OMG! World’s Most Hacked Passwords Revealed
Recently, the NCSC, of course, The National Center for Cybersecurity of the United Kingdom has recently, revealed the world’s most ‘hacked’ passwords.
As the survey carried out by the center simply shows that many users do not know how to avoid being victims of cybercrime since 42% of those interviewed expect to lose money due to electronic fraud. At the same time, only 15% know how to protect themselves from harmful internet activities.
While the study concludes that less than half of respondents use a secure password, most of which are very easy to guess, and accompanied their conclusions with a list of the 100000 most ‘hacked’ passwords.
However, the most interesting thing is that ‘123456’ is the least secure password of all time, as it was used by 23.2 million people who were victims of cybercriminals. Followed by the ‘123456789’ and ‘qwerty’, of course, the first letters of the upper line of the keyboard, the word ‘password’ and ‘1111111’.
Moreover, the latest report simply warns that it is dangerous to use the name of our football teams or our favorite bands to protect your confidential data on the internet, as day by day cybercriminals are simply getting smart.
While more than 280,000 British Internet users who used the word ‘liverpool’ as a password were victims of a ‘hack’. In the ‘top 3’ of the names of football teams used to protect personal data, ‘chelsea’ and not only that even ‘arsenal’ also appeared on the list.
Among the names of bands used as unsafe passwords, the first position is simply occupied by the ‘Blink 182′, ’50 cent’,’Eminem’,’Metallica’ and ‘Slipknot’. While Superman was also revealed as the most popular character among the names used in passwords, followed by Naruto, Tigger, Pokemon, and Batman.
Moreover, the technical director of the center, of course, Ian Levy, advised that “Be creative and use memorable words for you, so that people can not guess your password,”.
