Gents,

I'm in an audit and I was asked by my syslogins are showing null password values for the master DB.  If I look at the permissions on the master Db I only have 5 accounts, 2 are service, and the rest built in.  Any ideas why these are showing up?  I'm on SQL 2008 R2, though I upgraded this box from SQL 2008.  I have attached a screen shot of the syslogins table as well as the permissions on the master db

Thanks.

syslogins is an ancient view.  I believe it always returns NULL in the "password" column.

As Scott has indicated and SQL Server's BOL confirms:
password   nvarchar(128)   Returns NULL.
