Worst passwords (on your network right now)

The fifth-annual Worst Passwords List put out by SplashData is here and the findings aren't terribly surprising. Here are the top five:

#1: 123456
#2: password
#3: 12345
#4: 12345678
#5: qwerty
 
Good stuff! What's that quote about insanity? 

One of those security basics that we'll likely continue to ignore until the end of time. That's alright, as some of the best sideline analysts will proclaim: we need not focus on such trivial things. Well, they have a point. After all, there are really cool technologies people can spend tons of money on instead. It's that kind of investment that makes it look like things are happening in and around IT!
