According to "cnet", according to a new list of the worst passwords of 2013 from security-focused developer SplashData that lists "123456" as the most common and new worst password on the Internet, unseating "password," which topped the previous year's list.

The list was compiled from data dumps of stolen passwords posted online, and the firm says it was especially influenced by the millions of Adobe accounts that were compromised in the fall. Stricture Consulting Group attempted to decrypt the leaked Adobe passwords and released an estimate that almost 2 million of the more than 130 million users affected by the breach appeared to be using "123456" as a password.

Passwords like 'adobe123' and 'photoshop' also make SplashData's top 25 list thanks to the breadth of the Adobe hack.

The list also reveals that people using keys like 'letmein' and 'trustno1' aren't nearly as clever and unique as they might think.

To better protect your data without memorizing myriad strings of nonsense numbers, letters and symbols, SplashData recommends passwords that contain random words separated by spaces or characters like this bit of Yoda-speak: "trolls_jobs_need" or "Crave_love_I_do."
