Worst Passwords Of 2012

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the worst passwords of 2012. Number one on the list....your password. big grin

Unchanged from last year, the three most popular passwords for 2012 were "password," "123456," and "12345678," according to SplashData's annual "25 Worst Passwords of the Year" list. The list was compiled from files containing millions of stolen passwords posted online by hackers. But that isn't to say that our choices have stagnated; new entries to the list this year include "welcome," "Jesus," "ninja," "mustang," and "password1."
