Quick take: top ten worst passwords

This makes interesting reading – it’s a report, sponsored by those good people at Imperva, about password worst practices. It’s got some sage advice too, for anyone who wants to know how to get a bit better at setting passwords.

Her’s the top 10 – personally I’m surprised that swear words don’t figure, but that’s small consolation.

1. 123456
2. 12345
3. 123456789
4. Password
5. iloveyou
6. princess
7. rockyou
8. 1234567
9. 12345678
10. abc123

Take a look at the full report here.

P.S. There may be a longer take on whether Imperva *should* have conducted the analysis, but perhaps that one’s for history to decide!
