Horde Default Admin Password Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for default admin password vulnerability in Horde

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that uses a default
administrative password.

Description :

The remote installation of horde uses an administrative account with
no password. A possible hacker can leverage this issue to gain full control
over the affected application and to run arbitrary shell, PHP, and SQL
commands using the supplied admin utilities.

Note that while the advisory is from Debian, the flaw is not specific
to that distribution - any installation of Horde that has not been
completely configured is vulnerable.
