Alerts are raised about passwords used for protecting online accounts. However, we know that problems are sometime brought to the scene and overrated by those having a solution to sell. Is this the case here, or is it legitimate? In this post, I discuss what’s wrong with passwords. There’s barely a week where we don’t read about someone’s online accounts being hacked, or a breach at a major website, credit card processor, or company, where user passwords leak. Unlike when a jewelry is robbed, it is usually unclear how such attacks are possible, and what the benefits are for those perpetrating them, but the fact that they hit well-known businesses or persons is enough to bring them to the headlines.
