    Hello there,

    Are there recent common password lists for the english speaking terratories?
    because most research results seem to be from the 80's and not optimised

    i'm working on a LDAP plugin that deals with {SSHA} and uses other patches to
    do the {SHA} & {CRYPT}, all in one go with a .ldiff as input.
    would be usefull to have some good word lists to test against and create some
    stats on the level of security of some ISP and telco ldiffs i use.
