I was a bit astonished that, if I understand this correctly, even students get their essays written by others!? While I never even thought about it, I wonder where students get the money from nowadays – all papers are full of students drowning in student loan debt. Of course it is an promising tactic to start with the students as the account may well grow when the respective student graduates and then moves on to “greener pastures”! As for “system has a separate change password section” – I still see many companies actually storing the passwords themselves -however well protected and securely encrypted- on their servers. Why not just only save the calculated hash and each time a user logs on only compare the hash -recalculated from the password entered at log-on- with the hash stored. Whoever steals hashes cannot compromise the accounts as no one can regain the password from a hash – it only works one-way.
