I had to laugh when reading the “25 Worst Passwords” article published in ADMIN – Network & Security Magazine (issue 06). Here are the top five:

  1. password
  2. 123456
  3. 12345678
  4. qwerty
  5. abc123

Other lovely passwords included

  • letmein
  • trustno1

Do I need to tell you that I used the number one password for several years… not that long ago. I still cannot believe that I am not the only fool around! Have you done something that silly? Let us know I am sure we will all benefit from it.
