I need some help with probabilities. Anyone on that feels comfortable giving me a hand?

Cool, so my issue is as follows.

I generate an 8 character alphanumeric sequence.

Then I generate another.

If its assumed to be random, what are the odds that any of the characters match up?

For example, the first might be - a b c d 1 2 3 4

The second might be - a 1 f f f g g g

What are the probabilities for 1 character overlapping? 2? 3? all 8?

Order not regarded of course.
