"[T]he organisers of Infosecurity Europe 2003... asked [workers] a series of questions which included: What is your password? Three in four (75 per cent) of people immediately gave their password...

"Of the 152 office workers surveyed... The most common password was "password" (12 per cent) and the most popular category was their own name (16 per cent) followed by their football team (11 per cent) and date of birth (8 per cent). Two thirds of workers have given their password to a colleague (the same as last year) and three quarters knew their co-workers passwords."
