It is commonplace for users to use the same password for multiple sites, including banking. Atlanta IT company, Magnicom, is setting out to help individuals and companies up their security game.
The effects of one password being hacked is not limited to that one website. Most users nowadays save their usernames and passwords using the password management built into Internet Explorer, Firefox & Google Chrome. The password management built into these browsers is not secure and can easily be retrieved. Others keep their passwords on post-it notes that are attached to their monitor or in "Password Protected" Word & Excel files, but these can be hacked in about 5 seconds with free tools found easily on the web. Once a hacker has compromised one account, more than likely they easily login to other websites, email accounts, secure logins, etc. by testing that same password.
There have been numerous high-profile website attacks over the last few months that prove just how damaging hacking is and how time consuming it is to change passwords.
