Common User Passwords Profiler

Interesting python script which when used in conjunction with information from social media i.e. Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin it can create a possible password list for the user. With social media being so popular and virtually all the users have account in at least one of these sites, it is easier to know a user’s background by correlating the various account profiles. This public information can also be leveraged to guess answers to a user’s secret questions.  The Python script can be found here;
