3Com has issued a security advisory after top secret user names and passwords were made public. Products affected are certain Corebuilder Lan and Superstack II switches.
Nigel Oakley, 3Com?s European director of marketing, denied the user names and passwords had been posted on a public Web site. He said a customer had alerted the company that the details had escaped into the wider public domai.
The information is usually available only to 3Com engineers and users who have ?lost passwords?. The problem is that the user names and passwords are standard for each product and not specific to user organisations. 3Com has now posted on its Web site details of how to change the passwords.
Oakley said 3Com had been using standard passwords for ?a very long time? without security breaches. The details are only passed to users ?sparingly?, he continued adding that no other products are affected.
