I have wondered about this. I chose a simple password for my Mint Mate installation because I have to use it so often.
What are my security risks? and how would I be compromised?

base64 obfuscation makes bad passwords however... But why python when you can simply do:

Code: Select all

echo "<coded_text>" | base64 -d
