    cross I don't know about you, but I get the impression that the guy just took some pass cracking file and copied what was in there?

    There are certainly quite a few "defaults" from way back.

    I don't think that lists such as that are very useful, other than that you would use them to check for known default passwords that migh be included in a cracking dictionary. Otherwise you would base it on a common language dictionary (English may not be appropriate )

    I would say that the solution should lie in establishing an appropriate policy in the first instance, and checking that all passwords meet this policy before they are accepted.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    qwerty
    abc123
    blue32
    Hey, whats wrong with qwerty? And how do you know my AO password!
    Drugs have taught an entire generation of kids the metric system.
