VIDEO: BBC News reveals password on-air

Oh dear.


Did you happen to see the BBC News at Ten on Sunday night?

Don’t worry if you missed it - I managed to grab the relevant section and turn it into a YouTube video:

Of course, just knowing a password doesn’t mean that it can necessarily be exploited by anyone remotely.

It’s quite possible that the password is for the purpose of logging into the physical desktop computer itself, but still… you have reduced the point of a password if you’ve stuck it on the very device which needs the password.

If you would like me to make more videos, please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel.
