codeHave you ever wondered which passwords are most frequently used on the Web? Probably not, but now you can get an answer to this question. Imperva, a data security company, has just analyzed 32 million passwords that had been exposed in a recent hack and it came up with the 10 most used passwords.

In December 2009, an unknown individual hacked the RockYou Web site and gained access to all its 32 million users’ user names and passwords. After investigating the security breach, Imperva has analyzed all the exposed passwords and revealed the 10 most frequently used combinations. You might be surprised by the result. I was.

Top 10 passwords:

1. 123456
2. 12345
3. 123456789
4. Password
5. iloveyou
6. princess
7. rockyou *
8. 1234567
