So Dropbox got hacked…

Websites who have accidentally leaked my email/password in the past
Are you listening? Good then I shall begin.

How a website secures your your password

It stores it without encryption (very bad)

It encrypts it using a simple form of encryption (better)

A rainbow table showing the encrypted password (hash) and the original version (clear)
You found me

It encrypts it using a salt (best)

For the love of god use a password manager

1. It makes it easier to enter passwords

2. It makes it easy to create different passwords for different websites

3. It helps you generate secure passwords that are harder to crack

See whether you’ve already been hacked
