Passwords to skip next time you sign up for something

Standard

PHPBB had their passwords hacked last week. The Dark Reading security experts analyzed the passwords to see what common passwords are used. The article is interesting, as there are very common patterns among passwords. To make it easy, here is the top 20 passwords. AKA the ones to never ever use for anything that needs to be remotely secure. (But feel free to use these for BugMeNot)

  • 3.03% “123456”
  • 2.13% “password
  • 1.45% “phpbb
