As Time points out, it's been a banner year for hacks, from Equifax's totally avoidable breach to Yahoo's eventual admission that all 3 billion accounts were compromised. SplashData ran an analysis of some 5 million leaked passwords to come up with its list of the 100 most used, and, therefore, "Worst Passwords of the Year." Lifehackerreports that SplashData projects that 1 in 10 computer users have used at least of the passwords on the list. Many are frequent offenders, and will come as no surprise. The top 5 is, as you might expect: 123456, Password, 12345678, qwerty, and 12345. But some that make the list are seemingly more random or quirky. We've flagged 20 such entries, and note their rank on the list.
