What’s your PaSsWoRd?
Lorelle VanFossen, writing in The Blog Herald, has a list of the most commonly used passwords.
- Middle name
- Names spelled backwards
- Phone numbers
- The word “password”
- Single or combination uses of love, god, sex, and money, such as lovemoney or sexgod
- car license
Also, according to Roger Grimes of InfoWorld, quoted in the same piece, there are many Christian sounding – like, for example, ilovejesus – logon usernames combined with the worst-sounding cuss words.
The conclusion is that in the vast majority of cases, it is fairly easy to guess the passwords of most users.
