Hey Everyone!

As you know, passwords do have a life expectancy. It should be changed
at least every couple of months and more so if you have had to deal with a
infected PC.

Password generators are just one of the tools to use to ease our tasks.
It's hard enough for most people to come up with a good password so,
why not give this tool a try :

http://www.random.org/passwords/

It will generate as many as 100 random passwords with a maximum of 24
characters. Obviously, most of you would not need 100 passwords but, it
can also generate as little as one when needed.

One word of caution with passwords for your online banking, it should be
handmade by you and you alone. As safe as those online generators are,
sites have been known to be compromised. we just have to look at Sony
a little while back.

Please, no date of birth or names from loved ones. No less than 12 characters
and use at least a couple of numbers plus other characters such as underscores
and percentages # % &.

On a less serious note, we could just take a hint from these wise women :
