Breach Compilation Password Analysis

Submitted by jabrown on Wed, 01/10/2018 - 02:02

Sometime in late November and early December someone released a compilation of past breached credentials, which totaled in approximately 1.4 billion credentials.

 

We have completed our analysis of the credentials in the data dump and found that about 97% of the passwords found in the dump are between 1 and 16 characters in length and the majority of characters used are lowercase alphanumeric characters.

 

 

During the analysis we also created a wordlist sorted with the common passwords at the top. The ten most common passwords should not surprise anyone that has been reading about common passwords or reports on past password disclosures.

 

The ten most common passwords found in this compilation of breach data ,excluding any whitespace or blank lines, are:

123456

123456789

qwerty

password

111111

12345678

abc123

1234567

password1

1234567890
