comment How does hacking work?
For example, if you visit the feed of questions of the PHP label at Stack Exchange at any given point, and this is very real, some 40 to 50% of the new questions on the first page will contain a php+mysql combination that is vulnerable to sql injections — and it's not rare for this kind of code to be found in small/medium sized businesses (until it breaks, of course)

comment How does hacking work?
I realize the discussion is several months old, but @Pacerier I'm pretty sure a large % of what's on the internet is not written by experienced developers. That's why sql injection is still a reality, it's trivial to take care of if you know what you are doing, but there are lots of people who don't.

comment Is howsecureismypassword.net safe to use?
Just do exactly what @styfle suggests and you'll be safe. Never input any password in a "password checker" site without disabling your connection first to be on the safe side.

comment “Username and/or Password Invalid” - Why do websites show this kind of message instead of informing the user which one was wrong?
@lazfish but then you could just show the usual "username or password wrong" message and call it a day, it's pretty much the same.
