Former LulzSec member Jeremy Hammond - once the FBI's most wanted and charged with hacking security firm Stratfor - seems to have failed to prevent police accessing his laptop due to a poor password.

During a police raid in March 2012 he raced through a friend's Chicago home to shut and lock his laptop.
But the effort appeared in vain Hammond, 29, told the Associated Press, as his password was both short and likely predictable: 'Chewy123', taken from the name of his cat.
