    Exclamation Which of the following two passwords is stronger... tell me!

    Which of the following two passwords is stronger, more secure, and more difficult to crack?

    Every password you use can be thought of as a needle hiding in a haystack. After all searches of common passwords and dictionaries have failed, an attacker must resort to a “brute force” search – ultimately trying every possible combination of letters, numbers and then symbols until the combination you chose, is discovered. If every possible password is tried, sooner or later yours will be found. The question is: Will that be too soon . . . or enough later?

    Hmm.... password1 takes 33,000 years to crack. Perhaps a dictionary attack + common passwords, then move to brute passwords.

    Not surprised at the one above. Although, I got it wrong when I guessed.
