General Security | Give me the ability to change the root password!
For goodness sake... the K1000 is a security nightmare. So at least give me the ability to change the root password.
Also you could (which would really be no big deal) change the settings of the web-server that you don't get 404 messages where you can find the current patchlevel of the K1000 and such things. Just drop the request. It really isn't that hard.
Not allowing customers to change the password is a big mistake. We all know the passwords for the kbox, we can find it online, we can login as root and change it. Its unfortunate that dell has to play this game with us.
