If You Are Using One Of These as a Password You Should Stop Doing So Immediately

aaThanks to the folks at SplashData, we are treated to a humbling list of passwords which have been aptly titled the “Worst Passwords of 2013.”
According to SplashData, this year’s list was influenced by the large number of passwords from Adobe users posted online by security consulting firm Stricture Consulting Group following Adobe’s well publicized security breach.

 Real simple message here, if you are using one of these please stop doing so.  Without further ado, here is the full list.
