Kill The Password

I guess the author has a point when it comes to passwords being useless if there’s a breach. But he also seems to be complaining about trivial things that could be solved with password managers such as KeePass.

The static password sitting in a database, is perhaps the dumbest idea anyone ever came up with for security. As soon as a resourceful (or even not terribly bright) hacker finds his or her way into the database, as we’ve learned time and time again, the passwords are sitting there for the taking, a giant treasure chest, a hacker’s wet dream.
