Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

The movie Hackers claimed the most used passwords were password, God and secret.  Looks like they only got one right.

Here are the top 5 passwords according to Counterpane Internet Security:

  1. password1
  2. abc123
  3. myspace1
  4. password
  5. blink182

3 and 5 really surprised me.
