These Are The Top Ten Most Hackable Passwords: AVOID USING THESE

posted by:@mdanielsradio

Think you've got a password that no one would ever guess? Based on a new survey out of the UK, you may want to reexamine that assessment. The National Cyber Security Centre looked at internet passwords from around the globe that hackers had been able to crack, and it found that certain first names, sports teams, variations of the word "password," swear words, and simple series of numbers were the most commonly breached, with an example of the latter—123456, used by more than 23 million accounts—taking the top spot. Advice from an NCSC spokesman: Combine "three random but memorable words." Check out which other inadvisable passwords made the NCSC's Top 10 List:

  1. 123456
  2. 12345
  3. password1
  4. 1234567
  5. abc123
  6. 12345678
  7. 111111
  8. password
  9. qwerty
  10. 123456789
