Worst Password.  Ever.

There have been reports on what has to be the worst password.  Ever.  And maybe the most dangerous too.

00000000

Yes, it appears that eight zeros was the launch code for the Minuteman rockets that carried nuclear warheads.  Seems the military was worried that that when the chips were down, they wouldn't be able to get any fancier passcode through the disrupted communications that they expected after a Russian nuclear strike.

They got away with it for 20 years!

Hopefully, if you're reading this, then you won't be trying similar tricks.  To make matters easier, LastPass and 1Password both have new versions which I will look at shortly!
