2.1.a: Default Passwords
Verify that that no endpoint uses vendor-supplied default accounts and passwords


This query attempts to log on to specified Windows endpoints with default vendor-supplied accounts and passwords to verify that ALL default passwords (including Guest, Administrator and default SNMP communities) have been changed. Hackers often use default account names and passwords to compromise endpoints.

Action1 can help to automate checking of default accounts on all Windows workstations to make sure they cannot be compromised by logging in using any default credentials.

Sign-up for Action1 Free Edition to install/uninstall software and patches, receive real-time alerts and view instant data from your endpoints, or run live or scheduled queries with the ability to export to CSV or Excel. Action1 Endpoint Security Platform is entirely SaaS, with online web interface (no management tools to install) and it has zero cost for basic functionality. Running in the Cloud, Action1 discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and you can query your entire network in plain English.
