If you are a GoToMyPC user and having trouble logging on, that's because all user passwords have been reset. Apparently, there were attempted attacks on the weak user passwords so Citrix decided to reset them all. Citrix posted a notice that stated an automated attack was trying various combinations of user names and passwords. The website has posted recommendations for a strong password.
- Don't use a word from the dictionary
- Select strong passwords that can't easily be guessed with 8 or more characters
- Make it Complex – Randomly add capital letters, punctuation or symbols
- Substitute numbers for letters that look similar (for example, substitute "0" for "o" or "3" for "E".
One thing not mentioned was not to use the same password for multiple sites. If you do, then a compromise of your password will impact multiple logins. Yet again, another example of why you need to use a password manager.
