How important is it to have a different password for every site?

I’m trying to come up with a more superlative answer than “vital” or “essential” and I just can’t find one. “Necessary” and “mandatory” are up there as well.

Seriously, your critical sites for banking and investment can be at risk because one site is compromised. Don’t use online banking? Don’t buy anything online? I wouldn’t say you’re completely safe. Some simple analysis of your e-mail account and a creative and capable person can probably figure out where you bank and things can just roll down from there.

Just look at my previous post for suggestions on how to manage your passwords and do it immediately.
