Bletchley Park Password Fail

In order to register for the ACCU Autumn Conference (Security; Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) which is being held at Bletchley Park on 7th November I needed to create an account on the Bletchley Park web site.

Given the association of Bletchley Park with the history of both computers and security issues, and the subject of the conference, it was with some astonishment that I discovered that the first thing the web site did after I registered was to email me a plain text copy of my chosen password… Security Fail!

Despite that I would of course encourage people to come to the conference – it has a great speaker line-up and will benefit a very good cause.
