Gawker Media hacked; passwords leaked, then analyzed

Gawker Media hacked; 188, 279 passwords revealed, then analyzed by the Wall Street Journal.

“Monkey” is in the top 10? Makes me feel positively brilliant with my password choices across the board. Although judging by my own password choices, I’d wager (hope?) that people don’t really go crazy with difficult passwords for media sites like Gawker, where they’re not going to log in frequently. People may (hopefully?) be more creative with passwords for stuff like their email and bank accounts.
