AppServ Open Project Remote Insecure Default Password

Synopsis

Description

The remote MySQL server appears to allow connections as root without a password. AppServ Open Project, an installation utility for APACHE/PHP/MySQL under Windows, creates a passwordless database by default. Anyone can log into the database and change data or increase their privileges.

Solution

Connect to the remote MySQL database and set a password.
