So what are the worst passwords for 2012?

SplashData's list of frequently used passwords shows that many people continue to put themselves at risk by using weak, easily guessable passwords.

The top three passwords, "password," "123456," and "12345678," remain unchanged from last year's list.

New entries to this year's list include "welcome, " "jesus," "ninja," "mustang, " and "password1."
