快来看看你的密码有没有中招!



Bad habits die hard, so do the bad passwords. After evaluating more than 5 million passwords leaked on the Internet, a company called Splashdata found that computer users continue using the same predictable, easily guessable passwords, according to their 2018 report. Using these passwords will put anyone at substantial risk of being hacked and having their identities stolen.
坏习惯一旦养成便很难纠正,使用糟糕的密码亦是如此。在分析了超过500万条网络泄露的密码后,一家叫做Splashdata的互联网公司近日发布了2018年“最糟密码”榜单,数据表明人们仍然热衷于使用简单、易记的密码。这些密码在黑客面前毫无抵抗力,身份信息易被窃取。


While terrible passwords such as “123456” and “password” continue in the No.1 and No.2 spots, respectively, Donald Trump debuted on this year’s list with “donald” showing up as the 23rd most frequently used password, as many users deem  his name is so easy to remember, and appears all the time on media.
“123456”和“password”依然稳居2018年榜单前两名。值得一提的是,今年的榜单上还出现了美国总统特朗普的“donald”,排名第二十三位,这或许与他极高的曝光率,名字又易被猜出有关。

Undoubtedly these passwords pose threats to information safety. Hackers have great success using celebrity names, terms from pop culture and sports, and simple keyboard patterns to break into accounts online because they know so many people are using those easy-to-remember combinations.
毫无疑问,这些不动脑筋的密码对信息安全构成了巨大威胁。黑客使用名人的姓名、文化流行语、体育流行语,还有键盘上字母的简单排列,便能轻松入侵个人账户,因为他们知道,很多懒人都在用这些“弱智”密码。

Even with the risks well known, many millions of people continue to use weak, easily-guessable passwords to protect their online information. 2018 was the fifth consecutive year that “123456” and “password” retained their top two spots on the list. The next five top passwords on the list are simply numerical strings.
尽管很多人都知道使用简单密码存在风险,但仍有数百万人在使用这些“不堪一击”、容易记忆的密码。“123456”和“password”已经连续五年蝉联榜单冠亚军,跟在后面的五个密码也是换汤不换药,都是纯数字的简单排列。


Tips for Password Safety
密码安全小贴士

1. Use passphrases of twelve characters or more with mixed types of characters.
1. 密码要有一定长度,至少12位,且数字、字母、标点等混用。

2. Use a different password for each of your logins. That way, if a hacker gets access to one of your passwords, they will not be able to use it to access other sites.
2. 不同的网站尽量使用不同的密码。这样做的好处是即使黑客破解了一个密码,但其它网站的个人账户不会连带遭殃。

3. Protect your assets and personal identity by using a password manager to organize passwords, generate secure random passwords, and automatically log into websites.
3. 可以使用密码管理器软件管理密码,生成随机密码,并自动登入账号,以保护个人账户和身份信息。
