Digital or cyber crimes are increasing at a very fast pace in the modern world despite the fact that organisations and security agencies are coming up with new and advanced techniques for safeguarding the public. This is happening because cyber criminals are also devising new ways to cheat people but the most common way because of which people get cheated is sharing of OTP (One Time Password).
Whatever OTP you get on your phone should not be shared with anyone neither in person nor on call. In the same manner, people are quite lazy or reluctant in keeping strong passwords of their accounts which further helps the hackers in hacking their accounts.
We need to ensure that our password should be such that nobody would be able to guess it but failure in keeping strong passwords results in data breach which is a big threat to an individual and to an organisation as well. Stockholm based firm, Specops Software has done a research after which it released a list of most commonly compromised passwords.
The company stated that “password”, “research”, “anandIGBZ”, “GGGGGGGG”, “cleopatra”, “passwordGG” and “0000000000” are quite easy for the hackers to crack.
Here is the list of top 10 most commonly compromised passwords:
