Truth to Power

How stupid is your password?

Analysis of 32 million breached passwords

Imperva released a study analyzing 32 million passwords exposed in the breach. The data provides a unique glimpse into the way that users select passwords and an opportunity to evaluate the true strength of these as a security mechanism.

“Everyone needs to understand what the combination of poor passwords means in today’s world of automated cyber attacks: with only minimal effort, a hacker can gain access to one new account every second–or 1000 accounts every 17 minutes,” explained Imperva’s CTO Amichai Shulman.

The report identifies the most commonly used passwords:

  1. 123456

  1. 12345

  1. 123456789

  1. Password

  1. iloveyou

  1. princess

  1. rockyou

  1. 1234567

  1. 12345678

  1. abc123</em>
