123456? That’s the kind of password an idiot would have on his dummy account he had to create just to find out postage costs for a parcel on a poorly designed website luggage.

Are these passwords on accounts people care about getting hacked?

These are so intriguing, and it makes me wonder if these are the result of some grouping of passwords at an organization. Is it possible some IT department somewhere used the same password when setting up admin accounts on thousands of employee machines?

I like using Ancient Egyptian words and phrases as passwords.
