In-Security news bits

Goodness. It just doesn’t ever stop does it?

I’ve finally stripped out Shockwave from all our home systems after reading these posts.

Re: The Cobra Effect...

Well, that is just brilliant. Someone did not think that through very well. When I setup passwords for clients I always use a password generator and in the documentation I send them I instruct to copy and paste the password. They are not going to remember it and even trying to type it in from the directions, there is an easy chance they could, transpose a couple characters or may not realize that l is actually an I or 1.

Not sure which is worse having people use weaker passwords because they can't paste or locking people out of the site because they can't paste the password and keep messing it up.
