The Weird and The Wonderful


The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

This isn't actually as much of an epic fail as it appears, since users will presumably change their password immediately upon receiving the letter, so interceptors can only use the password for maybe a day. Considering they've already been hacked in plain text, that's not so bad.
It is stupid and symptomatic of a complete failure of security policy, definitely, and pretty shameful. But, imo, not as bad as storing the passwords in plain text in the first place.
