123456 is the Most Popular Online Password and a Hacker’s Dream

What recent data breaches have shown is that we’re not good at creating passwords that are even remotely challenging to a hacker.  “123456” has replaced “password” as the most popular online password in the U.S.

After Target’s data breach, we recommended changing all online passwords, including bank and investment accounts, email, phone, bills, etc.  When doing so, think like a hacker and create passwords that are challenging and update them regularly.

Is the awesome life you always dreamed of
still somewhere over the rainbow?
