:loool: :loool: :loool: :loool: :loool: :loool: :loool:

My password format makes me secure against all these shitty attacks and allows me to use countless services without having to remember each one.

Try it:
passwordbase (lower case) + service (uppercase)

If you make the passwordbase part super long (like a phrase or something) then it's impossible to reverse the salt... as long as you never use the real passwordbase alone as password.
Example:

thisismypassword22UT99
thisismypassword22EPIC
thisismypassword22GIT
etc.

BTW, never do a salt lookup of these passwords or someone might actually be able to reverse it.

Yes, and now with Higor's passwords I can run amok on those forums and replace everywhere he put "ferbots" with "furrybots"!

I was reading the news about this but there wasn't anything too much alarming. But if I remembered... here is the link I read it:

Sites are still down. Best to change passwords regardless of what they say.

Now I have to look if I have used the PW somewhere else and replace it as well. I hope not.

Many thanks for the heads up. Considering this site and UnrealSP are my primary sources for UT/Unreal related info, I may not have otherwise read about this... :thuup:

Actually, I try not to post the same stuff to each forum I've got one on.

That and there's some real prizes from other posters, like this gem:

Someone posted that to the Epic forum of which we speak.

I giggle my ass off everytime I see it!
