Who should be more embarrassed?

Ars Technica reports that one of the top cybercriminals wanted by the FBI had a ridiculously easy password. It was his cat’s name.

So, who committed the bigger blunder here? The criminal, or the FBI’s agents who didn’t bother to use standard passwords like pet names (or even a dictionary attack)?

I think the criminal wins this contest by an edge. No matter how notorious the guy is, he’s an idiot for not using a more secure password.
