The hackers who stole and published 33 million passwords from the Rockyou.com
website in December needn't have bothered, a security company has revealed. Many
of them were so trivial they could have been guessed anyway.
According to a new analysis of the hacked passwords, the most popular
password used on the Rockyou site was '123456'. Ridiculously, the second most
popular password was '12345' closely followed (in order) by '12345687', 'Password',
'iloveyou', 'princess', and the imaginative 'rockyou'.
