Nick's Favorite Question

List all the ways you can think of that a bad guy could obtain your password.

-dictionary attack
-phishing
-malware / keylogger steals the password
 (malware first gets in as a trojan or vulnerability)
-get password from another site where the foolish victim re-used the password

More marginal ideas:
-social eng: bad guys trick you into revealing the password
-camera or shoulder surf - watch the victim type in password
-break into site, steal the password from it (not sure if this counts)
