It's always fun to see the list of most common passwords gleaned from published lists of purloined passwords. The most recent top 25 can be found at teamsid.com.
The top two maintained their positions on the list: "123456" and "password." And here's a new one on the list at #24: "passw0rd." Get it? Very clever. They used a zero instead of an o. The program probably required at least one number or character other than letters. Problem solved!
Of course, most of the stuff we have to seal with a password isn't worth stealing anyway. But it's like locking a car door. There may be nothing in there, but the idea of a thief browsing around in our personal space can be disturbing -- even more so knowing they can change the lock.

24) passw0rd (using zero)
I had to look up letmein. Sounded foreign. Nope. Let me in. Doh!
