  • How safe are the genererated passwords which WP randomly generates for you? They are usually just 7 characters long. Isn’t it too short for a brute force attack? Is it possible to launch a brute force attack against a WP blog?

  • they are just temp password 🙂 you should change it and make a new one when you get the blog online .

    There is nothing secure …

    Hey they are real safe man. But change it when u get the chance. lol… Safe passwords are a variance of numbers and charcters. such a password would be 1d2h78aujgbsn

    such a password would not be that, such a password would be:
    Qasd3j^+

    As for brute forcing. of course a person can launch a brute force attack– its the success rate that matters. The automatically generated passwords are done using the srand() function, I am assuming, so they ARE random and contain a nice mix of caps, numbers and chars, however that doesnt keep anyone from trying.
