The password I use for stuff like HWA and other non-critical sites is a 7%! The password I use for banking and such is a 76%.

This.. a good program to steal your password! Click on the link, information sent. Now enter
all your passwords (scam) to check your level of security... BAM bank account emptied!
LMAO!

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

Good point. That's why you need to download the codes to you hard drive, then yank the ethernet plug (or turn off wifi) before testing your pwd's.

I am not really a javascript expert, but some of the things are easy to spot. I would also remove the last few script lines in the Html file, that calls "urchinTracker()". It is a website visitor data tracker ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urchin_(software) ). You don't need it for the function of the script. Also change the script source in the beginning of the Html file to "pwd_meter.js" instead of "pwd_meter_min.js". The min is compressed javascript codes. The regular codes works just fine, and easier to read.

From looking at "pwd_meter.js", I don't seem to see any malicious codes. But then again, I am no expert. Any one here want to verify the code's safe? Thinking of McFly. ;)

McFly's Monkey script doesn't detect any kind of security.

I don't use symbols in most of my passwords, most of mine look something like this:

Not "100%" (whatever that means), but much more than strong enough that I'm more worried about a "rubber-hose" attack.

Something like that. I'd take the free drugs, though.

Its a card full of random letters and numbers and you just need to remember which row and column to start reading from and there's your password.
