Subject: On Last.fm breach from 2012

Some information about the 2012 Last.fm breach.


* article in Techcrunch [1], and corresponding Hacker News discussion [2]

* list of the longest (up to 46 characters) cracked passwords from the
breach [3], and corresponding Hacker News discussion [4]

The main takeaway is that the passwords that they managed to crack were,
as expected, very predictable, and trying to be smart (keyboard walks,
song titles, typos).
