Description: Changes password on multiple computers centrally. Ideal for centrally changing the Local Administrator password on a group of computers.
Uses the currently logged in user and searches for computers on the network that the user can log in to as a local user, and changes the password of the user remotely.
This will work with domains and workgroups. Given 10 computers which all have a local user account 'fred' with the same password, when 'fred' runs this program, it will attempt to change the passwords on all 10 computers and will report errors if it could not change the password.
Worm Seeks Out Network Passwords The latest version of the SDbot worm contains network-sniffing software that enables it to steal passwords from other computers, say researchers at antivirus firm Trend Micro (Nasdaq: TMIC).
