I saw on another news outlet they were interviewing some tech guy about how this happened. He pretty much said all the idiots who use 12345 or "password1" types of passwords are the ones who got hacked.

What a shocker. You mean an IT guy blamed the end user for something?

Well when you have systems that do random password generators on websites its a no brainer.

They go to the website with their setup enter the persons email and use the password generator to try to guess the password and push through.

So all the common passwords like:

123456

123456789

pass1

password1

qwerty


and on and on

Millions of dumb ass link clickers most likely were the biggest part of the problem.
