The article gave me some good ideas for stronger replacements of our general "nothing" password used to secure our firewall and the customer database.
Here are some of the worst password list which any one should avoid......
I cannot convince my wife to have a strong password. At my work, I have to change my password every 3 months and it has to be strong.
So as long as I use "strongpassword" or "strongpassw0rd" I should be good, right?
As someone who works in the security industry the poor password management i see makes me so sad.
One place I worked many years ago had 1 password for absolutely EVERYTHING.
It was only 6 characters long.
Disaster waiting to happen.
I ran a password cracking program do obtain access to a device I purchased (and the manufacturer refused to provide me the root password). 30 minutes and I had it. alskdj123. It's amazing how insecure even manufacturers are!
beats one place I worked. Someone had all their usernames and passwords on a post it note on their monitor
you would be surprised.....also under the keyboard is such a better hiding place.
How stupid! I only write the first five letters on the post it note. And since the last three letters are always ABC, it is still easy
So you guys are saying "donthackme" isn't a strong enough password?? . I should probably change that...
momdad is also a common pswrd.
One of our big banks here will only allow a maximum 6 numerical password/code for their online banking...tells you how much they care about security.
That it's very scary!
Proudly their most common password is: 123456!
Just discovered the use of a very secure one here at the office: Null00
How about birthdate password?
I like monkey on #6
