  • Where I work, you will still get fired.

    • by sigzero (5768) on 2006.05.01 12:40 (#47483) Journal

      I should mention thought that we have 90 day, can't use last 5, must be "hard" passwords. So that isn't too bad.

      • Since when did "can't use previous n passwords" result in something other than simple variations on the standard password?
        • It doesn't. I didn't mean to imply (and I don't think I did) that it did. Certainly my experince is people just tack a number on the end or something (i.e. B0b1, B0b2, etc.).

          I was just being cheeky with him and not serious at all./p.

          • It's hard to be serious in the face of such overwhelming crap, anyway. This journal entry was immediately preceeded by a gripe session with two important security people in my company who thankfully work in my building. They agree the situation is crap.

        • I never reuse passwords. At least, not for work systems.
