Perhaps they're still mourning Judi Dench's death in "Skyfall."
Perhaps they're remembering the words uttered in that movie that there are no secrets anymore.
It seems, though, that in some corners of British intelligence, password protection needs a little, well, protection.
A gentleman called Dan Farrall was rather stunned, you see, when he applied for a job at the U.K.'s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).
Among many other (secret) things, GCHQ exists to protect Kingdomites from cyberattacks. How odd, then, that it seems rather open about passwords.
