[I hate] password aging, where Active Directory remembers all your previous passwords, and won't let you use them again. Seems like this could be exploited to help guess passwords elsewhere.

Active directory doesn't remember your passwords. Just the hashes of passwords.

That is an weak defense, if that's all you've got.

Here is a tool to return the plain text source, given a hash. All hackers need to do is try all the available hash algorithms (MD5, SHA1).

Password aging is a huge pain in the a55, and the longer anyone stays at the same job, the worse it gets.

We used to have a mandatory six month ageing of passwords, no way around it, which was a pain to everybody.
