Description

By default, Standard & Poor's ComStock MultiCSP installs with a default password. The 'root' account has a password of c0mst0ck and the 'helpmcsp' and 'helpicl' accounts have no passwords initially, which is publicly known and documented. This allows attackers to trivially access the program or system and gain privileged access.
