That’s a pretty funny cartoon. What’s not funny is the fact that people do actually use the same user name and password for so many sites. =/

Yeah, it’s pretty disturbing to be honest. I also find the simplicity of most people’s passwords worrying. There are quite a few sites out there that have a listing of the ‘top used passwords’. Of course the lists all have different orders in which the ‘top’ offenders are, but in general the content of the lists are the same.
Check this one out for example:
123456 – now that’s a password you can be proud of!
