The Top Ten (10) Most Common (Perhaps, the Worst) Passwords Registered at Gawker Media

Gizmodo.com is one of my favorite gadget blogs, as well as Lifehacker.com for computer and internet tips and tricks.
It only appears silly thousands of users or readers under the Gawker Media network registered account passwords that even a first grader can guess. Though the scenario is not impossible to happen for other sites that require users to register accounts, it only turns out Gawker Media servers were compromised few days ago and the usernames and passwords scoured from its database have been leaked to the web. Interestingly, The Wall Street Journal analyzed the data and we are able to get the top ten (10) most common passwords, or even the worst passwords ever registered on Gawker Media Network. You want to guess? Don’t bother… Here are those:

1. 123456
2. password
3. 12345678
4. lifehack
5. qwerty
6. abc123
7. 111111
8. monkey
9. consumer
10. 12345

Perhaps, owners of these passwords haven’t stumbled on Lifehacker’s guide to choose great passwords – have they? Or they just really don’t care with their online security. What ‘ya think?
