Password Security and Case Sensitivity

2006-05-12 - Von Svarthol

Previous to our last hardware upgrade, EVE passwords were case sensitive, but an incorrect setting in Windows SQL 2000 took away the sensitivity. We were never happy with the reduced security, but we were not given an opportunity to address this issue until another database change took place.

Yesterday's hardware upgrade gave us an opportunity to return password case sensitivity to the SQL Server settings and the log-in process. Account security has returned to its previous levels. If you log-in credentials are rejected, please verify your password and the case of all letters in it.
