In The Witness, Elizabeth Fitch is the daughter of a controlling and cold mother who is a famous surgeon.  When her mother is away at a medical conference, Elizabeth changes her appearance, makes fake IDs for herself and her friend and they go out to one of the hottest night clubs in the area.  They drink too much and meet two Russian men who take them back to their house.  However, when they get there two other Russian men come and murder her friend and one of the Russian men that brought her there.  Elizabeth escapes and goes into a witness protection program.

Here’s the hard truth: your password, well, it’s no good.  Does it include a word found in the dictionary, a name, a date, or even numbers that look like letters (e=3, I-1, o=0, etc.)?  Yup, no good.  Do you use the same password for some or even all your websites?  Tsk, tsk.  The practice of password cracking has never been easier thanks to a number of landfall events for hackers, namely the release into the public of numerous huge password databases from hacked websites and the development of more advanced and specialized tools.
