Shame it's not in my power to fire people or force them to sit through a three week class on basic computer security.

That's one point where I may have an advantage: We had a security incident last year, were a trivial passwort was guessed and used to send out spam from our systems. It was mainly annoying, because the provider we use to send out mails (smarthost) simply locked our SMTP account after a few mails.

And I will simply send out a short presentation about passwort security to everyone. Just a few sheets, should take no longer than a few minutes to read and understand.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
