I'm a Virgo outsider and don't have any
stake in this, but I think having default passwords adds unnecessary security
risk. It is an open source project and everyone can see the default password,
and it's just ammunition for script kids scanning for exploits. In Orion
we disable admin account by default and someone has to explicitly define
a password in server configuration before the admin account is activated.
This really doesn't add a lot of difficulty for a server admin and closes
an obvious potential security hole. Just my $0.05.

Should we change the default access to the admin console?
Virgo has never had any complaints about its current default
password, so admin/admin seems fine to me.
