Making the Internet better, one site at a time

Sometime ago my friend @omervk and myself created Plain Text Offenders - a wall of shame for websites that store and email your own password to you in plaintext. I didn’t expect this kind of explosion - hundreds of submissions already posted and dozens of new ones arriving every day!

I have just learned that Smashing Magazine have contacted us about the post on the wall of shame, saying that they took care of the issue, and no longer email plaintext passwords! Of course, we happily obliged by amending the original post.

Way to go, Smashing Magazine! We hope that more and more sites will take notice, and then take steps to make the Internet a better and safer place for all of us.
