Re: Alternate Method
Never thought of it like that. That does make sense to a certain extent. However, I think a password vault with algorithmic password generation may be the safest method because if you choose passwords that support life experiences it makes you more vulnerable to social engineering and dictionary attacks. I feel like every methodology has one flaw or another though.

Re: Alternate Method
A good method to follow is to create an alogorithm of your own.

Before that make a conscious decision to categorize he sites into two categories - those requiring financial information and those who dont. Have one set of passwords for sites needing credit card information and another set (can be all same) for other sites who dont.

Passwords are easy to remember as long as they are connected to an event in your life. With event date and place combo as password algorithm, it serves two purposes. It will help you to recall events with correct factual information and then help you to remember the password to be used for the site making it extremely difficult for the hackers to guess your password combos or algorithms. 

Same principle can be used for the userrnames unless the site forces you to use your email id as a login.

Alternate Method
It is never a good idea to keep the same passwords but then there is an issue with people remembering mutliple complex passwords. The same ideology for creating DNS (people can't remember all those numeric addresses) is the same reason people are using the same password. Its difficult to manage many logins with different password complexities.

There are alternate methods such as passwords vaults and SSO that can help with secure password management. Does anyone know of another way to easily yet securely manage your passwords?

CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
