Fun thing I learned today regarding secure passwords: the password "ji32k7au4a83" looks like it'd be decently secure, right? The reason it looks like left/right keyboard mashing is because the Zhuyin layout puts initial consonants on the left side of the keyboard and vowels/rimes on the right of the keyboard.Robert Ou @ BSidesSF added,oh my godMy immediate guess is it corresponds to something really obvious if you enter it in via Cangjie (or possibly some other Chinese IME). I recall a video on how Chinese (and Japanese?) businesses use numbers because it sounds like parts of speech in their languages.That's true for chinese, but for the password above it's using Zhuyin keyboard so it's probably Taiwanese password as they are the only country to use bopomofo something generic as "password" but typed on a Chinese or Japanese keyboard, while treating it as QWERTY?foone Retweeted Peter Barfuss 𒀱Bingo: …foone added,Is your password strong? Congratulations, you just provided one of your security question answers!Wrong, @troyhunt has gone into great detail explaining how the service avoids capturing passwords.Yeah, that’s not how it works, read about k-anonymity here: …Sorry Troy, I wasn't pointing fingers, just pointing out how social media works and how people should be aware of sites that offer password strength tests along with answer questions on social media that would be found in security questions for account recovery.
