Superman, meanwhile, is the most popular fictional character name used as a password.
The analysis by the UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) uncovered the gaps in cyber-knowledge that may leave people in danger of being exploited.
The six-digit login has topped the list of the worst passwords since 2011. "Be creative and use words memorable to you, so people can't guess your password", he added. "In such deployments, attackers have been able to breach the corporate network and move laterally to the internal network due to poor network segmentation, where a single weak point (such as a password from one of these lists on a box in a DMZ) has enabled traversal".
The findings revealed that 123456 was the most widely-used password on breached accounts.

While passwords may change, look for Blink-182 to see their profile raise even more as the year continues.
Security researcher Troy Hunt, whose website Have I Been Pwned allows users to check if any of their accounts have been compromised in a data breach, helped compile the list of breached passwords.
While 89% use the internet to make online purchases, with 39% doing so on a weekly basis, only 15% said they know a great deal about how to protect themselves from harmful activity.
You can also start to follow a few simple guidelines for protecting yourself against cyber attacks. "The NCSC hopes to reduce the risk of further breaches by building awareness of how attackers use easy-to-guess passwords, or those obtained from breaches and protect users". If you don't want to use that, you can use alpha-numeric passwords.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
