No doubt you've been inundated in recent weeks with a bunch of "We're updating our privacy policy" emails, from every website you've ever signed up to (and many you may have forgotten about).

But nowadays, password attacking scripts specifically target common habits like this. And if you're using the same password for your website as you use for internet banking... well... obviously this can end very badly!
