Most stolen computer passwords released

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The list of 2015’s most stolen computer passwords is out.

Splash Data, a security applications company, reviewed a list of millions of stolen passwords made public over the year.

The most popular one will remind you of a scene from Spaceballs.

“123456” is once again in the top spot. “Password” remained the number two password that was stolen.

Sports passwords returned for another season in 2015. The word “football” was number seven and “baseball,” number 10.

Anticipation for the new Star Wars movie led to “Star Wars” at 25, “Solo” at 23 and “Princess” at 21.
