No, "Star Wars" is not a secure password

People never ever learn.

Saw this in the Wall Street Journal: the 2015 list of most common passwords.

Number one, with a bullet: 123456.

Don’t do that.

Number two: password. Seriously.

New on the list this year, and the real reason I’m doing this item, at number 25: starwars.

All one word. All lower case.
