Password of Anonymous login on IIS

by Shanghai Sam In reply to Password of Anonymous log ...

When you install IIS, the installation routine creates a generic account name that the IIS services use to facilitate anonymous logons. The account's name is IUSER_machinename, and the system assigns and syns the password, that means the system will automatically change the password in a specified interval in order to protect web security. If you want to change the password, you change it in the User Manager in Domain and Service tab in Control Panel, change it immediately after installing IIS will protect from intruders prety on this account, but I doubt Microsoft or any party will mention the default password issues.

I am curious too.

simply adds to the question. Superfluous information that does not add anything to the question, and fails to answer it.

The first reply is correct.
The password for IUSR_machinename is different on every machine. There is no one set of password that will work on all machines.

Here are some of my boxes' password. RRJJHHELNAJKSH or something similar (14 characters), IUSR_Machinename, "" (blank password), underground rumors that sometimes password is password, but not on my boxes though. It just varies like the first person replied.

If you're looking for a magic one-size-fit-all key, nope, sorry.

If you're just curious, why don't you download a copy of L0pht and find out for yourself, with good intention of course.
