    Default 25 "Worst Passwords" of 2011 Revealed

    If you see your password below, STOP!

    Do not finish reading this post and immediately go change your password -- before you forget. You will probably make changes in several places since passwords tend to be reused for multiple accounts.

    Here are two lists, the first compiled by SplashData:

    1. password

    2. 123456

    3.12345678

    4. qwerty

    5. abc123

    6. monkey

    7. 1234567

    8. letmein

    9. trustno1

    10. dragon

    11. baseball

    12. 111111

    13. iloveyou

    14. master

    15. sunshine

    16. ashley

    17. bailey

    18. passw0rd

    19. shadow

    20. 123123

    21. 654321

    22. superman

    23. qazwsx

    24. michael

    25. football

    Last year, Imperva looked at 32 million passwords stolen from RockYou, a hacked website, and released its own Top 10 "worst" list:

    1. 123456

    2. 12345

    3. 123456789

    4. Password

    5. iloveyou

    6. princess

    7. rockyou

    8. 1234567

    9. 12345678

    10. abc123

    If you've gotten this far and don't see any of your passwords, that's good news. But, note that complex passwords combining letters and numbers, such as passw0rd (with the "o" replaced by a zero) are starting to get onto the 2011 list. abc123 is a mixed password that showed up on both lists.

    Last year, Imperva provided a list of password best practices, created by NASA to help its users protect their rocket science, they include:

    It should contain at least eight characters

    It should contain a mix of four different types of characters - upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, and special characters such as !@#$%^&*,;" If there is only one letter or special character, it should not be either the first or last character in the password.

    It should not be a name, a slang word, or any word in the dictionary. It should not include any part of your name or your e-mail address.

    Following that advice, of course, means you'll create a password that will be impossible, unless you try a trick credited to security guru Bruce Schneir: Turn a sentence into a password.

    For example, "Now I lay me down to sleep" might become nilmDOWN2s, a 10-character password that won't be found in any dictionary.

    Can't remember that password? Schneir says it's OK to write it down and put it in your wallet, or better yet keep a hint in your wallet. Just don't also include a list of the sites and services that password works with. Try to use a different password on every service, but if you can't do that, at least develop a set of passwords that you use at different sites.

    Someday, we will use authentication schemes, perhaps biometrics, that don't require so much jumping through hoops to protect our data. But, in the meantime, passwords are all most of us have, so they ought to be strong enough to do the job.

    If you're interested in password security, this is worth reading:

    "It is 10 times more secure to use 'this is fun' as your password, than 'J4fS<2'."
