Hacktivist group Anonymous may have hit the headlines for its attacks on the websites of major companies, but a handy byproduct of its work is the revelation that “password” remains the top, well, password used by many people in their login details.

A list of the top 25 most commonly leaked passwords published by the group and other hackers also reveals that ‘123456’ and ‘12345678’ remain the second and third most used passwords respectively, and that ‘abc123’ has overtaken ‘qwerty’ in fourth place.
