Interesting insight on how someone would hack user accounts.  What stood out to me is how common the top 10 password heuristics that author uses.\ \ 1)   Your partner, child, or pet’s name, possibly followed by a 0 or 1    \ 2)   The last 4 digits of your social security number.\ 3)   123 or 1234 or 123456.\ 4)   “password”\ 5)   Your city, or college, football team name.\ 6)   Date of birth – yours, your partner’s or your child’s.\ 7)   “god”\ 8)   “letmein”\ 9)   “money”\ 10) “love”
