how do hackers hack passwords

I had a quick count-up. I’ve got about 40 or 50 username/password combos in my private life (and still more for my work, which thankfully uses a secure password system. Phew.) So when I recently learned that 40% of us would rather scrub a toilet than change a password, whilst I concede that it may depend on the state of the toilet, I’d go along with that. It would be quicker and more satisfying to wipe the porcelains of an entire tower block than have to systematically hunt down and change them all.
