Slashcode Default Admin Password Vulnerability

Solution:
Slashcode has recommended that administrators change the admin users' passwords from the default installation passwords:

"check in your database what your passwords are by SELECT aid,pwd FROM authors;. This will give you a list of all your admin users and passwords. You can either change any unchanged passwords via the admin interface via the "Authors" admin menu URL, or go into the database: UPDATE authors set pwd = 'newpassword' WHERE aid = 'aidinquestion'; "
