Warning New password

Unless you change your password back again to what it was before this exercise, it will be "P6p3.aa!". Change your password after this exercise!

Note that some systems might not allow to recycle passwords, i.e. restore the original one within a certain amount of time or a certain amount of password changes, or both.
