Do you use any of these passwords? Change them if you do.

Listing of passwords used by the Conficker Worm. If you use these, change them. (IMG: J.Anderson)

Thanks to database breaches like those suffered by RockYou and Gawker, leaked passwords on Pastebin, and password caches stored in Malware like Conficker, the criminals of the world have an impressive starting point to guessing your passwords.

If you use any of the passwords listed below, change it immediately and never use it again. The risk is simply not worth the ability to remember something quickly. Don't say we didn't warn you.

12-16-2010: This list has changed since Conficker started causing problems, and RockYou lost everything. This latest update includes the top 250 passwords from the Gawker breach.

The following link is to a damn useful tool.

The Praetorian Security Group developed this tool so that you can check your passwords. Use it to see if they have ever been exposed due to a breach, or if they can be easily cracked with Ophcrack, a known password auditing tool. It will even list errors and potential problems.

The tool itself stores nothing, and neither does the form. We here at The Tech Herald trust them. The Praetorian Security Group is honestly one of the good guys in Information Security.
