WEB users should change their passwords to really dirty swearing, it has been claimed.
Experts warned the only way to stop Russian hackers stealing everything was by creating super-obscene passwords.
IT security consultant Stephen Malley said: “Your current passwords are something lame like ‘Gary1977’ or your dog’s name. You need to swap them for swearing because the Russian hackers don’t know our rude words.
“The dirtier a password, the more secure it is.
“‘Havingawank01’ is weak but ‘shitfuckorgyfanny69’ is strong, especially as not many people use the word ‘orgy’ these days.”
Mary Fisher, 67, said: “As a ‘silver surfer’ I find these things a bit confusing. I already had ‘fistmyfishym1nge’ as my Lloyds password, just because it sprang to mind at the time, but is it lewd enough?”
