The worst password of 2013 isn't even a word. It's the numbers 1-2-3-4-5-6. The usual winner -- "password" -- finished second. The list is published annually by security firm Splashdata and is based on the most-stolen passwords of the year. Splashdata says 1-2-3-4-5-6 took the top spot in large part because of a security breach at Adobe in October, which affected more than 48 million users. The words "photoshop" and "adobe123" made the list as well. Here's the full list courtesy of Splashdata:

1. 123456
