Would you give your password to a stranger with a camera?

We have been saying for years that one of the biggest problems password security (if you can call it that) is that every time you use it, you give away your secret, meaning it is no longer a secret and no longer secure! 

This week the Mirror has published online a video taken from the Jimmy Kimmel show in the US that, whilst very amusing, hits home with a very strong message - passwords are simply not secure.

  1. When I click the link in the post, in Firefox, I get:

    "This Connection is Untrusted / You have asked Firefox to connect securely to mail.mccint.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure".

    Is this a test to see whether HTTPS is secure, because people ignore warnings, or just a configuration problem?
