    This comes as a surprise to you!?

    I used to work with a system where the default admin password was the admin username followed by two dots. The first place I worked with this system had a policy to change that password every month, and the password was distributed to the select few users who were allowed access to that system (and woe betide you if you ever told anyone else ).

    I then went to work as a contractor at a place using the same system, and they were very shirty about giving people the password (even though I needed it to do the work I'd been contracted for). I eventually managed to find the password myself - in a batch file on an unsecured share - and was a little surprised to find that, although they'd had the system for a couple of years, they were still using the default password. Yay security!

    I use this tool https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/password-generator/knnhdfnkjgioaabddhfidbenpoeccggp - makes it rather easy. If it needs to be human rememberable then I write a little phrase... like "HungryElephantLikeEatGrassOnFridays?" (not actually one I use).

    Re: News - The 106 forbidden passwords from the BlackBerry 10 OS

    Heh, #52. I use to use this when I was first introduced into the world of computing many many years ago. I guess i'll just have to do what 90% of the people do and just add a 1 on the end.

    Edit; #6 and #7 the same or am I blind?

    Edit 2; #66 I have a family member that actually uses this when he registers to non important forums, I didn't realise it was a popular choice.

    4 - 5 dictionary words in a phrase gives one of the best password entropies for complexity of human memory. There's even an xkcd about it

    I had a mate who used it as the default password for new domain accounts. Fortunately he was also wise enough to enforce password change on first login
