Leroy Boudin blanc Since: 7.2.02 Since last post: 446 days Last activity: 446 days # 1 Posted on 17.6.11 1132.45 | Instant Rating: 6.22 An article by Troy Hunt, analyzing the compromised account information (which, apparently, is now available through BitTorrent). A brief Sony password analysis (troyhunt.com) Some real quick gems (I've only had time to glance through this): • Sony stored over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plaintext • only 4% of passwords had three or more character types. • less than 1% of passwords contained a non-alphanumeric character. • the top 25 passwords were: seinfeld, password, winner, 123456, purple, sweeps, contest, princess, maggie, 9452, peanut, shadow, ginger, michael, buster, sunshine, tigger, cookie, george, summer, taylor, bosco, abc123, ashley, bailey • two thirds of people with accounts at both Sony and Gawker reused their passwords. • 92% of passwords were reused across both PSN and SonyPictures. • 82% of passwords would easily fall to a basic rainbow table attack.

carnage Linguica Since: 16.2.05 Since last post: 32 days Last activity: 32 days # 2 Posted on 17.6.11 1156.18 One quick note about this part: Originally posted by Leroy • 92% of passwords were reused across both PSN and SonyPictures. He does mention in the article that "this database is not directly related to PSN." The 92% of passwords that were reused were both databases realted to the sonypictures.com website. Still a good article and hopefully Sony gets it together. Also, time to change all of my passwords...I guess everyone loves Seinfeld too.
