Now they want your passwords, too.

The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge users' stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed.

What is it about that statement that makes you think I'm stupid?

Assuming that's a serious question...

It depends on how the developer put the system together. If they're storing passwords in plain text then they can see them. Ideally they should be storing hashes of passwords at least...salted passwords being better than mere hashes.

Here's a reference on how to do this the right way.

Salting is pretty important because you can take a dictionary of words (or known passwords from another breach) and create a table of hashes. For example if I compromise a database and dump the usernames and passwords...look through and see this:

5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99

I know that you've chosen "password" as your password.

As far as how to choose your password so that it's tough to brute force?



If you insist on using something other than a phrase, be a gentleman and at least search through some of these commonly used password dictionaries to see whether or not you're vulnerable to a dictionary attack.

LOL @ Google pretending to give a shit about your privacy.

They're one of the biggest perpetrators of privacy invasion on the planet.

I do not believe Yahoo or Google or whoever would supply anyone with passwords, for no other reason than if it got out, their company would cease to exist overnight. I do, however, believe that the government could probably crack into just about anyone's Gmail if they really wanted to.
