This isn’t super huge news however periodically I do like to have a list of a dozen or so passwords handy to quickly try during tests. And since SplashData released this “Worst Passwords of 2012” list a few weeks ago from almost everything out there to date, I thought I’d post it as a future reference. You can also use the pic to the right for a quick look as well – it lists in 19 worst passwords from the 2011 version of this data set.

And of course Bill Brenner pointed out this hilarious clip in a related post on the topic of passwords. Wow … in 20 years we’ve progressed one digit.
Do you find things like this useful as a reference? If there are any other reference-type material you’d like to see blogged about, let us know in the comments below. Today’s post pic is from PBS.org. See ya!
