• Nearly half a million Hot mail hacked accounts

    Nearly half a million Yahoo users, Hot mail hacked accounts

    Hotmail has become the latest online service provider to be humiliated by hackers, as more than 450,000 Yahoo Voices login and password users have been hacked.

    The culprit claims to be a wake-up call for Yahoo and Internet giants to further strengthen data security. The reason is that hackers can easily access this sensitive data with just a normal SQL attack. "The Hotmail service is overly secure and does not require complex password strings," the prosecutor said.

    NET has surveyed passwords appearing at the highest frequency of 450,000 passwords revealed by the scandal. Accordingly, the most common password is 123456. Other popular options include the word "password" or the familiar terms of pop culture such as Superman, Starwars ...

    On its side, Hot mail said that although there are up to 450,000 logins are usurped, but the number of users actually affected by the incident is not much. "Only less than 5% of accounts have a valid password," the company's representative said.

     

    Here is a list of 10 domains and the 10 most "sticky" passwords in this security scandal:

     

    1. Yahoo.com (137,559)
