MoneyMakerGroup _ Info & Announcements - Please read before you start posting _ Use A Unique Password For Mmg - Always

Posted by: ASFx Jan 19 2006, 02:02 AM

It's extremely important that everyone uses a unique password for MMG that hasn't been used for anything else especially HYIPs and autosurfs. There are scammer HYIP and autosurf admins out there that will steal people's email addresses and MMG accounts simply because people used the same password to signup to the HYIP and MMG.

Another important thing you should remember is that you should NEVER click links in spam emails you may receive. These emails may be disguised as new HYIP launches or even free gmail invites. When you click these emails, you could end up infected with spyware and end up getting your passwords stolen.

IMPORTANT

If you have already used your MMG password to make an account on a HYIP or autosurf, CHANGE YOUR MMG PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY.

Posted by: Radmax86 Jan 19 2006, 02:08 AM

I agree, it is really imperative that you protect your MMG account. Your reputation is attached to your account, and it would be terrible to have that damaged due to simply not being careful. Also, if your account gets stolen, it may end up being used to hurt other MMG members. I really hope everyone listens to this.

I have a version of the "little black book" and I keep it in my...well, I am not going to tell you! But, I have a different password for every site and the only way I can keep track is by using my book. Not only for here, but for work as well, its the only thing that works for me...now if my book gets stolen... or the house burns, I am in big doooo doooo! BUT, I would react as if my credit card was stolen and change them all, most with a lot of trial and error as I change which letters are capitalized and which %%^&*( funky symbols I use. I always use at least 8 letters, 2 symbols and 2 numbers mixed into the original word I am using. for example:

2*monEymaKer&1

Those are hard passwords to crack. Even better is ones that don't make sense and don't spell anything.

I don't trust the password saving sites, those tools you can download, one of them was that purple monkey, and when I upgraded my antispyware, it told me it was one of them!!! That was a couple years ago, since then, its all in my book, and they are changed, regularly.

Keep all your accounts safe in whatever way you can.

Just my humble two cents!

I have a technique that I wanted to share with you on how to produce unique passwords in every website that you register to, yet, you can still remember all of them even without righting them down or saving them in a file (which is also not safe).

1. First, think of a password you wanted to use. Example is your initial, plus your birthday.

Name: John Doe
Birthday: February 12, 1975.

password: jd021275

2. Now here comes the nice part. Take the name of website and decide which letters of each word are you going to use. First letter, second letter or third letter, etc.. Example, let us use the second letter.

Website: MoneyMakerGroup
Second Letter of each word: oar

3. Join the results:

new password: oarjd021275

So everytime you visit any website wherein you are a member, you can quickly remember the password that you used during registration.

it's more dangerous than random passwords
more important thing is not easy to remember but hard to be remembered by others--i think..
well,i don't know why
but i used a unique passwords in here while using same passwords almost everywhere until hacked.

Hi

I use Roboform on a key - have backed up onto another key just incase it gets damaged.

Roboform is very good - it fills in the details for every site and has a password generator - so not a problem to have a really complicated password for every single prog.

The key has a password - so that is the only password I have to remember - if I lose the key - I will go through every site and generate a new password for it - lol

http://www.roboform.com is a password manager and auto form filler that you can install to your computer or a USB drive. It keeps you a lot safer in case you get infected with a trojan or keylogger since you won't have to type your passwords anymore when using roboform. I highly suggest that you use it smile.gif

Looks what the dishonest hyip admin have been done with the old MMG member account in this thread:

http://www.moneymakergroup.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=89849&view=findpost&p=2449775

That's why it is very important to use an unique password for MMG. You sure don't want to ruin your hard built reputation right?

Posted by: diablo2asd Jul 12 2006, 03:01 AM

I used roboform but my trial expired and I'm not going to buy it yet...

For now I have a password protected xls file in which I keep all my info including passwords.

Posted by: talk2christie Dec 18 2006, 02:08 AM

I've heard of people being very happy using roboform but personally I have a separate passowrd for everything. Just need to make sure its all jotted down in a safe place usually inaccessible to others biggrin.gif

Let`s also bear in mind that it`s important to use a strong password, in addition to one that`s different to any others we use.

I like these suggestions made by one of the major email providers-

QUOTE
To create a strong password that is easy for you to remember but hard for someone else to determine, try one of these techniques:

Merge two or more words, and combine the words with numbers and symbols. For example: Walk[My]Dog, Po#34tato, Champions=1995.
Abbreviate a phrase you'll remember. It could include numbers and symbols, or words that you can substitute with numbers or symbols. For example: I ride my bike 5 miles each Saturday could become the password Irmb5meS.
Use punctuation and numbers to combine the initials of people or objects from a familiar group, such as your favorite athletes, friends, movies, books, or historical figures. For example: Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, and Joan of Arc could become the password 1G,2AL,JA.
Drop all vowels from a favorite saying, and then add numbers or symbols. For example: Walk three dogs could become the password Wlk3Dgs.
To be strong, a password must:

Contain at least seven, but no more than 16, characters.
Combine three of the four different types of characters:
Uppercase letters (for example: A, B, C).
Lowercase letters (for example: a, b, c).
Numerals (for example: 1, 2, 3).
Symbols (` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = { } | [ ] \ : " ; ' < > ? , . /).
Not be a common word or name, or a close variation.
Some service providers require that a strong password also:

Not be the same as any of your four previous passwords.
Not be a minor variation of your old password. For example, if your old password was Champions=1995, a new password of Champions=1996 would not be acceptable.
Important

Don't use one of the above examples as your password.
Don't write down your password.
Never give out your password in an instant message conversation or share it with anyone else. You should never be prompted for your password in an e-mail.
If you have more than one e-mail account, for instance, one for work and one for personal use, you should use a different password for each account.

That`s a good way of doing it. Strong passwords which are only used for one site are vital.

Because, today, almost 2009, there are still a lot of people who donít know much about computers, much less about internet security. Thatís why these spaces are so important I think. Security has always been a priority for me, as it should be for anyone with a little common sense. The thing is that every day you find new scamming methods and sometimes it gets difficult to keep up. screwy.gif

12345 most popular stolen Hotmail password

Posted on 7 Oct 2009 at 08:44

The phishing attack that exposed the details of 10,000 Hotmail attacks has revealed that 12345 was the most popular password of those caught out, according to a security researcher.

That's alarming news given the glut of information and warnings that pepper the internet, especially given the fact that the second most popular password was 123456789.

The information was revealed by security research Bogdan Calin on his blog. Calin reviewed the list of 10,000 Hotmail accounts posted on PasteBin by hackers and discovered that of the 9,843 valid passwords, 82 of them used one of these two numbers.

Also popular, and equally weak, were the passwords 12345678, 1234567 and 111111 - which all featured in the top ten.

The rest of the top ten was filled out with names such as alejandra, alberto, and alejandro, leading Calin to suspect that the phishing kit was targeting Latinos.

Another interesting fact to be pulled from his research was the longest password, which came in at a staggering 30 characters and was "lafaroleratropezoooooooooooooo". The shortest password, on the other hand, was only one character long.

In general, Calin found that the majority of the passwords were between six and nine characters long, with the average password eight characters in length.

Hotmail users weren't the only ones caught out by the phishers, with GMail, Yahoo and AOL also reporting that their users have been targeted.
