If you use passwords that are common words, they are easy to guess. These links will lead you to find some of the most commonly used passwords, at least those that have been found by crackers and security experts.

In case anyone has played with the above lists, and is a little embarrassed about having chosen very common passwords, dont be. Apparently high-tech uber-geeks dont use very good passwords either. Not only do electronics engineers not use good passwords, but their professional association, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is not very good about protecting those weak passwords from casual web-surfers.
