The “Golden Rule” of password security is NOT to choose a password that is easily guessable, or one that might be found in a dictionary. The reason for this is that many hacker tools can crack dictionary-based passwords in mere seconds.
This web based demonstration shows how truely easy it is to break dictionary based passwords, regardless of the type of encryption algorythm used to encrypt them. Simply paste in an encrypted password value, and then count the seconds it takes to return the password associated with that encrypted value (won’t be long….)
