Far, far to many people assume that either their data is "safe" because it is on their server, or that encrypting passwords on their server is a good idea.
I think it is largely because the teachers don't have any real world experience so they don't mention it (or more likely don't know about it).

The monthly example doesn't seem to sink in - "that doesn't apply to us" - any more than SQL Injection attacks do. Sigh | :sigh:

This is one reason why I use a new password for every system I go to - if any one is compromised, it can't allow access to any others.
Of course, this means I can't remember any of them, so I have to have a password encrypted store of passwords... Laugh | :laugh:
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
