MySpace Passwords

From an old post of security expert Bruce Schneier’s dealing with MySpace passwords:

Common Passwords: The top 20 passwords are (in order): password1, abc123, myspace1, password, blink182, qwerty1, fuckyou, 123abc, baseball1, football1, 123456, soccer, monkey1, liverpool1, princess1, jordan23, slipknot1, superman1, iloveyou1 and monkey. (Different analysis here.)


What in the nine hells is blink182 doing as a top-20 password? Not only that, but it’s the fifth-most common password on MySpace as of late last year.

Wow.

This is how emo stereotypes get started.
