World Password Day - Movie Password Tier ListBlog
World password day is this week and we’ve decided to make a tier list highlighting popular movies/TV and the passwords they used in the theatrical release. Check out our Tier Maker templateNow, before you get upset that your favorite movie doesn’t rank high enough or there is no movie in an S tier rank, let’s talk about the ranking methodology. I want to preface this with the fact that with 4x2080ti GPUs you can crack 15 characters in 15 hours (almost 3 years ago) so this alone kills anything below A tier. Also, almost every movie here (or at all) doesn’t have computer terminal interface that allows uppercase/lowercase so we had to ignore that factor when grading. F Tier → <=8 characters, No special characters, ONLY numbers or ONLY letters, repetitive, sequential or VERY easy to guess [0000, 1234, password, football] D Tier → <= 8 characters, No special characters, ONLY numbers or ONLY letters. C Tier → <=8 characters, can include special characters, MUST include numbers an

Any windows 10 users got emails from Microsoft?
Blame me for possibly be paranoid but did any of the Windows 10 users here get a Microsoft mail asking you to install Onenote by clicking on a link?? Sample screenshots below ( nevermind the lingo that's because i'm using a Dutch OS ) [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23288iB4402B5F5DF993A4.jpg[/img] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23289iE7FAAF9D0842029B.jpg[/img] Looks quite legit ( a bit too legit to me :@ ) The one thing that ticks me off is they send you to a link while you can get it from the app store...

Microsoft wants you to forget Windows 8
[b]Comment:[/b] [b]In this article Microsoft would like us to forget Windows 8 and move on.[/b] By [url=http://www.computerworld.com/s/author/9000163/Gregg+Keizer]Gregg Keizer[/url]July 25, 2014 11:07 AM ET Computerworld - As talk of the next Windows begins to build and some details of what most are calling for now either Windows 9 or Threshold come into focus, it's worthwhile to take a moment to remember Windows 8. Because Microsoft will want everyone to forget it. And we will. Unless the Redmond, Wash. technology company radically changes its habits, it will throw Windows 8 down a memory hole even before the successor ships. Just like it made Vista persona non grata in its official messaging in 2009, it will shove Windows 8 so far into the background that we'll need the Hubble telescope to find it.

Good morning, beauitful community! I was searching around for a more efficient way to take notes for class. I most likely need a slightly more sophisticated option, as my notes will be lengthy (I am willing to accomodate a reasonable price in this case). I would need features such as the ability to organize and store notes, add written annotations, and needs to be compatable with a Windows 10 PC. I really trust your product knowledge, and didn't want to risk trial and error, when I could go to experts for advice! I am not sure this question should have been in "Techie". Please move it if not, and my apologies. Thank you so much, everyone :) <3 ! ~Tamela
Android malware can infect your PC. Here is how to protect yourself.
[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/1750i0C6643B273C89C45.gif[/img]Recently, two applications designed with malicious intent were discovered within the Google Play application store. The apps were built with a façade of being utility cleaners designed to help optimize Android-powered phones, but in reality, both apps had code built in designed to copy private files, including photos, and submit them to remote servers. The applications, named SuperClean and DroidClean, did not stop there. Researchers also found that the malware was able to AutoRun on Windows PC devices when the phones were paired, and infect the main computer. The malware was designed to record audio through the computer’s microphone. AutoRun has often been used as a method of infection, and Microsoft has since sent a security fix out to Windows XP/Vista/7 in order to disable the exploitable element. In some cases, however, the feature might have been re-enabled by the user for conven
Lan over powerline or wireless adapter?
Hey everyone! I have a gigabit router and download speeds of 100Mbps (on a wired connection). I have a desktop that is 50 feet to the left and then one story higher than the router. I know I can't expect a full 100 down speed without being directly wired to the router, but which of these would give me a faster speed? The powerline adapter where one is plugged into the wall and router, and the second one is plugged into the wall and computer; or just a USB wireless N adapter? Thanks :D Shran

RIP, WebTV: Microsoft to shut down MSN TV on Sept. 30
Microsoft is pulling the plug on MSN TV, a service formerly known as WebTV, as Apple ramps up its set-top box efforts. The pioneering service, one of the first to offer Internet access via television sets, will shut down September 30, Microsoft revealed in an e-mail to subscribers and an [url=http://www.msntv.com/msntv2/ClosureFAQ.asp]FAQ posted to its Web site[/url]. WebTV, which was founded by Web entrepreneur Steve Perlman in 1996, was [url=http://news.cnet.com/Microsoft-WebTV-deal-cleared/2100-1033_3-202038.html]acquired by Microsoft for $425 million[/url] in 1997. WebTV offered television-based e-mail and Web browsing via wireless keyboards but struggled to gain traction with consumers. Microsoft rebranded the service as MSN TV in 2001 to accelerate integration with products such as MSN Messenger and MSN Hotmail. The software giant even offered the interactive service for free to new MSN online service, but it has largely taken a backseat to the company's focus on the&

Computers have not been around in the public domain for too many years BUT they have exploded onto the market and improved at such an incredible pace the old programs we have all loved all too soon get superceded by new ones so what have you all got laid around?

Child Safety Online: What Every Parent Should Know
Apart from grounding your kids or having the awkward “we need to talk” talk, there are some serious risks for kids who are connected all the time. The truth is, even if parents trust that their kids are making the right decisions online, threats such as online predators, inappropriate content, and cyberbullies are real. The Internet safety for children advocacy group, [i]ikeepsafe.org[/i], brings to light three main risks associated with all connected technology: [b]Inappropriate Contact[/b],[b] Content[/b], and [b]Conduct[/b] (the 3 C’s). [b]Inappropriate contact[/b] occurs when strangers or predators online reach out to kids to establish new relationships or to engage in regular communication. “The Internet is a place to enhance existing relationships, not a place to meet new people,” warns the organization. And it happens more than we would like to think. A recent study done by [url=http://www.redorbit.com/news/technology/2065158/study_examines_online_beha
How to update Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 using Windows Update
[b]The upgrade process[/b] The first thing you need to do is downloaded a [url=http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-download]small program from Microsoft[/url] which prepares your Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system for the upgrade. It is a 10 Megabyte file that runs automatically on your computer after you execute it. It requires a restart of the PC so that the changes it made take effect. The device will boot into the current operating system after restart.

UTube Website Security Scan?
Hi, I'm wondering if the Webroot Antivirus scans all of the links/sites that are sometimes listed under UTube videos to check if they're OK to use. I've been searching for a movie but have come across lots of links to other sites that stream the full film on-line, are these sites also checked by Webroot?
What Do You Know About Webroot?
In addition to all of the most well-known features like the real-time antivirus protection, the identity protection through the Identity Shield, and the Password Management (Antivirus, Internet Security Plus, and Complete editions) and Backup & Sync (Complete edition) features, there are other useful, often lesser-known features.
