Some bastard hacked into my Ebay account on June 6 or 7, changed my password and e mail address, then put 7 plasma televisions up for sale. I tracked his IP address to England. Ebay got right on it and shut the auctions down and restored my account, but it was still plenty of a headache. If you have a simple password (though I did not think mine was), or don't change it regularly (I hadn't for quite some time), do it.

Good advice. You should use numbers, letters and punctuation in your passwords, but make them easy to remember.Some examples: AR15.COM! W0tmew0ri? Aviator

I usually make a random password like this: 'qwU#5$`!jeuEy#er' Then I just save it to a text file on my computer with an easy to access shortcut on the desktop. I always print out a copy as well. When I need a password, I just cut and paste it in and bingo.

Very good program for keeping track of your passwords: [url=http://www.webattack.com/get/passcorral.shtml]Password Corral[/url]. Freeware - no cost, works quite well.

the best passwords are ones you remember. That .txt file is a security problem, like if you had a Trojan on your pc. As a cracker I would go strait for your password file...easy as 123= You are owned.
