Despite high-profile security breaches such as Jack Straw’s Hotmail account being compromised, and cybercriminals gaining access to celebrity Twitter accounts after cracking an administrator password, a third of computer users are still using the same password for every website they access according to newly revealed stats* from Sophos.
