Password Attacks – Several websites comprised during June 2012 http://blog.trendmicro.com/password-insecurity-revisited/

QUOTE: The month of June is turning into a very bad month for password security. Last week three major sites – Linkedin, eHarmony, and last.fm – all suffered from major leaks that put millions of user passwords online. Earlier this week, it was revealed that the game League of Legends has also suffered its own flaw which put customer data – including passwords – out into the open.  What have we learned about password security from these incidents? That people are still using woefully insecure passwords. Too many people are still using frightfully short passwords like 1234, or words that are too short/guessable (examples would be job or linkedin).
