The Chickens are Coming Home to Roost
Sorry, not sorry.
Look, ransomware and supply chain disruptions are serious topics. But something else caught my attention in this story about a ransomware attack on an “Iowa-based farm services provider.”
As the article tells it, the security firm brought in to investigate the security breach “found the password ‘chicken1’ was used more than ten times” among the company’s 120 employees. I don’t know about you, but I think maybe this organization might have set a rule that you cannot use “chicken” as your password. This company could have benefited from some password complexity advice.
Hog farmers, take note. Your turn is coming.
