The best of the best that excels & outshine everyone in their own field are awarded nice trophies n heft price monies amidst pomp & funfare like the Oscar's, Grannies, SAMA in South Africa & the soccer star of the year award in Zimbabwe quickly comes into mind. People want to be recognized, appreciated and validated what of then do we make of the mischevious, notorous internet trolls familiarly known as hackers & the many people who continue to put themselves at risk by using weak, easily guessable passwords.
SplashData's came up with a brilliant idea of identifying top 25 worst password's list which is compiled from a treasure trove of files containing millions of stolen passwords posted online by hackers. Its official “123456” is finally getting some time in the spotlight as the world's worst password, after spending years in the shadow of “password.” which was dominating the rankings. Stupid, careless, stuborn,silly bunch of "WEAK PASSWORD" fans who can’t be bothered to take even the most basic step to protect their online personal information won't be amused & shacken with this news.
