEK, a manufacturer of biometric products. Half of those who use the same password say that it is based on the name of their spouse, pet, hometown, or favorite baseball team—and it is never changed.
 @ More from the UPEK survey, which also considers the public’s acceptance of using biometrics instead of passwords, is at SM Online.
