Analysis of the 32 million passwords recently exposed in the breach of social media application developer RockYou last month provides further proof that consumers routinely use easy to guess login credentials.
Sensitive login credentials - stored in plain text - were left exposed because of a SQL injection bug in RockYou's website. RockYou admitted the breach, which applied to user password and email addresses for widgits it developed, and pledged to improve security in order to safeguard against future problems.
Database security firm Imperva analysed the frequency of password disclosed by the breach, prior to publishing a report on Thursday on Consumer Password Worst Practices, a problem illustrated by the top ten passwords thrown up by the RockYou security snafu (below).

What’s the secret word? You can use this commands: unzip gpg.zip sudo gpg -import tryhackme.key sudo gpg message.gpg ls cat message. You can see my operations.
The trivial nature of the top ten RockYou passwords is bad enough, but worse is that nearly 50 per cent of passwords records exposed by the RockYou breach used names, slang words, dictionary words or trivial passwords (consecutive digits, adjacent keyboard keys), Imperva discovered.
Password database breaches have happened before, of course, but the size of the RockYou breach allowed for the most in-depth analysis of real-world passwords to date. These days the average surfer maintains scores of login credentials for social networking and e-commerce sites.
If these login names and password are easy to guess then it's all the more likely that hackers will be able to break into accounts using brute force dictionary attacks and readily available password cracking tools. If users (as they often do) use the same login credentials for social networking sites and more sensitive accounts (email, online banking etc) then the problem gets even worse.
Consumers, or by extension business users, help themselves by using hard to guess (strong) passwords. Persuading users to use stronger passwords is an age-old problem that dates back to the dawn of the PC era.
Imperva’s CTO Amichai Shulman said that a 1990 Unix password study revealed a password selection pattern similar to that exposed by the RocKYou breach. 'The problem has changed very little over the past 20 years,' he added.
Tips from Microsoft (here), US CERT (here) and Sophos (here) outline strategies for choosing stronger passwords. ®
Password! password!! password!!
Password is a common security nowadays, you will find implemented everywhere, if you want to login on your account (Facebook Twitter LinkedIn etc), you will have to enter the correct username and password. There are other online services which is required username and password for getting connect for the example FTP, ssh, Telnet etc. Password is very common security widely used for securing data and accounts all over world.

But sometime this password is creating trouble for users itself because In long time user does not use his correct credential for accessing services he will forget soon due to human tendency. I will tell you about a router password cracker tool which help you to recover router password.
So this time authorized user is feeling hopeless to access their services/account. I know the services owner provide alternative way to recover your account but sometime user doesn’t have such type of facility. so I am writing this article for those who have Forget it username and password of routers admin panel.
There are lots of the routers available in the market and have the different-different a security layers. Every security layer of security is protected by the password. and mostly such type of the router are used in a big organisations. but I am not talking about those routers I am talking about to the simple router which is used in the home and small offices. Maybe you are using such type of router for the Wi-Fi connectivity and accessibility.
Yeah you got right thing. All the settings have been done by administrator. but Sometime you have need to change the configuration of the router for example you want to change the Wi-Fi password, Mac filtering etc. In this case you have to access to the router’s configuration page over http.
For accessing router’s admin panel over the http you will have to enter the correct username and password. Then you can change such type of the configuration. You will access the router in the browser you will have to enter the default gateway IP address. if you don’t know about default gateway IP address then. you can check by running following commands in CMD.
ipconfig findstr /i “Gateway”
If you are using Kali Linux then you can run the following commands forgetting the default gateway
Now you have IP address of the router and you can access admin panel why entering this IP address in browser,
The biggest problem is start from the here because it will ask for the username and password if you have the forgotten me your credential then you will not able to access router configuration page. so for getting know the correct username and password you can use Router password cracker tool hydra.
Hydra is just not only used for the cracking router password it will also help to crack another online services authentication. are you should follow the given steps.
Run Hydra-gtk Graphical User Interface:
- Applications > Password Attacks > Online Attacks > Hydra-gtk
Here you will find the Hydra is ready for cracking router password but to before start the attack you will have to make a some changes in configuration tabs

Configure Tab target:
- First check on the single target and give the IP address of default gateway ( router’s IP address)
- In a port option give port number 80
- In protocol option give http-get
Configure Password tab:
First thing you will have to enter the username, are mostly we don’t know the username but you will find the username written on back side of your router sometime maybe the admin, administrator etc. I have found my username is admin. So I have entered the user name as admin
In a password section check on the password list and click over the blank space then the new window will be pop up there you will have to provide the location of word list or dictionary. I am using here the default dictionary in a Kali Linux named rockyou.txt. Click over blank space and go in a flying location Filesystem> usr > share > wordlists > rockyou.txt
