The top Ten - in general are:
password
root
who
guest
admin
test
systest
manager
operator
system

A recent survey of 157 users found that 10 used a form of the account name
3 were the same as the account name
10 related to the account name
19 users first name
17 other first names
7 related to users job
1 name of the company
1 random character password
32 forms of a calender date
7 UNCHANGED from the defaults

Then each system has its most common defaults..

As in a VMS: vax, vms, dcl, demo, test, help, news, guest, decnet,
systest, uetp, default, user, field, service, system, manager, operator...

Now when the engineer from this design team joins SUN, what is the
likelyhood that he will put "his" favorite "backdoor" in their new OS.
