I recently stayed at a hotel and wanted to put my wallet in the electronic safe in my room.
Unfortunately, the last occupant left the safe locked-open after he used it.
(The door was open, but the bolts were extended so you couldn't close the safe.)
I couldn't reset the code because the door must be unlocked to do that.
I figured I might as well make a few attempts before I gave up, so I began typing
codes on the keypad.

0000 (beep) 1111 (beep) 1234 (click!)

Yep, it only took three tries. This got me wondering if there were any common/default
security code lists out there. I've seen many password lists (secret, money, love, god, etc.)
out there, but I don't remember seeing on just for numbers. It would be useful in a
situation like this.

Anyone seen a list like that? Interested in creating one?

I havent got a list, or seen a list for that, but here are some that come to mind: 1324, 1357, 2468, 9999, 8888, 7777, 6666, 5555, 4444, 3333, 2222, 1111, 2345, 3456, 4567, 5678, 6789, 7890, 0000, 1470, 3579, 4680, 1212, 0101......and thats all the ones that i can think off that are really easy to guess.

Look up a list of common default VMB password and/or commonly used ones.

I would imagine with a safe like that, each user should be able to set their own password. So this is not so much a default password as it is a poorly chosen one. So there is not really a list like that, but you can think how careless people choose their passwords. First, it has to be something they'll remember. It could be something you can't guess (unless you know them) like their house number or the last four digits of their phone number. But leave it to careless people to choose a simple pattern on the keypad. Depending on the shape of the keypad, it could be anything (from 3575 to 1234). Just think like an uninterested, ignorant (in the methods of security) person in a hurry.

You forgot 1337 and 7331. I apologize in advance to all those for whom this holds true.

Yeah...I think on almost every one you choose your own pin, but there are preventions against brute forcing those safes anyway.
I remember in high school we had a circuit with a removable PIC and number pad...we'd have to write the main program for the PIC.
I think it's 3 failed attempts before it refuses any more attempts on most....and 4 on a few that I've seen...I'm pretty sure the one we have at home is 4, but its a 5 digit number.

sorry to burst your bubble but a safe like that is reset by the little old house keeping lady after every guest leaves. the bolts are extended so you have to reset the password in order to close it (because people accidentally lock them). all you really had to do is call the front desk and ask for the default code or a lot of times it's posted in the instructions on the wall next to the safe.

about the 4 digit codes, i think a lot of people use month/day of their birthday, last four of their social, last four of their phone number, etc. Stuff that they won't forgot, usually it's the same number for their ATM pin. and I'm not too sure about your commonly used passwords either, this isn't 88'. Most systems nowadays won't let you have a password under 8 characters, mixed with caps and symbols.
