Its easy to guess most peoples passwords if you know them. Its usually their name, the dogs name, the kids name, birth date etc. I can picture that jack munky sitting there with outlook, punching in names ad dates for hours.

Greedy people are disgusting.

Its called Brute Force hacking. If you know the login the password is easy to get.
Its an automated process so he wouldn't have had to sit and think about anything. There are plenty of Trojan horses that will ride in gather up your information and travel across a network until it finds a computer vulnerable enough to let it out.
