How strong is your password?

November 3, 2008

Figure, using the Brute Force Calculator

My password is 9 characters long and has 5,429,503,678,976 combinations.
It takes 19.75 hours or 0.82 days to crack the password on a computer that tries 137,438,953,472 passwords per hour. This is based on a typical PC processor in 2008 and that the processor is under 10% load.

heh. Not as strong as I thought
