Default Passwords: change every 25 years or so

An article from Internet Storm Center entitled “Password rules: Change them every 25 years” suggests that routine password changing is largely useless — despite the common rule (to employees, usually) to change passwords every 90 days. The author is Daniel Wesemann.

Some of the replies dispute the author’s points, but most — by security types — agree with it.

All commenters argue for strong passwords, and at least one pointed out the hazard of using the same password for many locations.

Interesting article, with a neat four-item list of ways people can swipe your password.
