Cyber experts uncover 2 million stolen passwords to Web accounts

I guess these days 2 million passwords is peanuts.
Graham Cluley, an independent security expert, said it is extremely common for people to use such simple passwords and also re-use them on multiple accounts, even though they are extremely easy to crack.

"People are using very dumb passwords. They are totally useless," he said.
It's not clear to me if he's referring to the passwords, or to the people who use them.
