As the fallout from the Ashley Madison hack continues, the most popular passwords have been revealed and confirm that the majority of the site’s users aren’t exactly tech-savvy.

In fact, looking at some of the top examples, it’s hard to believe that many of these guys and gals weren’t caught out a heck of a lot sooner by suspicious partners.

Seriously, the majority of these are absolutely hilarious, with the most common being the extremely predictable ‘123456’, ‘12345’ and ‘password’. Incredibly, ‘ashleymadison’ also cracks the top 20.

This is on a site, remember, which is designed for married men and woman to find someone with whom they can have an affair. Not exactly top security on display here.

There are also a number of sex-related passwords which reflect the nature of the site but wouldn’t exactly take a hacking wizard to crack, such as ‘iloveyou’, ‘horny’, ‘f*ckme’ and ‘bigd*ck’. Classy stuff.
