NewsShould websites be required to publicly disclose their password storage strategy? Pin

staffTerrence Dorsey4-Mar-13 11:26 
I don’t know how Evernote stored my password, you know, the one they think might have been accessed by masked assassins (or the digital equivalent thereof).... Last year we saw LinkedIn breached and some millions of SHA1 passwords with no salt exposed. Last week we saw Australia’s own ABC do the same thing; it took me 45 seconds to crack 53% of those and others have since gone on to crack more than 90% of them. These storage mechanisms are not robust, they’re stupid.
“Robust” means storing them in plain text behind a website riddled with XSS and SQL injection.
