Lets see if I can guilt anyone into changing their password

https://howsecureismypassword.net/

I've checked and it doesn't transmit anything back to the server.
So, be honest. How long will it take to hack your password?


I use LastPass to manage my passwords and it generates and fills them for me.

So I am getting

It would take a computer about 1 trillion years to crack your password


Anyone currently beating that?

Anyone who is getting a red background on that page needs to change their password

For a couple years now I've used different passwords for every new account I've created, and for all accounts that require me to change them. Many passwords on my older accounts are fossils now though and someone's probably found one already.

Ha, you need a password manager then. They are one-way hashed here, so I can't look it up for you.

Using "password" gives you instantly. Using my HPCF password gives me 5 seconds. Using my eBay/email/PayPal password (use the same on all my accounts) gives me 2 years.

I can live with that. I might be dead in 2 years.

I'm all for strong passwords, but I wouldn't be surprised if computers become self aware long before a trillion years and make gains in computing power far beyond our wildest imaginations such that cracking any password could be accomplished nearly instantaneously. The machines may also invent a time machine that can simply go back to when and where the password was created, witness the event and record the password with no need to crack anything. Said time machine could also be quite useful in recovering 'lost' web pages and 'lost' software. It would eliminate the need for archive.org.

That is what quantum computing is expected to do. The crack duration is based on current computational standard, not predicted future ones. In 5 years time, those numbers will be halved.

I can beat that. 42 . . . minutes. (Obviously I don't have to worry about that being halved in five years. )

So you're sure this isn't a phishing page, C:Amie? It's pretty clear they're trying to get you to download their product.

It wasn't originally, looks like d*s*l*n* are sponsoring it now. I suggest using LastPass.

If password based system leaks hash of password or is accepting too many retries, it's a failure of engineering regardless of the existence of quantum computers.

Leaks the unsalted hash of the password, certainly.

What do you guys think of this?

A $600 Desktop Quantum Computer That Breaks Encryption. Wow or Woof?

Seems like a demo is coming to RSA Conference.
If this is true, we are compromised.

By the way, the thread is haalf a year old and I still have the strongest passwords because I did not submit them to a random website and I do not store them in a vulnerable (in past and potentially) closed source software.
