Changing the default credentials

2 posts in this topic

Hello All

Is it possible to change all the default usernames and password to winsnort and its databases? I thought I read somewhere that the installations have already preconfigured credentials but can they be changed afterwards? Once the server has been built, can we change the default credentials?

 

Thanks,

JoPe

Sure use user root and you can change anything. It's better to just create new users with new passwords. Use the tutorial and create new users with new passwords, and make sure they have the appropriate permissions. After you have them created go in and change the authentication for the snort run line and  the Windows Intrusion Detection Systems security console. Once the new authentications are verified, the old users can be dropped.
