Talking The longest password ever

During a recent password audit by a company, it was found that an employee was using the following password:

“MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofySacrame nto”

When asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her eyes and said: “Hello! It has to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital.”

I doubt it since she spelled the character names and the capital correctly!

Password policies suck balls. We are allowed to rotate ours every three years, and we have to change the damn thing every 6 freakin weeks. Studies also show such policies aren't effective...

So I start with my password, and then append to it...every 6 freakin weeks, for 3 effing years, and then I can start over.

Pretty much the same where I work. You can't use the same password if it's been used the last 12 times, it has to vary by at least 3 characters from your previous 12, and we must use different passwords for each of the many programs we use daily. Ours also changes every 6 weeks or so.

All this to access dull information that would be of little - if any - use to anyone who isn't an employee.
