Description

WinDSX installs with default admin credentials (the 'admin' account has no password and the database account is 'SA' with no password), which are publicly known and documented. This allows remote attackers to trivially gain privileged access to the software.

Classification

Attack Type: Authentication Management
Impact: Loss of Integrity
Solution: Workaround
Exploit: Exploit Public
Disclosure: Uncoordinated Disclosure
OSVDB: Security Software
