'Password' isn't a good password

Without a doubt, 2014 was the year of high-profile Internet hacks. One immediate way to protect yourself? Your passwords. Obviously, we're failing miserably at this easy line of defense. Password management firm SplashData recently released its annual list of the year's worst passwords (the company analyzed 3 million passwords leaked online). Holding strong at No. 1 is "123456." Wow, c'mon people. And No. 2? "Password." How original. And dangerous.
