One in ten

Plenty to say about this week’s Torchwood marathon, but I think I’ll wait until the last episode.  I’m dying to see what sort of deus ex machina they have to rely on to get out of it all.

One thing though: passwords.  I do believe that some people are stupid enough to give a newcomer their username and password, even if the have access to the toppest of top secrets, but I do not believe that such a place would have got accreditation for their computer system to hold such secrets in the first place if it allowed simple passwords like “hastings”.  No numbers.  No punctuation.  No mix of upper and lower case…  whoever is in charge of that network needs to be sacked.   And whoever it was in CESG who signed the accrediation should follow them!
