On Sunday, the password system of Gawker was hacked.  After examining more than 188,000 passwords, The Wall Street Journal published a list of the Top 50.

Here’s the Top 10:

  1. 123456
  2. password
  3. 12345678
  4. lifehack
  5. qwerty
  6. abc123
  7. 111111
  8. monkey
  9. consumer
  10. 12345
  11. 0
  12. letmein
  13. trustno1

More than 3,000 people had 123456 as their password. You’re asking to have your account hacked like that.
