The Top 500 Worst Passwords of All Time

November 30th, 2008 by admin in News, Password Info

From the moment people started using passwords, it didn’t take long to realize how many people picked the very same passwords over and over. Even the way people misspell words is consistent. In fact, people are so predictable that most hackers make use of lists of common passwords just like these. To give you some insight into how predictable humans are, the following is a list of the 500 most common passwords. If you see your password on this list, please change it immediately. Keep in mind that every password listed here has been used by at least hundreds if not thousands of other people.

There are some interesting passwords on this list that show how people try to be clever, but even human cleverness is predictable. For example, look at these passwords that I found interesting:

ncc1701 The ship number for the Starship Enterprise
thx1138 The name of George Lucas’s first movie, a 1971 remake of an earlier student project
qazwsx Follows a simple pattern when typed on a typical keyboard
666666 Six sixes
7777777 Seven sevens
ou812 The title of a 1988 Van Halen album
8675309 The number mentioned in the 1982 Tommy Tutone song. The song supposedly caused an epidemic of people dialing 867- 5309 and asking for “Jenny”

“…Approximately one out of every nine people uses at least one password on the list shown in Table 9.1! And one out of every 50 people uses one of the top 20 worst passwords..”

Lists the top 500 worst passwords of all time, not considering character case. Don’t blame me for the offensive words; you were the ones who picked these, not me.

    The number zero appears twice. Other than that, a darned interesting list.

    On the comment that the number zero shows up twice, I would have to bet that is a formatting issue. With most spreadsheets, “000″ or “0000000″ would be converted to “0″ by default. So if this had been stuck into a spreadsheet that was not formatted as “text,” this conversion would have taken place automatically.

    What happened to the password “Susan”. Once upon a time, it was the most popular. I don’t see “pwd” either.

    I was one of first people to be hit by the password police back in about 1980. I was writing documentation for DEC and discovered that a was a legal password on our operating system, 0 to 6 characters, so I went to it for about a week until the system people caught up with me.

    Yesterday A few of my friends and I had a party at someone’s home (without the homeowner there) and we instantly guessed his password for the computer because it refers to something we always remind him of

    it’s not a top 500 type, not even a top 1000000 type pass, but it was still easy

    Huh? You see, a hacker will likely try these 500 passwords, and then move on to their next potential victim. Maybe they will try more like 5000, but the less common your password is, the safer it is. Ideally, your password will be unique, and not on any list at all.

    “what’s really surprising (and effed up) is #5.”

    Fucked up? Maybe. Surprising? I don’t think so.

    My biggest pet peeve is the really large websites that try to overcompensate on the password perimiters by making you have 1)at least 8 characters 2)one capital letter 3)one number. To me that just seems like most people will try to copy the example one given.

    on January 4th, 2009 at 6:30 pm

    it is interesting how “pussy” is #5, while “pussies” is #294 and “cock” is #295 (also that “cunt” is #339)
    comparing that with “boobs” & “tits” #254 & #256 respectively

    also i agree with the comment about “god” and “sex” would have been within top 3 if shorter passwords were considered.

    When I managed IT support for about 2500 users in a division, I asked my security staff to create a list of all passwords that existed for more than 10 users. I remember the top 5 very well. I slightly modified them, but they were basically these:
    1. Jesus#1 (literally 100+ users used this password)
    2. NYGiants#1
    3. NYYankees#1
    4. NYMets#1
    5. IloveJesus! (or the variation IlOveJesus! with a zero)

    I can’t trust any list of passwords that doesn’t include Jesus or sports-related passwords)

    I thought “Secret” would be a lot higher up on the list. From my unix door knocking days on campus the default accounts (cough) sometimes were STILL THERE. Thankfully most students were Windows or Apple and had no clue that those accounts even existed. I sure had fun getting in that way.

    I learned many moons ago to use a minimal 6 characters and mix it numbers, letters and symbols if you can. It’s nice NOT to see any of my passwords current or past on the list. Why people use words I cannot understand. dictionary is the first source for brute force hacking.

    Is it just me, or is the math a bit screwed up? Or maybe just made up – I couldn’t find any links to sources among the annoying and stunningly irrelevant AdBrite links auto-inserted in the post.

    “…Approximately one out of every nine people uses at least one password on the list shown in Table 9.1! And one out of every 50 people uses one of the top 20 worst passwords..”

    Some back of the envelope calcs say that with about 1.5 billion computer users worldwide (estimated based on info from clickz.com and inc.com), 30 million people use one of the top 20, so if they were evenly distributed each of those top 20 passwords would be used by 1.5 million people, not “hundreds if not thousands”. Another 136,666,667 people would be using the remaining 480 from the list, averaging 284,722 people for each password.

(…And no, ‘bumble bee sting’ is NOT one of mine; this was just an example). Actually, none of mine are on the list. =)

    Well, I didn’t find my Main password, but I found my back-up one: sans the numbers. I used to have to reset passwords, but I also had to change mine every month, just like the riff-raff. One company I worked for required at least one letter and one number, but it tracked the passwords for 2 years so we couldn’t recycle ours. Couple other restrictions as well. Say password was 29word, you couldn’t do the next month 30word because too many similarities. so one month I’d use 29word, then word30, then 31word (it allowed that variation) I went 5 years just bumping and changing locations. Still use the same word for my current stuff, and no one’s able to figure it out because there’s nothing indicating it.

    What’s objectifying and repugnant is how you produce a gross stereotype about the male psyche with no better evidence than a generic list of passwords that not only possess no categorization by gender (therefore you egregiously drew your own conclusions), but also has no citation whatsoever. Your antics are what give feminism its poor reputation.

    I would like to know from where these passwords were obtained. I suspect that the top 500 would differ quite at bit depending on whether the password collection came from an online sex site, gmail, a banking site, new york times online or peoples’ work passwords. To not include that info lessens the effective usefulness of the above article. To get a really useful list it would have to be compiled from many password databases and not just one. The above might be, but I can’t tell from the article.

    “Ah. I was just scrolling down to comment on the fuckedupedness of number five. I see someone beat me to it. Guess I shouldn’t be surprised, though. No one ever lost the farm betting on the objectifying repugnance of the male sex drive.”

    first of all, how do you know males chose those passwords? you don’t. your conclusions are based on speculation and are therefore void when attemting to criticize the “repugnance of the male sex drive”. these passwords could easily have been chosen by women trying to be unpredictable or whatever the case may be. and besides, the male sex drive is not repugnant. sure it may seem so to many/most women, but its what has kept our species alive. without the male sex drive, we would not be here to criticize it. back in the day (way back, like cave men back) reproduction was the man’s choice, and without his sex drive, reproduction would not have occured often enough to produce sufficient populations to survive.
