Give your password to complete strangers? No problem...
By Tim Richardson

When it comes to password security UK office workers are extremely lax, according to 
an unscientific survey of commuters at a busy London train station.

Two thirds of those quizzed were seemed perfectly happy to hand over their company 
passwords to complete strangers - which must make those in charge of IT security 
shudder in disbelief.

The survey, which comes ahead of a security conference, also found that the most 
commonly used password is the word "password".

The survey of 150 people at Victoria Station in London also found that the majority of 
workers would forward unsavoury material to co-workers, download confidential material 
on leaving, give passwords to friends and colleagues, and were willing to pass friends 
competitive information.
