Lets Talk Secure Passwords, or "What I Learned from Gawker"
123456, sound off! If you're one of over a million people who had your account information stolen this weekend, then that's most likely your password!
According to a article from PCWorld Gawker Hack Exposes Ridiculous Password Habits - PCWorld the most common passwords used are still some of the oldest, 123456, qwerty, password, and don't think being cute and changing it to passw0rd will help either.
Overall, if you want the most secure, uncrackable password ever, use a random combination of letters, numbers, and symbols about 128 characters in length. If that doesn't do it for you, nothing will.
As most of us don't have the time to type that in, try to get around 15 character combinations. Which is rather funny, as several sites I've been on won't allow you to have a password of more than 9 characters, ridiculous, no?
Anyways, if your password is on this list, then change it post haste, as some hacker out there is probably about to pass you the cheese.
