Use better passwords? I mean, if your password isn't at least 10 characters long, ya know, you can get hacked. . .

OP: This same **** a week ago. 12 letter password mixed case + numbers. I don't download any suspicious programs without sandboxy first. Weird man.

its 8 letters with 2 numbers. i think its strong enough.

you know its pretty easy to keylog a password right?
no matter if you got a 30 case password, a keylog will find it right away.

having long passwords only protects against the type of password breakers that use Brute force which tries every single possibility.
i have tried before to find passwords from winrar files using this type of program.
you can program it so it tried every possibility first with 3 digits, 4, then 5 then 6...etc
you can decide to do it with or without caplock, with or without numbers etc...
thats bruteforce breach, only reason ppl get long passwords.

a key log is a malware program that records every key u press and they determine the password with the time you entered said acc and the keys press prior to entering, pretty easy..
i mustve had one of those, i recently had a hard time removing a backdoor svchost trojan which anonymously downloaded and uploaded stuff without my knownledge, i was wondering why i kept getting spikes...

this **** took me 5 hours to remove...step by step, manually cause no program can remove trojans fully..
