Security Idiot #1

This has got to be the biggest computer security blunder ever.

Oh Snap! Lenovo protects your Security with '12345678' as Hard-Coded Password in SHAREit

"Yes, Lenovo was using one of the most obvious, awful passwords of all time as a hard-coded password in its file sharing software SHAREit that could be exploited by anyone who can guess '12345678' password."

How the hell do people that dumb get jobs ? Unbelievable.

No Lenovo, no Shareit. I always change default password.

Maybe there's another meaning to the name ShareIt.. as in share your data because you've been hacked.

Wow. I have a Lenovo. But don't use Shareit. I use Link and Blend. :)

Was it Sony that had a folder called passwords and stored all the passwords in it?
