Hacktivists Breach French E-Commerce Site

According the hackers:

  1. wnd target  :
  2. Category     : french e-commerce website, not that big, not that small
  3. Type         : SQLi (PHP/MySQL) + various XSS
  4. Total loss   : 729115+ customers accounts compromised with e-mails/passwd
  5.                1115050+ bank transactions exposed

Though many passwords were not released as a part of the breach to do any real statistical analysis, we can say this much:

  1. There are lots basic passwords such as 1234abcd, nathalie, etc...  Though 'baguette' did not make it onto the list.
  2. The password are in cleartext. 
  3. We do have to call out the most complex, hard core breached consumer password:
