The Dota2 designers have recognized the hack and reset the passwords for all gathering client accounts.

A strong password generator program with source code

In my previous post https://steemit.com/programming/@royalmacro/a-free-open-source-data-encryption-program-for-steemit-users I share a data encrypton tool with source code, now, today here I share another program, a strong password generator with source code. This program will generate strong, hard-to-guess passwords. I’ll do it by hashing together “domain name”, “login/user id” & “a secure master key”.
If you use the same secure master key for every password generations then you do not need to write down or, memorize your generated passwords. When you need your password then repeat the same procedure to re-generate it. If your “domain name”, “login/user id” & “a secure master key” are not different then you will generate the same password. If you use only one secure master key then you have to only memorize your master key, not the passwords. Lets try it ! Step by Step Development : Open a new project in Visual Basic 8. Select “Standard EXE”.

LINES by an unknown author

image credit I just found this poem in a very old book in our local library. There is no author name. I share it here :                         LINES The stars are dim, the moon shines cold, A gentle breeze sweeps o'er the lea, And softly falls the rippling sea,  On jutting reef and headland bold.
The chaffinch, eldest child of May, Impatient in his nest awakes, And with his rustling pinion shakes,  The dew that gems the hawthorn spray.
By mountain paths to pastures new, The lonely shepherd leads his flock, Light wreaths of mist on stream and rock,  Spread filmy veils of softest blue.
O ye, who through the slow-paced night, Have watched and wept, lift up lour eyes, Soon shall the golden morning rise, And crown the eastern hills with light.
