For one (EMC), I had the need to sign onto their site to get some information.
I've not been on their site for over a year, so my password was not forthcoming.
Asked for a password reset, and all was fine, I got my temporary password in an e-mail.
Imagine my surprise when I went to a second EMC site, my new password didn't work. OK, I'll use their "password finder" function. And that is exaclt what it did. It found my password and e-mailed it to me in plain text.
You would think by now companies this big would have learnt from Sony's very public mistake.
It seems not in this instance.
