There was a thread on here about passwords last month so I thought I would share. Someone nearly cracked into my gmail the other day. I had a 50+ character, randomly-generate password too. Nonetheless, it ended up being traded on the deep web, and I was notified of it. Naturally, I acted quickly to change my passwords. But what saved me was the two-factor authentication. How does that even happen though? Compromised SSL?
