    Default Client passwords

    At client, we have access to a corporate Pluralsight account, for online learning, the password for the account there is something like this:

    =cv6$8JiK\Z;@zWO2,^x^Wz:z"{]L*f9


    On all the production systems, the passwords to petabytes of critical and highly sensitive data are usually something like this:

    Prod
    Admin
    Password1

    Not since I learned their passwords.

    I did once have access to a treasury system that wasn't terribly well secured. It would have been quite possible to transfer a few billion to an offshore account and disappear.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Encountered the same in civil service ....external accounts needed KeyPass - internal accounts only needed basic guesswork.

    One supplier I dealt with used the same admin username and password across civil and commercial customers and still do. Worrying 😱
