BlackBerry blacklists the 'Pooh' gang

Paul McNamara | Dec. 17, 2012
A report surfaced recently contending that BlackBerry OS 10 will include a list of 106 prohibited passwords designed to prevent the clueless from choosing the likes of 123456, blackberry, or the ever-popular "password" as their password.

Perhaps the oddest entry on the blacklist - oddest until I looked it up - is ncc1701. Now I understand that I will have to endure the mockery of the Star Trek crowd for having had to look it up.

Of course, it's not my ill-advised behavior that has earned the Starship Enterprise a spot on a password blacklist.
