    Common Passwords That Hackers Love

    Common passwords that hackers love

    Back at the dawn of the Web, the most popular account password was "12345."


    Today, it's one digit longer but hardly safer: "123456."

    Despite all the reports of Internet security breaches over the years, including the recent attacks on Google's e-mail service, many people have reacted to the break-ins with a shrug.

    According to a new analysis, one out of five Web users still decides to leave the digital equivalent of a key under the doormat: they choose a simple, easily guessed password like "abc123," "iloveyou" or even "password" to protect their data. More:

    Not too long ago a nationalist dating site was hacked. They published most of the informations of the members, including pictures, private messages, profiles and, of course, their passwords. The most common password was this numerical order '123456'. And the next most common was '1488' .

    I wonder how many skadians are just as clever..
    The Indians did not stop the flood of immigrants - today they live in reservations.
