YouPorn Passwords

Customer details of registered users of the website YouPorn were recently revealed after a third-party chat service "failed to take the appropriate precautions in securing its user data”. According to various reports, it resulted in an estimated 1 million user names, email addresses and plain-text passwords being exposed, much to the embarrassment of those individuals I’m sure. My tests saw closer to 2 million unique usernames extracted from the files so I’m not sure why the discrepancy.

Since the data is now effectively in the public domain, I did a quick analysis of the passwords. While some may be attributed to the nature of the content of the aforementioned site, others are the usual suspects, with “123456” taking top honors by a large margin.

Here are the top 50.
