According to SplashData, a password management app maker, it seems they still are. Using data from stolen passwords that were then released online, they have compiled a list of the 25 worst passwords of 2011.

Entry no.9 is probably the most ironic, and as for no.18, you're not as clever as you think you are...

1. password
