Gawker Hack Exposes Ridiculous Password Habits

Gawker Media, if you aren't aware, is a publication group that runs gossip blog Gawker (no big surprise there) along with a slew of other websites like Lifehacker, Gizmodo, and Jezebel.

Long story short, the hackers danced away with boatloads of secrets, including the e-mail addresses and passwords of more than a million Gawker users (and some Gawker staff members, too). Now, we're getting a glimpse at just how absurdly poor some of those passwords were.

The story is too old to be commented.

Haha this is funny, I've used '123456' and 'password' on a few accounts, especially with those where I don't really care about since I won't store any personal info. It's just convenient.
