Billabong Password Dump Analysis

Over 20,000 passwords, supposedly leaked from Billabong have been floating around. And as usual, I like to grab the passwords and analyze them for patterns. So I took 21,435 of them and ran them through the password analysis program Pipal.

The Complexity of the Passwords:

And Character Sets Used:

And finally, and most importantly, the question that we always ask and the one that everybody wants to know.

Was “Monkey” one of the top passwords?

The answer is….

YES!

Pfhew, had us worried there. It slipped down to #10 – but as usual in password dumps – along with the company name, “password”, and “12345” – our favorite password “monkey” is there!
