Security Humor: Irish Password

Ken Harthun Ken Harthun Profile: Ken Harthun

I don’t know about you, but I often get a bit weary of the constant “seriousness” of security issues. It’s not all doom and gloom, you know; some things are actually funny. With that in mind, I’m launching my new ongoing series “Security Humor” and with that, today’s installment (no offense to my Irish readers and friends) entitled, “Irish Password.”

During a recent password audit at Bank Of Ireland it was found that Paddy O’Toole was using the following password:


When asked why he had such a long password he replied: “Oi was told it had to be at least 8 characters long and include one capital!”

I plan to post a minimum of two installments a month, more during slow security news times. As always, comments are welcome. Go ahead and tell me what you think right now!
