Statistics from 10,000 leaked Hotmail passwords

An anonymous user posted usernames and passwords for over 10,000 Windows Live Hotmail accounts to web site PasteBin.
PasteBin is currently down for maintenance but I managed to get a copy of the list and quickly generated some statistics from these passwords.
First, my impression is that these passwords have been gathered using phishing kits.
Even more, I think it was a badly designed phishing kit, one that didn't further authenticated the users to the Hotmail/Live website.
I think it just returned an error message after grabbing the credentials.
I'm saying that because some of the passwords are repeated once or twice (sometimes with different capitalization).
The users didn't understand what happened and entered the same password again and again trying to login.
Bellow are the statistics:
The list initially contained 10028 entries.
After I've cleaned up the list, removing entries without a password, I've remained with 9843 entries (passwords).
There are 8931 (90%) unique passwords in the list.

An anonymous user posted usernames and passwords of over 10,000 Windows Live Hotmail accounts to a web site called PasteBin. PasteBin is currently down for maintenance but I managed to get a copy of the list, and quickly generated some statistics from these passwords.

My impression is that these passwords have been gathered using phishing kits.  Even more, the phishing kit used most probably was badly designed, since it was one that didn't further authenticated the users to the Hotmail/Live website. I think it just returned an error message after grabbing the credentials.  I noticed this because some of the passwords are repeated once or twice (sometimes with different capitalization).  What most probably happened, is that the users didn't understand what was happening, and they tried to enter the same password again and again, thinking the password was wrong.

Below are the statistics:

  • The list initially contained 10,028 entries.
  • After I've cleaned up the list, like removing entries without a password,  I had 9843 valid entries (passwords).
  • There are 8931 (90%) unique passwords in the list.
  • The longest password was 30 chars long: lafaroleratropezoooooooooooooo.
  • The shortest password was 1 char long : )

Top 20 most common passwords:

  1. 123456 - 64
  2. 123456789 - 18
  3. alejandra - 11
  4. 111111 - 10
  5. alberto - 9
  6. tequiero - 9
  7. alejandro - 9
  8. 12345678 - 9
  9. 1234567 - 8
  10. estrella - 7
  11. iloveyou  - 7
  12. daniel  - 7
  13. 000000  - 7
  14. roberto  - 7
  15. 654321  - 6
  16. bonita  - 6
  17. sebastian  - 6
  18. beatriz  - 6
  19. mariposa  - 5
  20. america  - 5

Based on these passwords I think the phishing kit was targeted towards the Latino community.

Password length distribution:

  • 1 chars - 2 - 0 %
  • 2 chars - 4 - 0 %
  • 3 chars - 4 - 0 %
  • 4 chars - 31 - 0 %
  • 5 chars - 49 - 1 %
  • 6 chars - 1946 - 22 %
  • 7 chars - 1254 - 14 %
  • 8 chars - 1838 - 21 %
  • 9 chars - 1091 - 12 %
  • 10 chars - 772 - 9 %
  • 11 chars - 527 - 6 %
  • 12 chars - 431 - 5 %
  • 13 chars - 290 - 3 %
  • 14 chars - 219 - 2 %
  • 15 chars - 157 - 2 %
  • 16 chars - 190 - 2 %
  • 17 chars - 56 - 1 %
  • 18 chars - 17 - 0 %
  • 19 chars - 7 - 0 %
  • 20 chars - 14 - 0 %
  • 21 chars - 10 - 0 %
  • 22 chars - 8 - 0 %
  • 23 chars - 3 - 0 %
  • 24 chars - 3 - 0 %
  • 25 chars - 3 - 0 %
  • 26 chars - 0 - 0 %
  • 27 chars - 3 - 0 %
  • 28 chars - 0 - 0 %
  • 29 chars - 1 - 0 %
  • 30 chars - 1 - 0 %

As you can see from the list above, most of the passwords are between 6 and 9 characters long.  Average password length is 8 characters.

What kind of passwords were in the list? :

  • 3,713 = 42 %; lower alpha passwords : passwords containing only characters from 'a' to 'z'.
    Example : iloveyou
  • 291 = 3 %; mixed case alpha passwords : passwords containing  characters from 'a' to 'z' and from 'A' to 'Z'.
    Example: ILoveYou
  • 1707 = 19 %; numeric passwords: passwords containing only numbers ('0' to '9')
    Example: 123456
  • 2655 = 30 %; mixed alpha and numeric passwords: passwords containing characters from 'a'-'z', 'A'-'Z' and '0'-'9'.
    Example: Iloveyou12
  • 565 = 6 %; mixed alpha + numeric + other characters.
    Example: 1Love You$%@

As we can see and conclude from the list above, a big majority of users still use very poor passwords: 42 % (lower alpha only) and 19 % (numeric only), while only 6 % from all the passwords had passwords which use a selection of alpha numeric and other characters.

    Amazingly, American Express still limits its online account users to maximum 8 (yes–EIGHT!) purely alphanumeric passwords; even dashes and underrscores are verboten. I complained to their online tech support reps a few times directly, but to no avail. They should be scolded publicly for these unbelievably stupid and dangerous limitations.

    It’s not really valid to say that “a big majority of internet users” when the “study” is of users whose accounts have fallen to some hacking attempt. Users who are knowledgeable about password security would be less likely to give information to a phishing attack.

    The data is unreliable, as these are assumed to be from a phishing scam. The best statistics you will get would only apply to the population of users that will fall for a phishing scam. Also, this is assuming the passwords are real (I sometimes spitefully enter false information into phishing scams). Personally, I’d like to know how different the statistics would be for people that did not fall for the same scam.

    I cannot remember what I cannot remember. Cyber society built on this sort of password-system is a sand castle. One solution could be expanding the password sysytem to include graphis and photos in addition to characters so that uses will be able to select what they are good at from among them. One such solution named Mnemonic Guard is becoming well known in Japan.

    Couldn’t someone to tell Microsoft to send a mail to compromised accounts or instead put a site on the web where to ask if your password has been compromised?

    It seem incredible asking all people in hotmail to reset their password for a 10.000 leak.

    NOTE: Maybe, if you had the names of the accounts, you could be so kind to put a web form to ask if for my account.

    Many Thanks ;-)

    I’ve noticed a major flaw if you login via MSN Messenger. It ISN’T case sensitive!

    ie. if you use a upper and lower case alphas in your password, then it doesn’t matter if you type PaSSwoRD or password or PASSWORD.

    A huge oversight.

    I can’t believe it :) My hotmail password is also 123456

    But here’s a catch, its a /dev/null email account I use to give to sites which refuse to serve me stuff without registering, so it’s a sink for their spam crap.

    I wouldn’t be so quick to judge us all idiots, not everyone wants or needs a high level security and different randomized complex passswords for every authenticatable piece of asset we have. Crappy hotmail account is definitely not one.

    What’s worse is that some NY based national banks now only allow 4 digit PINs for ATMs. The teller asked if she could help with anything else- I complained about that and she told me to go online. Nice. Told her it was way less secure than the old 6 digit code.
