Submission + - Syrian President's email hacked... Password was 12345-> 1

Nominei writes: The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports that the Syrian President, aides and staffers had their email hacked by Anonymous, who leaked hundreds of emails online. Reportedly, many of the accounts used the password "12345" (which their IT department probably warned them to change when the accounts got set up, of course).
