An idiot's luggage

Analysis of 32 million actual passwords snarfed in a data breach at Rockyou.com.  The ten most popular passwords:

1. 123456
2. 12345
3. 123456789
4. Password
5. iloveyou
6. princess
7. rockyou
8. 1234567
9. 12345678
10. abc123


No wonder identity theft is growing so fast.  I'm just surprised that '********' didn't make the list.
