@coryw yeah I've seen that exact issue at $WORK, folks with bad password hygiene and they wonder why they get continuously compromised
We enforce an expiration, though as of late last year IIRC NIST no longer recommends that specific practice, in favor of requiring longer passwords.
Our issue is mostly people falling for phishing scams. It's exactly like the poster of the link describes.
@coryw ah, I wish we could feasibly enforce password policies but we are a hosting provider with unmanaged services
to be fair to some of our managed customers, it more often outdated WordPress versions/plugins being compromised
