Default Passwords with grammar chaotic secure make

A study compiled at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania confirms that long passwords are not necessarily more secure than short ones – because, if common expressions or phrases are used for authentication, password crackers can apply suitable rules to decrypt them. The team of scientists examined around 1,430 passwords from a previously published study and managed to use a custom algorithm that followed grammar rules to crack around 10 per cent more passwords than popular tools.
