If your #passwords are anything like these ones, make sure you change them ASAP!

Variations of 123456 helped keep the top 10 rounded up with numerals, with 12345678 leapfrogging qwerty to 3rdand 4th place respectively. 1qaz2wsx made a surprise new entrance at number 15 on the list. (look at your keyboard.
