It’s been a painful few weeks for Adobe, as their network was compromised and over 150 million usernames and passwords of their customers were leaked online. In a fun (but quite scary) twist, a HackerNews member has created a crossword of the most popular leaked passwords.
A list of the most common passwords used for Creative Cloud accounts was released a few weeks ago which exposed just how insecure most users’ passwords are. As noted by the creator of the password crossword it’s best to use a tool to generate the password for you; “the current best practice for passwords is to generate a unique random password for every login and use a password management service such as KeePass, RoboForm, or LastPass.”
