HOW YOUR PASSWORD ARE BEING COMPROMISED

The main way that your passwords are being compromised is that major breaches occur so think of the Equifax’s the LinkedIn eBay the target attacks. If you hear about them on the news and you think yourself well I barely even use those sites how does that affect me.



Well what happens on those password breaches is the bad guys get big quantities of passwords and they sell them on the dark web to other actors who then use those passwords to try and attack your accounts. So what ends up happening is if you reuse your passwords they are able to use those passwords and combinations of those passwords to go out and attack your regular accounts.

So this is how it happens a reality they’ve got your compromise password and then they do two different things to that password. They’ll actually modify that password with a set of rules that they know that everybody uses they’ll replace a’s with ads and exclamation points.

At the end and they’ll just do very small variations of that password and they’ll try it on every website your eBay account your amazon account your Banking account everywhere. They’ll try those over and over again if your password’s not very long it makes it very very easy for them to do that.

And even after your password is relatively long and complex they have a set of rules that they know to attack and try variations and it’s very easy for a computer with the right set of rules to figure out what you as a human would have done to modify that password.



The bad guys actually use two different tools to attack your passwords they use what they call dictionaries. Which are lists of commonly used words and phrases and then they will use what they call rule sets which are basically those little changes that you think.

That you’re doing to a password to make them more complex the real problem with this is that when we use these complex passwords it’s really hard for us to remember them. So having a different variation for every website is almost impossible.

So what we do is we write them down everywhere we use almost the same one every time and most of us actually use the same password all over the place really insecure very easy for the bad guys to attack. So what do we do my first recommendation is going to be to create a strong master password.
