Is Your Password Common?

Back in December I blogged about using concrete passwords so it is not easy to have your sites hacked into.

This morning I woke up to a Yahoo! news article about how so many people are still using simple passwords.

"According to a new analysis, one out of five Web users still decides to leave the digital equivalent of a key under the doormat: they choose a simple, easily guessed password like "abc123," "iloveyou" or even "password" to protect their data."

In fact, check this out;a list of 32 million passwords that an unknown hacker stole last month from RockYou, a company that makes software for users of social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, was briefly posted on the Web, and hackers and security researchers downloaded it.

Time to rethink your password???
