Your password must be at least 18770 characters long

Courtesy of Digg, the next time your users complain about your egregious security policies, point out this handy Microsoft KB article regarding Windows 2000 authentication against an MIT Kerberos domain.

The specific message returned is:

"Your password must be at least 18770 characters and cannot repeat any of your previous 30689 passwords. Please type a different password. Type a password that meets these requirements in both text boxes."
Who says that 30 day password changes longer than 8 characters are so bad? This is almost as much fun as Compaq's "Where do I find the any key" article.
