Twitter bannit 370 mots de passe

Sécurité

Désormais, on ne peut plus utiliser ‘aaaaaa’ ou ‘123456’ comme mots de passe sur Twitter. Pour des questions de sécurité.

La sécurité reste un problème crucial pour les plates-formes socialisantes. Pour renforcer celle de ses utilisateurs, Twitter interdit désormais l’usage de pas moins de 370 mots de passe jugés trop simplistes pour apporter un niveau de sécurité minimum à l’accès d’un compte.

La liste, révélée par le blog The Wundercounter, et reprise par TechCrunch, comprend notamment les expressions ‘111111’, ‘123456’, ‘aaaaaa’ (mais pas ‘bbbbbb’), ‘abc123’ ou encore des nom de villes (américaines principalement) ou de marques de voitures, des noms propres (‘jackson’, ‘freddy’, voire ‘batman’), etc. Même (surtout) ‘twitter’ a été banni. Bref, des termes trop faciles deviner pour les pirates et accessibles directement dans les sources de la page d’inscription du site (ainsi qu’à la fin de l’article).

Si l’un de ces 370 termes est utilisé lors de l’ouverture d’un compte sur Twitter, la page affiche alors la mention « trop évident » et interdit l’inscription. Un mot de passe “licite” mais qui ne figure pas dans la liste noire de Twitter sera accepté mais considéré comme faible.

On ignore cependant si cette liste est issue d’un « dictionnaire » de mots de passe édité par les cybercriminels ou bien si elle a été constituée par les équipes du site de micro-blogging en regard des usages les plus fréquents, notamment à travers les tentatives de piratage des comptes.

En d’autres termes, si vous avez ouvert un compte avec un mot de passe trop explicite, il est conseillé d’en changer pour renforcer la sécurité de votre compte. D’une manière générale, il est conseillé de mélanger lettres et chiffres, voire caractères spéciaux, sans chercher à leur donner une signification quelconque.
