If you’re like me you get fed up with the amount of passwords you need for everything these days. So fed up that you have a couple go-to passwords that work like a charm–or so you thought.
Peking University has created an algorithm, named TarGuess, that is able to crack passwords in less than 100 guesses 73% of the time.
I know, there’s a lot of numbers there. Basically the algorithm proved that it can successfully guess your password in under 100 guesses. If you’re thinking 100 guesses is still a lot just remember that it is simulating a hacker who is most likely willing to put in more time and effort to crack your account than you put in to make it safe.
