This list will be helpful you to stay away from hackers and also act as a reference to remember the worst passwords list.
Password management application firm SplashData, has announced a list of the most common stolen passwords. This list compiled from common passwords that are posted by hackers.
In 2012, respectively “password,” “123456,” “12345678”got the first, second, and third place. But, some little changes in the last year “123456” moved into the number-one slot and “password” drop down one place, takes on #2.
October 2013, hackers acquired from 3 million of Adobe customers’ accounts. The attackers obtained accounts to Adobe IDs with invalid encrypted passwords. Very big thanks to Adobe, that confirmed a customer data breach a month in October. List of passwords from the Adobe breach had “123456” on #1, “12345678” on #2, and “password”.
This year’s SplashData result was most impact by the large number of Adobe users, explaining why the “adobe123” is at #10 and “photoshop” is at number 15.
CEO of SplashData, Morgan Slain said: “Seeing passwords like ‘adobe123’ and ‘photoshop’ on this list offers a good reminder not to base your password on the name of the website or application you are accessing.”
Hereafter, don’t follow to base your password on the website name. Weaker passwords are highly chance to affect from hackers and also more susceptible to brute-force attacks because weaker ones are the first to fall to cracking software.
Below, I have listed the top 25 worst passwords of 2013, according to SplashData. If any of your passwords are on this list, seriously think about making a change.
