Various ways to scan for weak passwords in a database or on a comuter.
Posted on 2015-02-03
I have been researching the net for a tool like nessus or a standalone tool that can allow me to scan a pc, Microsoft sql server database, or data base table that holds passwords (clear text or encrypted). I have found a lot of articles but nothing that states: nessus can be used to scan a db or a host to determine if it stores weak passwords-this is how using this audit file or use this tool on your network to ind weak password in a DB (admin or user, schema). another example, is there a script I can run to find weak passwords on 16 SQL servers that I can use instead of going to each. I am open to suggestions. thanks in advance.
