Your Password Is 12345? Password FAIL
It's hard to fathom why people don't get that 12345, 123456, and other similarly stupid passwords make their own information and their organization's info much less secure. But many people don't get it.
Dark Helmet from SPACEBALLS warned you a long time ago: "12345? That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! That's the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!"
I made the above demotivational poster in honor of this post from InformationWeek:

Do better with passwords!
