Default IEEE FTP server logs unsecured, leaving Apple, Google, IBM and Oracle details exposed

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/09..._leaks_logins/

Quote:
IEEE members will be scrambling to change their logins after it emerged that more than 100,000 members’ names and plaintext passwords were left in plain sight for more than a month.

In this documentation and analysis of the breach, Danish FindZebra computer scientist Radu Dragusin notes, among other things, that bad password habits can exist even among the computer scientists, engineers and standards-developers of the IEEE as anywhere else. The most common password, he notes, was “123456”, followed closely by ieee2012.
