Ghost In The Machine gives some good information below, but the main reason is that if a user uses the same password across multiple sites (LinkedIn, Email, Banking) then they become unsecured as well.The way i look at it is if somebody hacks my VR password and posts idiotic stuff like I do, nobody will know the difference. Eventually they will get bored with all this horse crap and move on.
Its a social media site. What in the hell would anybody gain from hacking this site? Just sayin.
Hopefully they will learn about loud pipes, ATGATT, and what damn oil is best to use.
Thanks for the post Ghost, I just wanted to touch on this point here so that others will read it. Having a complex password is a good starting point to safer web surfing.why all the different kinds, well if you ever tried cracking a password the more complex the more combinations the pc has to try, read somewhere once that even adding one uppercase letter and one number to a password almost triples the amount of time the average hackers password cracker takes to crack it.
No problem man, I learned long ago that if you dont know someone does something you cannot prevent it from happening.
Even using the basic Element inspector is something I recommend to all my friends to learn, it shows how a website functions, images on a shoddily constructed websites can be backtracked to Dropbox accounts, or even Ip addresses, a basic understanding of how the internet works in the hands of every pc owner I believe would cut hacks in half in less than a year.
But the main issue is thus, so many sites are now trying to use one password for everything.
Google is the biggest Culprit it took me days to get it sorted out, so it makes me wonder.....how many people's passwords for here are the same as something like their google accounts?
Thats the issue here, apathy while it all is worse case scenario...it is still a scenario.
