It's extremely important that everyone uses a unique password for MMG that hasn't been used for anything else especially HYIPs and autosurfs. There are scammer HYIP and autosurf admins out there that will steal people's email addresses and MMG accounts simply because people used the same password to signup to the HYIP and MMG.

Another important thing you should remember is that you should NEVER click links in spam emails you may receive. These emails may be disguised as new HYIP launches or even free gmail invites. When you click these emails, you could end up infected with spyware and end up getting your passwords stolen.

IMPORTANT

If you have already used your MMG password to make an account on a HYIP or autosurf, CHANGE YOUR MMG PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY.

12345 most popular stolen Hotmail password

Posted on 7 Oct 2009 at 08:44

The phishing attack that exposed the details of 10,000 Hotmail attacks has revealed that 12345 was the most popular password of those caught out, according to a security researcher.

That's alarming news given the glut of information and warnings that pepper the internet, especially given the fact that the second most popular password was 123456789.

The information was revealed by security research Bogdan Calin on his blog. Calin reviewed the list of 10,000 Hotmail accounts posted on PasteBin by hackers and discovered that of the 9,843 valid passwords, 82 of them used one of these two numbers.

Also popular, and equally weak, were the passwords 12345678, 1234567 and 111111 - which all featured in the top ten.

The rest of the top ten was filled out with names such as alejandra, alberto, and alejandro, leading Calin to suspect that the phishing kit was targeting Latinos.

Another interesting fact to be pulled from his research was the longest password, which came in at a staggering 30 characters and was "lafaroleratropezoooooooooooooo". The shortest password, on the other hand, was only one character long.

In general, Calin found that the majority of the passwords were between six and nine characters long, with the average password eight characters in length.

Hotmail users weren't the only ones caught out by the phishers, with GMail, Yahoo and AOL also reporting that their users have been targeted.
