"Strong" Passwords: We recently had information security training here at JW, and one thing that was stressed was strong passwords. Frankly, that's the weakest link for non-crackhead malicious breaches. It's hard to keep a strong password regime up, particularly since you should also not use the same password for multiple accounts or uses (but if you use multiple ones, you have so many more to remember -- and you shouldn't write them down anywhere either, at least not anywhere near where they might be used, i.e. where they might be useful).

Regardless of your level of concern regarding strong passwords, at the very least don't use weak passwords. Here's a list of 25 to aviod, along with some recommendations for strong passwords.
