Seems like Facebook, Google and other media giants are always stirring up controversy. The latest is Facebook Home which puts a layer of Facebook apps over the top of your Android phone. Read what Tina Courtney-Brown has to say:
There was recently a massive bot targeting WordPress sites with over 90,000 IPs to overcome login security. It could process over 1 billion passwords per hour. If you still don’t think a strong password is important, it’s only a matter of time before you find out the hard way.
I’ve been to several WordPress seminars and one was specifically on WordPress security. Even with a fair password, we were shown how a site can be hacked in less than 10 minutes with the right free tools. A little scary. Needless to say, we’ve implemented even more security into our sites and were happy to find out we’ve already been doing most everything we can in this area.
EASY STRONG PASSWORDS: Strong passwords do not have to be long strings of upper/lowercase, numbers, symbols, etc., although this is not bad. A strong password can be any unique phrase you can remember easily, including spaces and punctuation over 15 digits. That’s just 3 simple words that could save you a lot of trouble in the future.
