Network and endpoint security expert recently revealed that '123456' is the most commonly used password globally in its report, Exposed: Cyberattacks on Cloud Honeypots.
A honeypot is a system intended to mimic likely targets of cyberattackers so that security researchers can monitor cybercriminal behaviors, Sophos said, adding that honeypots were set up in 10 of the most popular Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers in the world.
