Understand I am in IT Security.

No password is unbreakable (It just takes time and desire).

Many computer systems store end user passwords in clear text.

Worst case senario if the password database is encrypted and I can get it I could use a rainbow table to break the hash and gain access. (This was part of the RSA attack.)

Having one password for everything is a VERY VERY BAD IDEA.
