Using my own brute attack program I am able to show what is and what isn't a good choice for a password.
Depending on the activity that comes from this I will do a couple more videos that show how to make a brute force attack program so that you can test for yourselves as well as how to make a "pacifier", or a very strong random password generator.

Because of sufficient interest I have added a link to my source code that is viewable online. It gives a user the ability to test a password up to 12 character as a brute attack test and any number of characters for a dictionary attack test. In order to perform dictionary attack test you will need to download link with rar that has the source code and a file that has a dictionary of passwords.


(*I created a link to my source code that is viewable online as to avoid any accusations of downloaded viruses. You can see the code for yourself and, if you have any programming ability, should be able to copy it into an editor, save it as a cpp, and compile/run it. Cheers!)
